Fans clamour for Overwatch's mysterious Junker Queen

September 04, 2017 1 min read

That bastion of calm, rational order, the Overwatch fanbase, is going gaga over a potential new hero based on little more than a torn poster and a trailer narration.

The arena-shooter's upcoming Australia map, Junkertown, is a wasteland ruled over by one currently known only as "The Junker Queen", to whom tribute must be paid by all visitors. The self-proclaimed monarch narrates the trailer for said map, and can be glimpsed on a poster plastered within the map itself.

Naturally, it has been decided by the game's fanbase that she is absolutely amazing and is coming to the Overwatch roster. Moreso, she is already building a loyal following of servants with videos, fan-arts and cosplays popping up everywhere dedicated to the Legion of Doom-esque lovely, all spiked armour and Mad Max-haircut.

I too, won't deny being slightly intrigued and somewhat enamored with the mysterious ruler of the desolate wasteland. This situation recalls Sombra, who had the Overwatch community frothing at the mouth for months before they had even glimpsed her character design. It will be interesting to see if we learn more about this royal newcomer to the game's lore, and whether or not we will be swinging her mammoth axe in the future.

The Junkertwon map is currently playable on the Overwatch PTR.
