Blizzard has released more early gameplay footage for the upcoming arena based shooter, Overwatch. This latest video follows the character-morphing battlebot Bastion as he proceeds to defend the moving objective during a Payload match.

The video above demonstrates the versatility Bastion brings to the battlefield with his different configurations. Bastion is able to swap between a few different modes to best fit whichever situation it finds itself in. Its default, recon mode, allows him to walk through the level armed with a submachine gun. By using its reconfigure ability, Bastion can switch to its sentry mode. Though unable to move in this configuration, sentry allows Bastion to whip out a gatling gun and rain bullets down on the opposing team. Its ultimate ability can also be witnessed in the video and lets Bastion assume the form of a small tank equipped with a long range cannon for a limited time. 

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out some of the other gameplay videos released for Overwatch, like the ones for Reinhardt, Torbjörn, and Tracer. Otherwise, feel free to sign up for Overwatch’s beta which will open up sometime this fall.
