Heroic Fan Memorialized In Game For Act of Bravery - MMORPG.com

A Chinese fan looking forward to the release of Overwatch recently died after an altercation with a criminal the night before the game release. Wu Hongyu witnessed the theft of a classmate's motorcycle and chased the perpetrator on his own. The two crashed and sadly Hongyu died as a result of his injuries. 

According to Reddit user Rebirdhk Blizzard has memorialized Hongyu by placing a spacesuit on the red side of the Lijiang Tower map with his name on it as well as the caption "Heroes never die" above it.
