A second animated short for Blizzard’s upcoming shooter, Overwatch, has been released. And this time, it features the cold-blooded assassin Widowmaker.
The animated short, entitled “Alive,” was released on PlayStation’s YouTube channel. In the short, Widowmaker faces off against Tracer while trying to assassinate the Omnic-equality leader, Tekhartha Mondatta. The short also shows the catalyst for the Second Omnic Crisis. You can check out the video below.
Alive follows the first Overwatch animated short, Recall. These videos balance storytelling while making references to in-game mechanics. Alive shows off the abilities of both Widowmaker and Tracer.
Overwatch will release on May 24th. The game will release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game’s open beta will be held May 5th-9th, and will be available on all three platforms. All of the maps and heroes will be playable during the beta, but progress made will not carry over to the main game.
