Blizzard Entertainment has a new team-based multiplayer shooter called Overwatch. To build up the game before its nearing release date, Blizzard has published some entertaining animated shorts. There are two of them so far, the first centered on Winston (which you can watch here) and the second one featured Widowmaker.

The animated short is about 6 minutes long and is full of action. Is all starts out as an on going assassination plot. The target is Halo, a spiritual robot leader (you can see him in the game as Zenyatta, one of the playable heroes) and the assassin is Widowmaker.

Widowmaker is stalking the rooftops as Halo is set to give a speech about the peace that humans and robots both could reach together. Along with the crowd is Tracer, (another playable hero) she senses that something is wrong and goes to check things out. She then discovers Widowmaker and her assassination plan is uncovered.

Watch what happens next. Did Widowmaker’s plan succeed? Or did tracer get to her in time? A big “what if “ will be raised at the end of the video. Get to watch the Overwatch animated short entitled Alive here:

Overwatch will be officially launched on May 24, 2016 and you can play it on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


An Open Beta will also be available as well. You can get the details here.
