In the second of four animated shorts promoting Overwatch, Blizzard’s upcoming team-based, competitive first-person shooter, the evil assassin Widowmaker plots to kill a beloved icon in front of a crowd of fans, and it’s up to Overwatch hero Tracer to stop Widowmaker.
Overwatch features a cavalcade of super heroes and villains, all of whom are drawn with Blizzard’s characteristic flair for imagination and detail. They’re not just playing pieces for players to choose from, they’re all characters in their own right, and Blizzard’s animated shorts are helping us get to know them.
The first Overwatch short, Recall, featured an ensemble cast. Alive is all about Tracer and Widowmaker as they battle over London’s rooftops.
