Overwatch "Alive" Animated Short

Here is the second of four animated shorts that Blizzard is releasing to expand on the Overwatch universe.

The video tells us a bit more about Amأ©lie LaCroix, known as the Widowmaker. She's a French assassin, as you could probably guess, which means she's the sniper class. That grappling hook you see in the video is also one of her abilities in game, which is handy. In the animated short, called "Alive," we learn Widowmaker's backstory آ— without giving too much away, it seems she has a thing for spiders and she's all about living for the kill. You can watch the video above, and the first short, "Recall," about Winston, is embedded below. Two more such videos are expected before the game's release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 24th.
