Overwatch’s premiere femme fatale gets her own movie.


The second Overwatch short will release at 12:00pm PT on April 3, Blizzard announced today.

Called Alive, it features sniper Widowmaker and will be posted on PlayStation’s official YouTube channels. Here’s Blizzard’s description:

Alive weaves a tale of Widowmaker, the peerless Talon assassin who stalks her prey with deadly efficiency. In this episode, we spend a fateful night in London’s King’s Row—where you’ll discover how one death can change everything.

If you live stateside, you can view a 60 second teaser for the short during The Walking Dead season finale. This will air after the short releases, but okay?

If you missed it, you can watch the first Overwatch short here to learn a bit more about Winston and the eponymous program.

Overwatch launches in May for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
