Overwatch’s next animated short, “Alive”, gets premiere date, will show the origins of an assassin


Blizzard have announced the premiere date for the next Overwatch animated short. 

In the mood for more release dates? Here is a lovely list of upcoming PC games.

We got the first animated short, “Recall”, just over a week ago, and it showed the backstory of Winston, the genetically-enhanced, armour-clad primate.

The next one, “Alive”, is all about Widowmaker, an assassin (ass-ass-in – god, I hope she uses tracer rounds) working for shady organisation Talon as she faces a fate-filled night in London’s King’s Row.

According to Blizzard, “you’ll discover how one death can change everything”.

Alive premieres exclusively on PlayStation.com April 3 at 12pm PT. If you live in the United States, you could catch a 60-second teaser during AMC’s The Walking Dead that same night.

Overwatch’s open beta begins on May 5.
