Introducing Overwatch's Newest Deadly Hero: The Widowmaker

News Images II - 10557

Time for another peek at one of the more promising games of 2016.

As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog, developer Blizzard has produced a new animated short simply called Alive. And in it, we learn all about a new character: The Widowmaker.

Called a "merciless and deadly sniper," the developers describe her as a character perfect for players "who like to use a bit of stealth and deception to get the job done." She also comes equipped with a handy-dandy grappling hook that allows her to move quickly and silently to a new location. If she wants to get really nasty, she has access to some Venom Mines that will poison unfortunate trespassers in the vicinity. Of course, as you see in the Alive video, even the talented Widowmaker has trouble getting a good shot on Tracer, the hero that can blink rapidly around the battlefield.

If you didn't already know, Overwatch is a team-based shooter where two teams of six heroes each square off on objective-based maps. The locales are wildly diverse and even exotic, and the characters are also very distinct. To learn more, check out our recent preview.

And don't forget that the open beta on PS4 has been confirmed; it will run from May 5 to May 9 and you will have access to all 21 heroes and every map. Gonna give it a whirl?

well at least we know who everyone is going to be running around as.

i wonder if the story will go into detail as how humans/robots became one or where the robots came from.
