Overwatch's Reaper looking at his very own cookie

Given the cinematics they've put out so far, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that the Overwatch team has now released a special animated short for the holiday season. What might come as a bit of a surprise, however, is that instead of the usual 3D animation, for this latest short they've chosen to use stop motion animation instead!

So if you're up for a bit of a heartwarming story starring Tracer and Reaper, allow me to share with you the latest "Cookiewatch" short. Have a gander, it's well worth the two or so minutes:

Overwatch is also currently having a holiday themed Winter Wonderland event, so if you're up for spreading the holiday cheer alongside your bullets, make sure to check it out before it goes away on January 2nd. There's a bunch of new and old cosmetics to collect, festive versions of maps to explore, and naturally, Mei's Snowball Fight and Yeti Hunt modes to mess around with.  

As a final note, if you enjoy this sort of stop motion animation, and especially if you love what they've done with Reaper and Tracer, you might be interested to hear that the team released a similar video for Overwatch's second birthday. Enjoy, it's a pretty good one!
