Blizzard's latest Overwatch short looks like it could have been made by Pixar

Blizzard airs long-awaited new Overwatch animated short for... Mei

Three adjectives you could just as easily ascribe to Blizzard's infrequent animated shorts that they've been slowly churning out for each character in the game's roster. Nine years ago she was a happy-go-lucky scientist at Ecopoint: Antarctica, recording a last video log before being put into cryosleep. Also, she's been in suspended animation for nine years, and she has no way of making contact with the outside world.

There are power issues, and her robot friend Snowball uses its power to keep the base going in Antarctica so Mei can try to reach a signal.

She soon discovers that the lapse in time has resulted in the disbanding of Overwatch, and the fact that all of her team members are still stuck in cryostatus, without any kind of pulse.

Trevor Siemian named Broncos starting quarterback
Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian (13) passes during the second quarter against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. He threw for 3,401 yards to go with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

During Blizzard's Gamescom event, the Overwatch team unveiled the latest CG short detailing the origins of one of the game's heroes.

Determined to find out what happened to the rest of Overwatch and escape the station, you'll watch Mei and Snowball prototype and build her first Endothermic Blaster - neatly made from a hairdryer and unused water cooler (someone smell a new skin on the horizon?). She eventually realizes that she can fix the dish and try to notify her team that team Overwatch is still around.

The animation, titled Rise and Shine, shows Mei recording a video log before entering cryosleep.
