Blizzard are getting into the full festive swing with a new stop-motion animated short, this time round Tracer is on 'cookiewatch' duty as a pesky Reaper attempts to steal Santa's cookies.

Back in May, we saw the first stop-motion animated short for Overwatch to celebrate the games second year anniversary. Blizzard must of taken in all the positive feedback and decided to create another for us to enjoy, introducing Tracers 'cookiewatch' and her mission to save Santa's cookies.

The short which would of been hours and hours of frame-by-frame work is about two and half minutes long and we can see Reaper jumping down to rob Santa of his cookies. Tracer see's what Reaper is up to and enforces the Christmas tradition of leaving the cookies for Santa. Dashing around the room and all around the Christmas tree with multiple shots fired from Reaper, Tracer and Reaper end up getting interrupted by Santa himself. Check out the above video for yourself, Overwatch is currently available on the PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
