Unfortunately, things go horribly wrong, and Mei finds herself alone on her Arctic outpost nine years after first going into cryo-sleep. Nine years ago she was a happy-go-lucky scientist at Ecopoint: Antarctica, recording a last video log before being put into cryosleep.

Blizzard's Overwatch is steadily growing to be one of the biggest gaming communities out there, and right after Blizzard just announced the Junkertown map, we now have a new animated short exploring the origins of the game's resident climatologist, Mei. Her story page on the official site doesn't give too many details on her origin, other than she was the sole survivor of Ecopoint Antarctica, and she was determined to find out what was happening with the Earth's insane changing weather patterns. With Snowball at her side, Mei builds her blaster-until the power goes out. She basically constructs her ice gun as a way of trying to escape from her frozen research base where she was stationed as part of Overwatch's ecological conservationist research group.

During a sudden polar storm, the monitoring station in Antarctica was cut off from the outside world and damaged. With limited resources and time, Mei must use science to figure out a way to get help.

It's a rather cute short, and adds more color to Mei's origin story.
