From BigGameHunter come new screenshots from "Watchmen: The End Is Nigh"- Episode 2, to be released in July, timed to the release of the Vancouver-lensed"Watchmen" Blu-ray/DVD.

Episode 1 of the video game was released in March.

In Episode 1 of "The End Is Nigh", 'Rorschach' and 'Nite Owl II' are vigilantes during the 'Crimebusters' era, before the 'Keene Act' of 1977 outlaws masked crime-fighters.

After hearing a police bulletin, Nite Owl and Rorschach make their way to 'Sing Sing' to help quell a prison riot, only to discover the riots were a ruse to cover up the escape of 'The Underboss' crime lord.

Making their way to the 'Rumrunner' bar, the duo question a patron to find out who orchestrated the Underboss' escape. Chasing down apparent mastermind 'Jimmy the Gimmick' to an abandoned amusement park, they corner him on the tracks of a rollercoaster. Just as Jimmy blurts out that the Underboss is hiding in the sewers, a sniper shoots a cable, causing cars to careen into Jimmy knocking him off the roller coaster.

After calling for an ambulance, Nite Owl and Rorschach head for the sewers where they find missing government agent 'Mark Felt', tied up and bleeding. Felt tells them that the Underboss is at a construction site, looking to kill 'Watergate' investigative reporters, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

Exiting the sewers, Nite Owl and Rorschach are suddenly ambushed by the police. They fight their way through and race to the construction site where they confront the Underboss and see the two dead reporters.

The Underboss claims he he was framed for the murders as Rorschach and Nite Owl chase him though the construction site, before the 'Comedian' shoots the Underboss dead, revealing that he was the real mastermind behind all the events.
