Overwatch Uprising Event Returns April 10

Overwatch | 50 minutes

The teaser video for the Overwatch Uprising event looks very simple, with File 00382 - King's Row Uprising apparently recorded seven years ago.

The last Uprising Event was a PvE experience that allowed players to team-up with friends to do battle in King's Row with Tracer, Torbjorn, Reinhardt and Mercy.

As promised, Blizzard plans to bring back a revamped version of Overwatch's Uprising event. You may also remember that Moira's origin video showed her in a Blackwatch uniform too so perhaps she'll be receiving a new skin. Whether this is a new game mode, new cosmetics, or lore, there is usually something about the repeated event that differs from its' predecessor.

▲ The display in the teaser changed for a moment.


In addition, the name of the event may be changed to Blackwatch Archives or simply Archives.

We opined shortly after it went live that Uprising was "the best case for an Overwatch campaign yet", because "it's a story that genuinely matters".

The event will run from April 10 through 30, and pit you and three friends up against omnics running rampant through London. Or just another secret mission that lends insight into the modern state of the in-game world? Blackwatch was the covert operations arm of Overwatch before it was shut down and suspended for suspicious activity. Given that the history of Overwatch plays such a significant role in what's happening in the current year, exploring past events through in-game action seems like a fun opportunity.

Blizzard has confirmed that this event will return, giving players a chance to play it in case they missed out on the mission (as well as skins) during its first debut.
