Overwatch's Uprising Event Returns This April

Overwatch | 10 minutes

Uprising, the season event, will be coming to Overwatch again on April 10th!

At the Payload Tour events, Blizzard promises a unique photo experience to "capture your inner hero", along with "never-before-seen Overwatch cosplay". Taking what few hints are here, it's sounding like the new Uprising event will be centered around Blackwatch, which would lead to a whole new cast of characters and setting.

Last year's event chronicled a major event in Overwatch history, and gamers are hoping that this year's version of Uprising will also focus on a pivotal point in the multiplayer shooter's lore. Much like last year's event, the story sets up four players in a single team and they will have to fight there way against hordes of Null Sector battle drones, Bastions, and OR14s.

In the Uprising comic, it was confirmed that Jesse McCree was in London during the time of the omnic crisis.

So far, it's unclear if the event will be exactly the same as the previous year. "File 00382 - King's Row Uprising" appears to change to what fans believe says "File 00274 - Blackwatch Archives". The game's official Twitter account teased fans earlier with a short video that reveals both the date and location for the event.

King's Row Uprising will begin on April 10, according to a teaser post that Blizzard dropped on Overwatch's social media. Blackwatch worked along Overwatch and helped carry out missions, but the information stops there. To achieve this, the company is organizing small grassroots events that give players who want to play professionally a venue to show their skills, as well as draw in audiences who might not be familiar with the sport.
