Blizzard Entertainment has officially revealed Overwatch Uprising! In this event, players celebrate Overwatch history, adding a new co-op PvE mode taking place in King’s Row during Tracer’s very first mission on the Overwatch team where they attempt to halt an omnic uprising.
Blizzard’s Description of the brawl:
Journey seven years into the past and join a group of Overwatch agents fighting through the streets of King’s Row to quell an uprising led by Null Sector, a rogue group of omnics. Team up with your friends and play as Tracer, Torbjörn, Reinhardt, or Mercy to defeat the robots and liberate the city. There are no reinforcements. Failure is not an option. The future depends on you.
Additional patch content includes plenty new skins, highlights, emotes and of coarse, a ridiculous amount of sprays which are all obtainable through in game loot boxes and in game credits.
Jeff Kaplan, Vice President of Blizzard and Game Director of Overwatch added that there’s another version of the brawl where you can play any hero you want:
We heard after the Junkenstein event that a lot of people wanted to play with any hero they wanted. So we’re giving you sort of two versions: The intended version, but also the super fun play-whoever-you-want version.
The Overwatch Uprising event is set to run From April 11th to May 1st.
