Blizzard Entertainment have announced Overwatch’s Uprising in-game event is now live. From now until May 1, Overwatch Uprising turns back the clock, giving players the chance to explore the stories behind some of their favourite heroes and experience first-hand a pivotal moment in Overwatch history. Take a hop, skip and jump to check out the trailer.
Journey seven years into the past to quell an uprising on the streets of King’s Row. A group of omnic separatists known as Null Sector has overwhelmed the area, and you must defeat the robots to liberate the city. You’ll need to suit up with your friends and join forces as Tracer, Torbjörn, Reinhardt, and Mercy in a brand-new cooperative brawl. It’s Tracer’s very first mission, and the future depends on you.
You’ll be able to unlock pieces of the past during this ultimate recall, as all in-game Loot Boxes have been replaced with Uprising Loot Boxes, containing mementos from the earlier eras of Overwatch. And once you’ve unlocked an Overwatch Uprising item, it will be yours forever.
Experience a pivotal moment in history from before the fall of Overwatch. Join a strike team of Overwatch agents—including the newest recruit, Tracer—as they undertake a vital mission to stop an omnic uprising in King’s Row. Drop into the action and play as one of the four charged with completing this critical objective.
As always, your efforts will be rewarded. You’ll earn Uprising Loot Boxes as you play, unlocking new cosmetic skins, highlights, emotes, and sprays themed after key moments from throughout the history of Overwatch. Uprising Loot boxes are also available for purchase—but hurry, they get re-encrypted and filed away in the archives come May 1.
