New Overwatch Uprising Event Goes Back in Time

Overwatch Matchmaking Adjusted in Uprising Patch

Overwatch has dabbled in PvE mode once before with the Junkenstein's Revenge brawl during last year's Halloween event. The mode allows you to play as either Tracer, Torbjorn, Reinhardt, or Mercy in King's Row as you team up against a "rogue group of omnics". Some are two-legged robots, some are wielding shields, and some look and attack exactly like Bastion.

Blizzard has been promising to make a huge announcement this week pertaining to a new event in Overwatch. Uprising highlights a new way to play in an event where Tracer and her fellow Overwatch heroes battle Omnic Null Sector waves in a modified version of King's Row. Orisa is also seen in the leaked trailer above, sporting a brand new skin.

Experience a pivotal moment in history from before the fall of Overwatch.

Although the original trailer has since been taken down, the video is already making its way around the internet with eager Overwatch fans picking it apart for clues regarding the new update.

The Overwatch: Uprising event runs from today, April 11, through May 1st. Also, 100 new objects such as models, entries, emotes, tags, etc. will be added to the game.

Meanwhile, many people attempting to log in will be presented with a message that they are in queue, with some ridiculous number of people ahead of them (mine says 50,000, currently).

"We've been hearing a lot of desire for more story, people want to know more about the story of Overwatch, they want to know more about the past of Overwatch", Kaplan continued. Although it's not confirmed whether they'll be the only playable characters in Uprising, that seems likely.
