Overwatch Uprising Event Returns

Overwatch Uprising Event Returns

It primarily showcases the returning Brawl mode and skins from previous year; the bulk of the brief video is essentially promising that players will have another shot at all of that.

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.

As with all Overwatch events, Uprising added over 100 cosmetic items last year and expect the same this year. Could this indicate a new mission available to play during the event? In the first situation Reinhardt, Mercy, Torbjörn, and Tracer would take part in an Overwatch mission against Omnic robots.


At the Payload Tour events, Blizzard promises a unique photo experience to "capture your inner hero", along with "never-before-seen Overwatch cosplay". While these, along with several other teams around the world who competed in the highest tier of competition prior to the Contenders restructure, were offered invitations to the first season of Contenders in 2018, they will have to fight to avoid future relegation like any other team.

However, upon closer look, the teaser video actually contains some secret clues. The event itself will begin April 10th, which will take place within the map King's Row (shocker, right?). Blackwatch characters and story elements might also be included, after some eagle eyed fans noticed a glitch at 00:13 that changes the file to Classified, the realm in which Blackwatch operates.

What do all these clues mean? "File 00382 - King's Row Uprising" appears to change to what fans believe says "File 00274 - Blackwatch Archives".
