Following the lead of the new web comic, Overwatch Uprising is an in-game adventure taking place now until May.
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.”
The new adventure adds another co-op brawl that takes place during Tracer's first mission. The mode is very similar to their Halloween content where players team up and take down robots. The story is about when the robots first started invading London.
The nice thing about this event is that there are two variations. The first being the "intended" version where you play as specific characters, similar to the Halloween edition. The second version allows players to tackle the event with any character they want. The update also adds hundreds of additional skins for all characters.
The event starts today and runs until May 1st.
