Overwatch Uprising Event Returns Next Month

Overwatch Uprising Event Returns Next Month

Overwatch players have something to look forward to in April with a new Uprising event that is dated for April 10th.

This is the latest event since the Chinese Lunar Year festivities went down in February with the ever popular Capture the Flag mode and unique gear to earn. There will be over 100 declassified loot box items featuring pieces of the past to unlock, and players will be able to join Tracer on her first mission in the Uprising co-op brawl.

While the teaser released from Blizzard looks like the same as the one we got past year, there is an interesting little tidbit at the end that suggests there may be something new in the works for Uprising.

As promised, Blizzard plans to bring back a revamped version of Overwatch's Uprising event. Could this indicate a new mission available to play during the event? The event also offered several legendary skins and other event-exclusive cosmetic items. However, it appears that Blizzard has something extra in store. In that hunt, a Twitter post by the official Twitter account hints at the return of their infamous Uprising event.

Did you see anything interesting in the tweet?

The event will run from April 10 through 30, and pit you and three friends up against omnics running rampant through London. It looks like it is glitching out, but what is really happening is that some of the text are being replaced. It's hard to see the name of the file, but one can only assume it's something top secret; i.e, Blackwatch. This was wildly successful the first time around, with the Google Trends tracking of Overwatch showing that the game hasn't reached a popularity equal to the last one since it ended.
