Overwatch Uprising event is live today

So it’s not called Insurrection. It’s called Uprising. English has a lot of words that mean the same thing, so we’ll forgive the leakers. Yep, Blizzard’s just confirmed that Overwatch’s new event, Uprising, is here. It’s a limited-time event, mind you, so you’d better get in there.

“Get ready for the ultimate recall! Our latest seasonal event turns back the clock, giving you the chance to relive a pivotal moment in Overwatch history. Explore the stories behind some of your favorite heroes, unlock pieces of the past with over 100 declassified Loot Box items, or suit up with your friends and join Tracer on her very first mission in a brand-new cooperative brawl. It’s time to rewind the future. Welcome to Overwatch Uprising!”

Trailers below — in English this time!

Makes me wish extra hard for the MMO this was once a part of

I played it a couple times, once with the default and once with the “all heroes” option (Mercy, Reaper, Bastion, and Soldier 76). I wanted to do my normal Junkrat, but we didn’t have a healer and I figured we’d need one. It is funny to see 47 eliminations as a Mercy.

I haven’t gotten any of the skins, emotes, or highlights yet, though. I’ll probably buy a handful of them if I don’t get any by the last day.

Holy shit i’ve had some good fun with this one. Default is a bit ‘meh’ like junkenstein because someone has to be tank and healer and all in all feels a bit dull but the all heroes version is crazy fun with all the team combos. I was stomping it as Orissa but healing on zen was frantic but fun in its own way. I imagine theres probably some double pharah double lucio cheese to do it on the harder settings but all in all pve with your pick of heroes shows way more promise and i really would not be surprised if this is testing the idea of a campaign or single player game -which i think is something a lot of recent hirings could suggest anyway.

Also the lootboxes seem fairer, lot less doubles. Got the new skins for Orissa, Bastion, McRee, Genji, Torbjorn and the D.Va intro everyones going mental over so its really just mecy and maybe tracer i’m after right now. Thought i was lucky but pretty much everyones get at least half of it in my group of friends playing. Maybe its just a way smalller number of sprays and emotes and crap watering the pool?

Either way first time ive gone “oh crap its past 1 and i thought it was 11!” style update for overwatch in ages. Definitely worth it if you have the game.


It’s a pretty fun event. It definitely showcases that the PVE can be fully developed into a co-op PVE campaign.

Meh, may log in for the free lockbox and maybe play a few rounds for the first time all year, but I’m kinda over the game. Maybe jumping back in for this update will re-interest me a bit, at least a few of the skins look pretty good.
