“Uprising,” the latest event for Blizzard’s Overwatch, is now live, pitting teams of four players against waves of Omnic AIs as they attempt to retake King’s Row from the Null Sector. In addition to the new mode, there are a ton of new skins, sprays, emote, voice lines, and highlight intros.
Players can take control of Torbjorn, Mercy, Reinhardt, and Tracer in a scenario set seven years before the current day in-universe. The Omnics of Null Sector have taken over King’s Row, blasting apart buildings and installing air defense guns that the heroes must capture to allow a payload to be dropped, which then blows up a door to the final section, where Bastions and Orisas must be destroyed to win. There are three difficulties—Hard, Expert, and Legendary—and beating each of them grants exclusive sprays. There is a second version of the mode where players can take any hero they choose, but this lacks the achievement sprays.
There are also new skins for multiple heroes, including a partially cybernetic Genji, a pre-transformation Widowmaker, a young shaven Torbjorn, and more. Which skins have you gotten so far? Let us know in the comments!
