As one of the officially listed events, it won't surprise fans to learn that the development team are bringing it back for this year. The events that transpired were classified within Overwatch's archives. In the teaser tweet, we see the "Confidential" mission from seven years ago, featuring King's Row and segregated omnics, but there's also another secret.

The last Uprising Event was a PvE experience that allowed players to team-up with friends to do battle in King's Row with Tracer, Torbjorn, Reinhardt and Mercy.

Expect to hear more about Overwatch Uprising in the next week as Blizzard teases new skins and items.

Blizzard has confirmed that this event will return, giving players a chance to play it in case they missed out on the mission (as well as skins) during its first debut. A team of Doomfist, Moira, McCree, and Genji traveling around the sewers of King's Row (or somewhere entirely new) could be awesome. The event may be entirely different when it plays again.

Fans will want to keep an eye out for the official launch time on April 10, as Blizzard have not yet announced when their next event will go live.

The story behind the King's Row uprising, which was expanded upon in the "Uprising" digital comic, also showed a glimpse of what Overwatch was like during its heyday, touching on Tracer's recruitment and the "Blackwatch" division, led by Gabriel Reyes before he became Reaper.

The Combat Medic Ziegler, Tracer's Cadet Oxton skin, Talon Widowmaker, and the Blackwatch Genji were some of the most popular additions previous year.

"Drop into the action and play as one of the four charged with completing this critical objective". To see last year's items and which you have unlocked, head to the Uprising website. It looks like it'll be Blackwatch's turn to take center stage, in an event that takes place before last year's Uprising.
