Overwatch players can participate in the next Uprising event starting April 10

It looks like it'll be Blackwatch's turn to take center stage, in an event that takes place before last year's Uprising.

Most importantly, we wonder what new cosmetics Blizzard will give us during this new event.

As promised, Blizzard plans to bring back a revamped version of Overwatch's Uprising event.

The Uprising mode is a four-player co-op mission where players can team up and fight wave after wave of Omnic robots during Tracer's first mission as an Overwatch agent.

Blizzard has announced a new series of events dedicated towards Overwatch fans, and especially cosplayers. That the event was revealed with such little fanfare makes clear that a larger reveal is still planned, likely to cover the event's special game mode and any new lore that comes with it.

King's Row Uprising will begin on April 10, according to a teaser post that Blizzard dropped on Overwatch's social media. "File 00382 - King's Row Uprising" appears to change to what fans believe says "File 00274 - Blackwatch Archives".

We opined shortly after it went live that Uprising was "the best case for an Overwatch campaign yet", because "it's a story that genuinely matters". The security clearance is tagged as confidential, but with a declassified date of April 10. So if a PvE Brawl similar to the one found a year ago is in there, the chances are that these will be the four heroes to choose from. Blackwatch was the covert operations arm of Overwatch before it was shut down and suspended for suspicious activity. 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.
