Overwatch Uprising skins revealed

Overwatch Uprising skins revealed

Yesterday, it was believed the mode was to be called Insurrection following the leak of the event's trailer on the PlayStation France YouTube channel.

"The two-minute video featured the original 'Overwatch" collective consisting of Reinhardt, Torbjorn, Mercy, and Tracer.

As is typical of most Overwatch updates, new skins were leaked on X-Box Live, with fans of the game grabbing the new images before Microsoft can delete them off the dashboard. The event is also introducing a new Survival-based game mode. Blizzard started teasing a new event for the game last week when the game developer announced that new details would be released on April 11th 2017.

"Rally your friends and accompany Tracer in her first mission during the King's Row insurrection".

The event will pit a team of four players against waves of computer-controlled Omnic enemies on a modified version of the King's Row map.

At the end of the trailer, we can see a robot that seems to look like Orissa from the gun that it has but is seems far too aggressive.

Blizzard has been promising to make a huge announcement this week pertaining to a new event in Overwatch. One of particular note is D.Va's new "Selfie" highlight intro, which involves the mech pilot snapping a picture while her mech self destructs. While that wish was not obviously granted, it appears that Blizzard has listened to the positive feedback to the game mode and has re-released it in Insurrection.

You've seen the skins and the videos, now you can have a look at screenshots and some of the fun items included in the Overwatch: Uprising event.

"Drop into the action and play as one of the four charged with completing this critical objective", the description reads. And while you may get online, you'll likely notice some missing modes and you may still get disconnected at any moment.
