The Omnics of Overwatch are about to rise up once more, as the hero shooter recently teased the return of last year’s PvE event—potentially with something new.
A short video showing a screen of “Overwatch Missions Archives” was recently posted to the Overwatch Twitter account. The file name listed on the archive reads “King’s Row Uprising”, which was the setting of last year’s Uprising event that gave fans their first look at Overwatch co-op content.
Eagle-eyed Overwatch fans have noticed that the teaser video is more or less the same as last year’s version, with one notable change. A flicker in the video briefly changes some of the text, replacing “7 years ago” with “8 years ago” and adding some text and graphics that appear to reference Blackwatch, the covert ops division inside Overwatch. Could we be seeing all new PvE content in addition to the returning mission?
While the tweet below is just a teaser, the full mission files will “unlock” on April 10th.
Initiating archive declassification…

Overwatch has been kicking its updates into high gear lately. Shortly following the release of the game’s 27th hero, Brigitte, numerous hero rebalances came to the game’s public test region. Additionally, a new feature is being tested that will allow players to avoid unsavory teammates. There is no set launch date for the hero changes and matchmaking feature, but they are expected to drop in the next week or two.
