Blizzard has announced that the Storm Rising limited-time event will be coming to Overwatch next week.
The event will run from April 16th through May 6th and is similar to the Uprising and Retribution PvE events. These story-based events see players reliving a past mission as one of four Overwatch characters. The Uprising event told the story of Tracer’s first mission with Overwatch, while the Retribution event let players take control of Blackwatch as they attempted to capture a high-ranking member of the Talon organization.
According to the video below, the Storm Rising event tasks players with apprehending Doomfist’s accountant Maximilian. Tracer will be leading the mission, with Mercy, Winston, and Genji backing her up.

The previous two events also introduced a number of new cosmetic items for players to earn, so expect the same with Storm Rising.
Overwatch is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
