Blizzard to redesign Overwatch's Uprising event, now Archives

Overwatch will relive past glories with Archives, more information coming soon.


Through a new development diary, Blizzard has detailed the return of Overwatch's Uprising event. It will be available from April 10th, and will last until April 30th. In addition, some novelties have been anticipated: this year, the event will be expanded under the name Overwatch Archives, destined to relive not only Tracer's first King's Row mission but other historical events from the franchise's background.


Apart from that, the details are rather scarce. Jeff Kaplan, director of the game, assures that we will see all old skins in addition to completely new ones, and at least one of them will be from one of the Shimada brothers (Hanzo and Genji). Tomorrow, new information will be shared about it in a special broadcast during the Overwatch League.



From Reddit, there is speculation with the arrival of an additional mission apart from Uprising under the name Retribution, although Blizzard has not yet formally commented on it.
