Uprising, the season event, will be coming to Overwatch again on April 10th!
The Uprising event tells of a pivotal event in the game's backstory, when London, more specifically King's Row, was attacked by the Omnic terrorist organization Null Sector. You may also remember that Moira's origin video showed her in a Blackwatch uniform too so perhaps she'll be receiving a new skin. It primarily showcases the returning Brawl mode and skins from previous year; the bulk of the brief video is essentially promising that players will have another shot at all of that. In the teaser post, which is an animated image, there is a moment where the text within the image changes.
In addition, the name of the event may be changed to Blackwatch Archives or simply Archives.More news: Astros open with 4-1 win over Rangers

The game's official Twitter page tweeted a teaser of its return and #Blizzard Entertainment streamed a new trailer featuring event-only skins and missions.
If the focus for Uprising is on Blackwatch, and if it takes place seven years ago instead of eight, this might be one of the last missions for the covert ops team.
Most importantly, we wonder what new cosmetics Blizzard will give us during this new event.
The Overwatch community is already speculating on what this event is going to contain, which parts of the Overwatch lore will be included and which characters will be playable during this event. 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.
