Blizzard has announced the next promotional event for Overwatch is live now, Uprising. The event turns back the clock and lets players relive the battles of the past. Explore the stories behind some of your favourite heroes, unlock pieces of the past with over 100 declassified Loot Box items, and suit up with friends to join Tracer on her very first mission as part of a brand-new cooperative brawl.
Starting today, all in-game Loot Boxes have been temporarily replaced with Overwatch: Uprising Loot Boxes. These special time capsules have been filled to the brim with mementos from the earlier eras of Overwatch—including Mercy’s “Combat Medic Ziegler” and Tracer’s “Cadet Oxton” skins, as well as Talon Widowmaker, Blackwatch Genji and McCree, and more!
As with past previous events, any Loot Boxes you earn or purchase will contain at least one skin, highlight intro, emote, spray, or player icon from the Overwatch: Uprising collection. While the contents of each Uprising Loot Box are random, you can also choose to unlock a variety of these cosmetic customisation options with credits in the Hero Gallery throughout the event's duration. Once you've unlocked an Overwatch: Uprising item, it will be yours forever, allowing you to use it all-year round. The collection will be re-encrypted on 2 May AEST/NZST when the event concludes, so be sure to browse the archives before it's too late!
