Overwatch Reveals New Event for Uprising in ‘Retribution’

Things are looking pretty dicey for the Blackwatch group in the latest Overwatch event. Along with the Uprising event you get to play from last year’s journal with Tracer, this year you get a brand-new mission with the whole Blackwatch crew that slightly ties into the new comic released this week. The mission, dubbed Retribution, will have you take on one of four roles: Reaper, Genji, Moira, or McCree, as you essentially go get revenge for an attack on the group. Sadly, it’s not what it appears to be — the entire mission turns out to be a trap to eliminate the four of you.

Its kind of cool to get a little bonus content into Blackwatch, even though they still really don’t go into detail as to what the group even does beyond “black ops” missions. You can tell the developers went all out to make this missions a challenge and give all of the characters a lot of time to do their thing. It’s also interesting that the mission is basically three DPS characters and one DPS/Healer with no Tank or solid support options. We wish all of you the best of luck as we will be teaming up with you on April 10th to take everyone down.
