It will soon be time for another event, Overwatch players.

Blizzard is teasing the next Overwatch Uprising event which kicks off on Tuesday, April 10.

The tease was posted on Twitter along with a video clip.

So, expect to once again fight robots during the King’s Row Omnic Uprising 

Uprising takes place in the past, and last year’s event focused on Tracer’s first mission as a member of Overwatch team.

According to Overwatch lore, the Omnic terrorist group Null Sector started an uprising in the posh King’s Row area of London.The British government denied Overwatch access to the area during the crisis, but Blackwatch agent Jesse McCree was already in the area gathering intelligence on Null Sector.

Fed up with being told not to intervene, Overwatch’s commander disobeyed orders by dispatching agents Tracer, Mercy, Reinhardt, and Torbjörn into the heart of the uprising.

The 2017 Uprising event included a four-player PvE Brawl mode featuring Reinhardt, Tracer, Torbjorn, or Mercy in a wave-based, survival mode against Omnic robots.

Like last year, expect over 100 cosmetic items to be available, which means there will be new skins, emotes, intros, sprays and other fun things to unlock for Overwatch.

You can look over what was included in last year’s Uprising event through the Overwatch website.
