Overwatch Retribution PvE mission starts next week

The next Overwatch Archives PvE mission, titled Retribution, will take us back eight years to relive one of Blackwatch’s missions.

The mission takes place in Venice, Italy in a new Overwatch map called Rialto. Retribution is a PvE event where you play as Genji, Moira, McCree, and Reaper in a mission to retrieve a high-ranking Talon member.

As you’ve probably gleaned from the Retribution comic, you’ll be fighting against Talon forces and unlocking loot boxes filled with 60 new items. All of last year’s Uprising cosmetics will also return.

And, just like with last year’s Uprising, there will be a separate mode where you can pick any heroes you like, not just the story-related four. The event kicks off April 10 and will go on until April 30.

In case you’re wondering, Rialto is joining the PvP map roster at some point. Finally, Uprising will too be playable during the same period.
