Uprising was a lore-based seasonal event in Overwatch that started on April 11, 2017, and ended on May 2, 2017. The event included a new lore-based co-op brawl mode that takes place in a modified version of King's Row.

The event also contained a destroyed reskin of King's Row, special achievements and a limited series of items, which could be earned through special Loot Boxes, and unlocked through Hero Gallery. All event-exclusive content became unobtainable once the event ended.

A special comic, Uprising, was released as a part of this event's promotion.


Uprising Menu Torbjorn

Torbjörn played an important part in Overwatch's plan to defeat Null Sector, as his bomb is the plan's centerpiece

Uprising took place near the end of Overwatch as an organization. It was an Overwatch mission tasked to defeat the Null Sector uprising in King's Row. After Commander Jack Morrison's proposal of an Overwatch strike team was shut down by the British Prime Minister, he went against it and sent Tracer, Torbjörn, Reinhardt, and Mercy on to fight the Null Sector omnics against the orders. It was also Tracer's first mission after she has been transferred to field combat training. The team fought through the city, shutting down anti-air turrets, delivered a bomb to the hideout and defeated the Null Sector omnics.

Uprising is an Arcade game mode exclusive to the event. This special brawl takes place on a modified version of King's Row. Similar to Junkenstein's Revenge, a team of 4 players complete objectives while fighting off hordes of AI-controlled enemies in true PvE fashion. There are 4 difficulties available: Normal, Hard, Expert, and Legendary.

In the normal version, players choose between Tracer, Torbjörn, Reinhardt, and Mercy, while in the All Heroes version, any hero can be chosen, with the hero stacking rule forbidden.
