Overwatch's latest seasonal event has arrived: Overwatch Uprising. The event, which runs from April 11 through May 1, dives into the history of Overwatch. 

Uprising tells the story of roughly seven years ago on the Overwatch timeline, when an Overwatch strike team intervenes after King's Row has been taken over by an Omnic insurgency known as Null Sector. 

In addition to a new four-player PvE brawl featuring Reinhardt, Tracer, Mercy, and Torbjörn, the event brings with it a handful new character skins alongside a slew of new highlight intros, victory poses, sprays, and other cosmetics. 

See some of the new stuff highlighted in the video above, or in the screenshots below:
