Overwatch’s King’s Row Uprising Is A Playable Event

Game director Jeff Kaplan has confirmed that Overwatch’s King’s Row Uprising is a playable event. He mentions that the event is tied into the game and looks more at the past of the fictional world.

In an interview with PCGamesN (via PVP Live), Kaplan revealed that the recent Twitter tease is about an upcoming playable event that isn’t tied to any real-world celebration. Transpiring solely in the game’s universe, this event will look into the past of Overwatch. 

“We’ve heard the call that a lot of players want a non-real-world-tied event, meaning they want some sort of set event in the Overwatch world,” Kaplan said. “The event is going to be something—when players see the event and play the event, I think they’ll see that we’ve been listening to their feedback.”

“We’ve been hearing a lot of desire for more story, people want to know more about the story of Overwatch, they want to know more about the past of Overwatch. I think they want to know more about what’s going on between omnics and humans in this world and how did we get there. I think a lot of that will be answered for them.”

Kaplan also teased a new skin. “I think Widowmaker players who have wanted a skin might be very happy very soon.”

Overwatch is out now for the PlayStaion 4, Xbox One, and PC.
