Overwatch's next PvE mission is a Blackwatch strike in Italy

Share

Now from the 10th of April until the 30th, players will have a chance to play Overwatch Retribution, the second PvE story mission for the game. Blackwatch is supposed to be the secret covert ops division of Overwatch, but the trailer suggests that the mission ended in disaster and spelled the beginning of the end for Overwatch itself. Venice's map will be used, and we will see what actually happened that evening during the Blackwatch mission.

As players compete in matches-win or lose-they'll level up and earn Loot Boxes, each containing a combination of four items players can use to customize their heroes, including in-game credits and cosmetic goodies including skins, sprays, voice lines, and new animations. But, if you're a Twitch Prime member, you can get it for $19.99. Talon will be fielding snipers, assassins, heavy assaults, and a "bunch of other [units]" in the mission against you.

German court rejects extradition of former Catalan leader on rebellion charge
Spain's Supreme Court determined 25 Catalan leaders should be tried for rebellion, embezzlement or disobeying the state. However, the court disagreed Thursday, saying Puigdemont can't be extradited for rebellion.

In one game mode, players take on Retribution as the four named heroes. Like last year's Uprising Event which detailed backstory about some of the Overwatch characters, this year's event sounds like it will be somewhat the same but with different focal points in the Overwatch lore.

Unlike Uprising, Retribution won't reuse an existing map - Venice is an all-new creation. The Venice map will be a daytime Payload-type map in the regular rotation after testing on the PTR once the event is over.
