The next limited-time event for Overwatch was announced on Twitter. The name of the event itself is Storm Rising.
The Twitter post says that the date for release is April 16th and runs to May 6th.
The video in the post shows Sojourn, a former Overwatch member, sending a message to Jack Morrison. The message says that she’s assigned Tracer to lead a team of four with Mercy, Winston, and Genji as the other members. They’re tasked with finding and capturing the Omnic named Maximilien, Doomfist’s accountant. If you’re familiar with the lore of Overwatch then you’ll recognize who Maximilien is since he’s been in the comics but not the game itself.
You can watch the video before through Twitter. Let us know in the comments what you think about the event so far.
