Overwatch artwork from the Retribution comic starring Genji, Moira, McCree and Reaper

After teasing it's reveal for a few days now, Blizzard has finally announced that Overwatch's April 10th update will bring with it last year's Uprising PvE mission, as well as a brand new one - Retribution. As people have successfully predicted, Retribution will have us play as the clandestine Blackwatch team (Genji, McCree, Reaper and Moira) in a mission that went so wrong it started Overwatch's downfall.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It's not exactly a very long video, but it sure an exciting one! Have a look:

As for the map itself, Rialto, I'm glad to announce that it will be joining Overwatch's ever-growing collection as a brand new Payload (Escort) map. The details are still in short supply, but you can expect it to arrive onto the PTR in very near future.

Besides the new game mode and map, Overwatch's April 10th update will also bring back more than 100 items from the previous event, as well as add 60 new ones. The full list has not been revealed just yet, but what I can tell you is that we'll be getting a new Moira skin (as seen in the video), a new Reaper skin from his super-soldier days, as well as a new legendary skin for "our favorite Shimada brother".

[Update]: Three additional legendary skins have been revealed: Talon Doomfist, Talon Sombra and Scion Hanzo.

The final thing worth mentioning is that Blizzard recently released a new comic detailing the events leading up to the Venice mission. Much like the video above it's not very long, but it does have some interesting lore details, so I'd definitely recommend checking it out. You can find the comic over here. Enjoy!
