Overwatch League Getting "All-Access Pass"

Hanzomain Overwatch's next PvE mission is a Blackwatch strike in Italy
June Sullivan | 06 April, 2018, 02:10

Overwatch: Retribution will be kicking off on 10th April and will run through 30th April. Other exclusive access includes having the ability to tune into the weekly video series "Behind the Screens" where a player will show you their point of view for a match from the previous week. Overwatch's Uprising and Retribution events begin on all platforms April 10.

Play a part in history in Overwatch Archives, a seasonal event that brings back last year's Uprising mission and introduces a new PvE co-op mission, Retribution.

Retribution takes place on a brand new map called Realto in Venice.

While Overwatch is primarily a PvP focused shooter, over the last couple of years the folks at Blizzard have dabbled into story telling, fleshing out the lore and backstories for different characters.

Play as Reaper, McCree, Genji or Moira as you fight against a whole mess of Talon soldiers. From what we can gather, whatever mission the Blackwatch team went on didn't go exactly as planned. Kaplan did promise during his announcement that Reaper in particular would be getting a new skin that shows the hero as he was during the super soldier experiment, when Reaper went by the name of Soldier 24. What moments from the Overwatch archives would you like to see Blizzard tackle in future events?

Additional information was provided by Jeff Kaplan at the Overwatch League.

Overwatch Archives is the 2018 edition of 2017's "Uprising" event, which allowed players to play through Tracer's first mission with Overwatch as they attempted to quell an omnic uprising in King's Row.

The Overwatch League All-Access Pass is available for Dollars $29.99 for the inaugural season.
