Twitch Announces Overwatch League All-Access Pass

Twitch Announces Overwatch League All-Access Pass

Yesterday, at the opening of stage 3 of the "Overwatch" league, #Jeff Kaplan, lead designer of "Overwatch", made a guest appearance to announce a new mission coming in the event on April 10.

In one game mode, players take on Retribution as the four named heroes. The mission takes players eight years into the past on a Blackwatch mission with Reaper, Moira, Genji, and McCree. Of course, Retribution will also include new skins for the Blackwatch crew, as well as the usual collection of emotes, sprays, and miscellanea (there will be 60 new items in all).

The Retribution event runs from April 10 to 30, and will bring back last year's Uprising cosmetics as well as a pile of brand new legendary skins. Whatever it is that happens during the mission starts to change Gabriel Reyes from regular Overwatch operative to the dark edgelord Reaper that we all know him as.




Perhaps the biggest bonus for fans of the Overwatch League players will be the chance to submit questions to Match Day AMAs.

Moira will be getting a Blackwatch skin for the Overwatch Archives event set in the new Rialto map. What moments from the Overwatch archives would you like to see Blizzard tackle in future events? Most notably, he revealed that a daytime version of the map that features in Retribution will also be implemented as an Escort PVP map, although it will be appearing on the PTR before it reaches the live game.

You'd be forgiven for thinking the Overwatch League has fallen by the wayside recently. And seeing as a full year ago I co-wrote an article on PC Gamer saying "Blizzard could build an area in the game's Arcade section called the Overwatch Archives-a place to experience Overwatch's history", I am feeling pretty good about it.
