New Overwatch comic fills in the Retribution event backstory

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

The mission takes players eight years into the past on a Blackwatch mission with Reaper, Moira, Genji, and McCree.

Mr. Kaplan came on stage wearing a Blackwatch shirt, introduced himself, and showed off the trailer relatively quickly.

To entice users to purchase the All-Access Overwatch League Pass, there will be a free trial for limited All-Access Pass features with the overhead maps, alternate camera angles, live stats, and player cams. It will include both King's Row Uprising and Overwatch Retribution along with a host of new cosmetics.

To further show off in chat, All-Access grants you a global chat badge, so you can rep the Overwatch League on Twitch no matter where you are. While nothing is confirmed yet, it seems likely that Retribution will be the Overwatch Archives' first new PvE mode, sharing the cast and plot of the comic - a mission to Italy to kidnap a top-level Talon operative named Antonio. An "All Heroes" mode will also be available, but it will be different compared to the story version of the game mode. 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. Overwatch: Retribution will be kicking off on 10th April and will run through 30th April. What moments from the Overwatch archives would you like to see Blizzard tackle in future events?

The Retribution event takes place on the upcoming Escort map, Rialto.

As always, the latest issue available to read online, free of charge.

You'd be forgiven for thinking the Overwatch League has fallen by the wayside recently.
