PlayStation France was a little bit over eager when it comes to the planned Overwatch announcement on the 12th April, although the trailer mentions the event starts on the 11th April. The Overwatch: Insurrection event trailer was pushed live on the platform holders French YouTube channel and was quickly taken down again. Not quick enough though, as we know, when something goes live on the Internet, hiding it again is almost impossible.
The trailer shows London being attacked 7 years ago and a Kings Row in ruins as the robot uprising takes hold.
The trailer talks about the timed event and Tracer’s first mission., below is the translation from French to English:
For a limited time, we go back and offer to relive one of the key moments in the history of Overwatch. Rally your friends and accompany Tracer in her first mission during the King’s Row insurrection, our new co-operative shock or discover the origins of some of your favourite heroes with more than 100 new objects for Overwatch: Insurrection including models, Entries, emotes, tags, etc! Overwatch archives have been declassified, but this will only last until 1st May.
The trailer also shows off the original looks of the Overwatch heroes as well as Blackwatch versions of McCree and Genji and Talon version of Widowmaker.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
