Blizzard Entertainment booth at Gamescom 2009

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.

The initiative shows how the biggest video game companies are trying to adapt and evolve within the ever-changing, and highly lucrative, world of eSports. More than 160 Archives Loot Box items will be available to unlock during the event, including items from last year's Overwatch Uprising event along with 8 new Legendary skins. All of last year's Uprising event cosmetics will also return.As with Uprising, there will be a separate mode where you can choose from any of the heroes instead of just the aforementioned four. Filling in for last year's Uprising event, Retribution will take you eight years into the past as you join Blackwatch in attempting to capture a "high-ranking member of the Talon organisation".

The Retribution event will be taking place on a brand new map, located in Italy, named "Rialto".

Recurring PvE missions within Overwatch will now be known as "Overwatch Archives".
