As an event centered around discovering some of the backstories of its characters, Overwatch‘s Uprising event last year gave players the chance to see first-hand some of the missions that the team embarked on together during the Omnic Crisis, and now it will return next month with a new teaser in store of what to expect.

Blizzard Entertainment has released a new video to highlight the return of the Uprising event in Overwatch next month, which confirms that the event will run this year from April 10th – 30th, 2018.

The teaser itself gives a look at the return of the King’s Row Uprising event, which provides a PvE-focused mode for players against waves of armed Omnic forces, along with the skins that players can earn this time around which will include many from last year’s event.

In addition to the skins and PvE mode, the video also included a brief teaser at the end that this year’s iteration seems likely to include some new content, whether that is a new mode or other feature compared to last year’s take on the event.

Overwatch is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC – for a closer look at the upcoming Uprising event, you can check out the new teaser video from Blizzard below:
