Watchpoint Radio #51: Uprising, Team Building, and Team Tilting

So much for staying quiet until the one year anniversary. Jaa is happy to be wrong about that, though. Blizzard surprised us with a teaser for their next playable event (we actually confirmed it after we had already recorded). King’s Row Uprising will quench the thirst of those who want more info on the Omnic Crisis and the Overwatch world. However, we don’t know what type of event it will be. Are we getting another horde mode? Maybe an objective based co-op map. We’ll see in a week.

That and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.
