The second player versus environment (PvE) offering from "Overwatch", "Uprising" is a step up from last year's "Junkenstein's Revenge" during the Halloween Terror event last year. As the latest seasonal event which started last April 11 and will run until May 1, "Overwatch Uprising" takes plays in King's Row and offers four game modes: Normal, Hard, Expert and Legendary.

As posted by Overwatch, the event on "Uprising" takes place seven years before the fall of Overwatch. Players will become part of a strike team composed of four Overwatch agents in an attempt to stop an omnic uprising in King's Row. A rogue group of omnics led by Null Sector is behind the uprising.

Players will get the option to choose from Tracer, Torbjörn, Reinhardt, or Mercy as their character in normal version of "Overwatch Uprising". In the all heroes version, you get the chance to choose any hero on the list.

While both the normal and hard modes can be an effective environment for newbies of the game, playing on the expert and legendary modes can be a little tricky. But more often, these modes just live up to its name, for experts and legends.

So who are the characters you may want to charge into King's Row side by side? Bear in mind that not all characters are created equally. This depends on the ability of the Hero, who the enemies are and where the game will take place. With "Overwatch Uprising", here are a few characters you want to choose as part of your team.

Omnics as such powerful monsters, thus, fighting them will be easier if you have another omnic by your side. According to PC Gamer, Bastion could be the beast on "Overwatch Uprising". Based from the initial gameplays, most successful legendary quests include Bastion on their lineup. But as always, the combination of defensive-minded characters Reinhardt and Orisa is the best tank partnership there is in "Overwatch".

Sombra's stealth and hacking abilities can prove beneficial when it comes to surprise attacks, leaving omnics dumbfounded for a couple of seconds before realizing they were attacked. Omnics are synonymous to great damage, but Zenyatta who is another omnic has ability to heal heroes in a large radius around him.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: A week before the launch of "Overwatch Uprising", a digital comic was released last April 5. For those who wanted to read the comic, you may visit Overwatch Uprising Comic.
