Blizzard has started teasing its next limited-time event for Overwatch, called Storm Rising. On April 7, a clipping from the fictional newspaper Havana Sun was posted on Overwatch’s main website. Blizzard followed up the next day with a tweet detailing classified Overwatch information–both revealing the story for Storm Rising and possibly teasing a new playable hero called Sojourn. Said tweet can be seen below.
Blizzard is at it again and has recently teased a new limited-time event for Overwatch called Storm Rising and a possible new hero as well. The latest tease comes in the form of a clipping from the fictional newspaper called Havana Sun which was posted on Overwatch’s main site. After the clipping, a new tweet was posted the other day which detailed Storm Rising along with a possible new hero reveal.
The clipping details the unknown corporate takeover of Don Rumbotico which is a popular distillery but like most popular businesses, its past is not clean. The founders eventually had to sell the business in severe loss because they were unable to continue their work in peace after they refused to sell the distillery to an anonymous financial group.
There are also chances that a brand new map may arrive in the game which is set in Havana however there is no confirmed word on it and it may be a hunch. Fans have also suggested that the mysterious corporation behind the distillery events could be Talon because they are Overwatch’s bad guys’ organization.
Blizzard will reveal more information about the new event in the coming days as well as about the new character or map if they are indeed coming with the update. We will keep you updated with more updates so keep checking back. The chances of a new hero are pretty slim because Overwatch recently received Baptiste as a new hero.
What’s most compelling is the introduction of Sojourn, as she’s never been mentioned before but she sounds like someone who possesses great authority either within or over Overwatch. Whether she’s an upcoming playable hero remains to be seen, but it sounds like she’ll play a substantial role in the upcoming limited-time event.
Overwatch is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
