The default mode of Uprising, the latest PvE event currently underway in Overwatch, gets more conversational dialogue added as you win more matches according to a post from the game’s lead writer Michael Chu on the game’s official forums.
Uprising is a four-player PvE event that features four Overwatch team members deploying to King’s Row to combat the Omnic extremist (or terrorist, depending on who you ask) group Null Sector. Set seven years prior to the game’s current timeline, it features two distinct modes each with four difficulty settings. The standard mode has Torbjörn, Mercy, Reinhardt, and Tracer decked-out in Overwatch combat gear deploying to the section of London via the Underground. An alternate “All heroes” mode allows players to select from any of the game’s characters, but the default mode features special in-game conversations between the characters.
As you win successive games of Uprising, new conversations will take place in successive playthroughs. Mr. Chu stated that wins in All Heroes mode may count towards this hidden statistic but he can’t be certain and the new lines only take place in the standard mode.
Speaking of new dialogue, a fun little new voice line was added to the game proper in the latest patch: when Lúcio is nano-boosted by Ana, he has a rare chance of saying “Boostio!” in an exaggerated fashion. The new voice line was discussed on /r/Overwatch, and you can see it in action in this Twitch Clip from a stream by aimbotcalvin. (Be advised, the clip is a bit loud.)
The Uprising event in Overwatch will be running until sometime on May 1, 2017. You can check out the latest skins in our quick overview of the event, and if you need some tips on how to win you might want to check out our gameplay guide.
