A French trailer for the upcoming Overwatch event (which we now know is called Insurrection) has been leaked as reported by PC Gamer. The leaked trailers have been floating around on YouTube, and here is the same one that PC Gamer is linking to on YouTube:
Mirrors of the trailer are widely available if this one gets taken down (Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Mirror 3 (w/ commentary by Stylosa)). The text in the trailer was translated on the /r/Overwatch subreddit thread about this leak. Here's the gist of it:
Soldier 76: Morrison here. London has been attacked. King's Row has fallen. We are on the edge of an open war. News voice: Hundreds are dead. Injured counts themselves by the thounsands. Soldier 76: Your time to play, Overwatch. Reinhardt: Lieutenant Wilhelm on duty! We're not going to let you down, commander! Mercy: We're going to save as many lives as possible! Reyes: Blackwatch agents are signaling presense of important fortifications: Null Sector controls the whole zone. Bjorn: Leave this to an expert. I've got a little surprise for them! Reyes: Intervention team, we're counting on you, and take care of the new recruit! Tracer: You can count on me, chief!The Insurrection event is scheduled to go live on April 11, 2017. The trailer reveals that it will run until May 1, 2017; everyone will have a solid three weeks to try to get their hands on these new goodies. Judging from context, it looks like we're going to have a four-player PvE event similar to Junkenstein's Revenge. Gameplay aside, of course the things that an awful lot of people care about is the new cosmetic loot - the trailer mentions over 100 new items! - so I've put together a gallery that shows most of it:

The Insurrection event was originally teased in early April, and an image was released early on the Xbox dashboard that showed four new possible skins for Torbjörn, Reinhardt, Tracer, and Mercy. Now those four skins have all but been confirmed. The Insurrection event for Overwatch is coming together rather nicely, and while the trailer has revealed a lot of the upcoming content there are still likely some items that weren't shown. The Insurrection event is set to begin on April 11, 2017.
What do you think of the new skins and loot that are coming to Overwatch for the Insurrection event? Do you hope that PvE events like this and Junkenstein's Revenge are available year-round or would you prefer that they are seasonal? What's your favorite new skin and spray that we've seen so far?
