Overwatch - or what is left of it - is at war with the Gods of Oasis. Russia is in a parallel war with itself, Katya Volskaya's government against the popular uprising led by the Aleksandra Zaryanova, the Goddess of Russia.

But now, it is spring - a slippery thing, in Russia, but still inevitable - and the time for waiting is over.
