|“||Welcome to...the Underworld.
Built by omnics from scratch.
|~ Iggy and Tracer|
The Underworld is an omnic city located in London, located beneath the surface of King's Row. It was built from scraps. Currently, most of London's omnic population lives in the Underworld, as it's safer for most of them. However, the omnics there have to steal pieces of technology to survive, as many vendors refuse to sell their required technology to omnics within London. However, in the period after Overwatch was disbanded, the Underworld's grid was failing.
Lena Oxton, who'd met Iggy, attempted to bring technology into the Underworld to help fix its grid. However, this generated some ire from Kace and his gang (per their anti-human stance), and getting her hands on the required technology was difficult. The grid suffered another blackout, and while Oxton was able to provide a regulator, it was of little use. The grid needed a regulator, as without one, it would just keep failing. Unfortunately, there was no transformer that the omnics could acquire that would work with their technology legally.
Currently, some people want to take out the omnics of King's Row with an EMP device. The device was attempted to be transported into the Underworld for detonation.
The Underworld appears in the King's Row game map. It represents the last stage of the escort attempt by the attacking side.
