Overwatch’s Archives event has returned with a new mode named Storm Rising. The PvE mode sees Tracer, Genji, Winston, and Mercy travel to Cuba, and it’s live now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Blizzard’s description of the mode states: “The clock is ticking as Tracer, Genji, Winston, and Mercy travel to Cuba to head off a stormfront and chase down the Omnic Talon boss Maximilien in the all-new Overwatch Archives replayable mission, Storm Rising.”
In addition, the Archives event’s previous modes, Uprising and Retribution, are back for a limited time, while more than 160 new cosmetics are available in total. The pair of modes, along with Storm Rising, are available until May 6.
Separate to the limited-time event, Overwatch is currently free-to-play through April 23. The game’s “full roster of 30 heroes is playable,” Blizzard states, and that includes the latest character, Baptiste. You’ll keep your progress if you then decide to purchase the full game, which is on sale for up to 51% off until Monday, April 29.
