All skins from previous editions of the event are expected to return, giving players a new chance to get them. If it’s like last year, there will be no new story missions, and it will focus on the three missions already available in past iterations of the event.
Each one focuses on a group of characters. Uprising focuses on Mercy, Reinhardt, Torbjorn, and Tracer, being Tracer’s first mission on the Overwatch team according to the game’s narrative. Retribution focuses on Gabriel Reyes (later Reaper), McCree, Genji, and Moira, showing the events in which the Blackwatch group revealed itself to the world, and led to the dissolution of Overwatch.
By last, Storm rising He refocuses on Tracer, some time after his first mission, joining Genji, Mercy and Winson in Cuba, fighting against the Talon organization. These missions give us an idea of what the story missions that Overwatch 2 will have like, although we will have to wait until 2022 to play them …
Remember, the Overwatch Archives event will take place April 6-21, 2021.
