New cosmetics and new PvE Brawl focused on Blackwatch currently available.
Blizzard Entertainment’s latest seasonal event for Overwatch, dubbed Archives, is now live. This is a fancier name for the lore-based events, usually focused on PvE. King’s Row Uprising from last year returns but the real attraction is the new event Retribution. Check out the trailer below.
Taking place in the past Retribution follows Blackwatch, the covert black ops section of Overwatch consisting of Gabriel Reyes, McCree, Genji and Moira. The plan is to capture a high-ranking Talon official but things quickly go sideways. The group has to make their escape, battling a small army of Talon soldiers throughout.
Along with the new enemies and presumably new mechanics, there are also new cosmetic items added to the loot box pool. These include skins for Sombra, Winston, Doomfist, Moira, Hanzo, Reaper, Mei and Lucio. Other cosmetics like highlight intros, emotes, sprays and whatnot. The event is currently live and will end on April 30th so hurry up and grind those loot boxes.
