Blizzard Entertainment revealed Deadlock McCree as the fourth legendary skin ahead of the Overwatch Storm Rising event.

The event goes live on April 16, introducing a new story mode and a set of new cosmetics.

The skin resembles the sharpshooter from his early days, during his time in the Deadlock Gang. Fans got their first glimpse of the skin in the most recent Overwatch animated short titled “Reunion.” The short reveals the formerly close relationship between McCree and Ashe and briefly shares an old photo of the pair.

Deadlock McCree dresses the DPS hero in a black leather jacket with a “Route 66” badge on the collar. One of the jacket’s sleeves is cut off, and the cowboy sports the Deadlock Rebels’ logo on a yellow bandanna around his neck and on the back of his jacket.

As this year’s Archives event, Storm Rising will introduce a new story mode with a mission to pursue and extract Maximilien, one of Talon’s leading operatives, from his hideout in Cuba. Players choose from Mercy, Genji, Winston, and Tracer to team up and complete the task before time runs out.

Storm Rising goes live on April 16 and will run until May 6.
