Overwatch’s latest archives event, Storm Rising, is finally available. The season event kicks off today until May 6, bringing a new PVE mode and a host of new skins.

As with most Overwatch events, players will be able to take part in a host of seasonal modes and buy event-exclusive loot boxes to try and find one of the many new skins on offer. Loot boxes will also contain skins from past events though, so hope you’re lucky when opening one.

On top of the skins, players will be able to take part in a new PVE mission that brings together Tracer, Winston, Mercy, and Genji as they peruse Talon’s Maximilien through the streets of Havana, Cuba.

The previous archives events are also potentially set to return to the game as well, giving players another chance to relive past missions of the Overwatch crew, including last year’s Blackwatch event.

You only have a few short weeks to enjoy everything on offer before the PVE events return to the vault until next year, so be sure to enjoy everything you can before it’s too late.
