Overwatch Archives 2020 event is rapidly approaching as we near the end of the month. Though there isn't a lot of new information about the event, players are still excited about all the rewards to come this year.
Here are the three most important details to know for the 2020 Overwatch Archives.
Overwatch Archives 2020: 3 Things to Know About the Seasonal Event
1. No New Mission
Jeff Kaplan revealed that, most likely due to the sheer amount of work surrounding Overwatch 2, there will be no new mission mode for this year's Overwatch Archives event. Old modes may still be available to play and earn rewards this year. This is a bit of a disappointment. However, it's probably in the best interests for both games and the development team. The anniversary event immediately follows Archives, as well, so it's likely Blizzard is attempting to avoid burning out their team.
2. Earn Past Seasonal Rewards
As always, Overwatch Archives provides the chance to earn previous seasonal rewards that players may not have had a chance to get. This means that if you're missing your favorite holiday skin or are trying to complete the set, you may just find what you're looking for in an Archives loot box. All the more reason to participate before the anniversary event in the weeks following.
3. New Seasonal Rewards
Despite Kaplan's announcement of no new mission, it appears that this is the only aspect affected. Players can still expect new seasonal rewards regarding Archives to appear in loot boxes. It's likely that these rewards will keep in the theme of Overwatch history. What history that will be is still unconfirmed.
