Archives is all about exploring the past of the Overwatch team and its members. Previous events have shed light on the lighter and darker times the organization has gone through while, additionally, allowing us more time inside the minds of our favorite heroes. If you're a player who thrives of stories and lore-building, then Archives is an event you won't want to miss. Who knows what history will be uncovered this year?

As stated before, Archives gives more light to our heroes and what happened in their past. This includes creating skins that reflect who they might have been and how they felt at that time. This can range anywhere from Tracer's Cadet uniform to the slowly growing legion of characters wearing Talon uniforms. The art team does a great job with this every year and its exciting to see who will get picked to be in the spotlight.
