For a predominantly head to head multiplayer game, Blizzard have done a pretty good job of fleshing out the characters and creating a world for people to invest in. Part of that has been with time-limited co-op events, collected under the Overwatch Archives name, and it’s coming back for a third time with Overwatch Storm Rising, starting next week on 16th April.

The new mission canonically sees hero characters Tracer, Genji, Winston, and Mercy as the Overwatch heroes chasing after the Omnic Talon boss, Maximilien, as a huge storm rolls into his Cuban lair. You’ll also be able to return to the first two missions, Uprising and Retribution, for a little added variety as you chase after the 160 new cosmetic items to earn.
