Revisit the Past

Experience story-driven co-op missions from pivotal moments in Overwatch history with Overwatch Archives. While the event is active, earn Archives Loot Boxes containing skins, highlight intros, emotes, and sprays inspired by moments from Overwatch’s past.


Take Control of Blackwatch

After the paramilitary organization known as Talon launches an attack on an Overwatch facility, the peacekeeping force is unable to respond. But Blackwatch, Overwatch’s secretive strike force, plays by its own rules. Travel eight years into the past and join Blackwatch as they seek to capture a high-ranking member of the Talon organization. Fight in the streets of Venice as Genji, Moira, McCree, or Reyes (later known as Reaper) to complete the mission in Story Mode. In All Heroes Mode, bring the hero of your choice into the field.

Location: Venice

The notorious arms smuggler Antonio operates out of a mansion nestled among the scenic canals of Venice, Italy.

Celebrate the Overwatch Legacy

The first time you complete the mission, you’ll earn an Archives Loot Box, with a chance to unlock skins from Overwatch’s past. Archives Loot Boxes are also available to purchase throughout the event.
