Apr 10 - May 01
Archives is a lore-based seasonal event in Overwatch. Like Halloween Terror, the event involves a unique PvE game mode, in which a single team of players must work to defeat large waves of AI-controlled bots. These PvE game modes explore key events in Overwatch's history, which take place in reskins of King's Row and Rialto depending on the brawl.
The event includes special achievements and a limited series of items, which could be earned through special Loot Boxes or unlocked through Hero Gallery. All event-exclusive content became unobtainable once the event ended.
Two special comics, Uprising (2017) and Retribution (2018), were released as part of the event's promotion
