Blizzard has kicked off the newest entry in its Archive series of events for Overwatch, titled Storm Rising.

This latest event is live until May 6th and sees players taking on a mission to hunt down the Omnic Talon boss Maximilien as either Tracer, Genji, Winston, or Mercy. Players also have the chance to replay the Uprising and Retribution missions during the event. The former of which tells the story of Tracer’s first mission with Overwatch, while the latter lets players take control of Blackwatch as they attempt to capture a high-ranking member of the Talon organization.

Players can also earn more than 160 new cosmetic items during the event, including new skins for McCree, Soldier 76, Bastion, Junkrat, and more.

As well as this new event, Blizzard has brought back Overwatch‘s free trial until April 23rd. Free trial players have full access to all 30 heroes, including the recently released Baptiste, as well as all of the game’s 27 maps across a variety of modes, such as Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade. Players can level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock new cosmetics during the trial, and all progress made can be carried over to the full game.

Finally, throughout the rest of April, Overwatch‘s Standard Edition, Legendary Edition, and Digital Upgrade are available at a discount.
