Storm Rising is Overwatch’s latest in-game event, the 2019 iteration of the recurring Archives event.
While the primary focus of the Archives event is on the lore it introduces and the PvE content it offers, as with all in-game events it also introduces a selection of new cosmetic items.
The Storm Rising event offers a total of nine new skins, of which six are Legendary and three are Epic, along with three new Epic highlight intros.
Storm Rising will run between April 16 and May 6, during which time the new cosmetics will be available both in Archives loot boxes and for direct purchase with credits. Players wishing to pick up the new skins or highlight intros will have to do so before the event ends, or else wait until Archives returns next year.
Each Legendary skin from Storm Rising will cost 3000 credits to unlock outright, while the Epic skins and highlight intros will cost 750 credits each.
Here’s a look at what’s on offer in the Storm Rising event:
In addition to this year’s cosmetics, the items from previous Archives events – Uprising and Retribution – will also be available in Archives loot boxes or for direct purchase with credits. These, however, will be at the regular prices – 1000 for a Legendary skin, and 250 for an Epic skin or highlight intro.
