Today’s new Overwatch Archives event comes complete with new skins to unlock and returning missions and challenges.

But it also comes with a list of new technical changes that gamers might not spot straight away.

While the returning Archives Loot Boxes will be the main draw, developers Blizzard have also made some interesting background tweaks.

This includes adding new PC features, as well as removing bugs and adding new Competitive content.

Details on the new Archives Event released by Blizzard reads: “Find out how heroes made history as we take another trip through the Overwatch Archives from April 6 – April 27.

“Dive into story-driven co-op missions from pivotal moments in the past, test your mettle against new deadly new Challenge Mission modifiers, and earn historically-inspired loot along the way.”

There are no new missions to unlock play with Archives in 2021, but gamers can enjoy past content.

Meanwhile, here are the official patch notes for today’s new Overwatch update:
