If you haven’t checked it out already, you can watch the official trailer for the Overwatch Archives 2021 Event below. Then once you’ve done that, we’ve got images of the brand new skins coming to the game.

Overwatch Archives Event 2021

The Archives Event in Overwatch is back for 2021. Players can experience story-driven co-op missions from pivotal moments in Overwatch history in this Archives Event.

Players will also be able to earn special Archives Loot Boxes during the event. These special Loot Boxes will contain skins, intros, emotes, and sprays, all of which are inspired by moments from Overwatch’s past.

It’s not all just about the Loot Boxes though, players will also be able to complete special Challenge Missions for rewards.

Mousquetaire Widowmaker

Overwatch officially revealed the first skin for the Archives 2021 Event and it’s one for the Window players. The new cosmetic for Widowmaker is officially called the Mousquetaire Widowmaker, and turns her into a Musketeer Soldier from the 17th and 18th century.

The new skin is likely to be Legendary, meaning it will cost players 3000 coins to purchase if they don’t grab it from one of the Loot Boxes.

You can get a much better look at the new Widowmaker skin in the official teaser trailer from Overwatch below.

Bushi Genji

The second skin that was revealed by Overwatch for the new Archives event is the Bushi Genji skin.

The new cosmetic skin for Genji turns him into a Japense Samurai. Hence why the name of the skin is “Bushi”, as this translates to “Warrior” in Japanese.

This looks to be by far one of the best cosmetic skins Genji has received. You can get a closer look at the new skin in the official teaser trailer below.

That’s all the Overwatch Archives 2021 Skins that have been officially confirmed so far, but there’s likely to be many more up for grabs when the event kicks off.

Soldier: 1776 Soldier: 76
