The newest Overwatch event, Storm Rising, kicks off today. This adds a new ‘Archives’ mission to the game, along with the return of the previous two co-op adventures. Archives is the most anticipated event of the year, and so Blizzard is sweetening the pot with a free trial and a sale on Overwatch.
