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

But it also comes with a list of new tech changes that gamers may not notice right away.

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

This includes adding new PC features, removing bugs, and adding new competitive content.

Details about the new Archives event released by Blizzard reads: “Find out how heroes have made history as we go through the Overwatch archives again from April 6 – April 27.

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

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

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