Overwatch has announced their new Overwatch Archives Challenge. This consists of weekly challenges that will run alongside the main event, with streamers and community personalities coming together to prove they have the best strike team in the entire world.


Streamers were given the chance to handpick their own squads for a chance to win an amazing collection of prizes to give to their viewers and supporters at the end of the event. Up for grabs for each streamer to give away are an MSI Gaming 27” curved gaming monitor, MSI gaming peripherals, a Genji statue and a selection of other pieces of gear, so it’s definitely worth cheering along for a chance to nab something special!

Each Wednesday a new challenge will be revealed, with the first of the challenges being a simple play-through of retribution’s story mode. 

The rules state that all runs must be played on Legendary and live-streamed or uploaded to Youtube with accompanying screenshots of their score to remain valid within the competition.

The official Overwatch blog has a comprehensive list of all streamers competing and their twitch channels – plus a weekly leader-board update – to make it easier to follow along.
