Overwatch Releases a New Lore Video Prior to Storm Rising Event

Blizzard has released a new lore video today showing off the story of Storm Rising before the event takes place in Overwatch this Friday. Based on what we're seeing in the video, it looks like this is no longer part of the official Overwatch Archives, as in, we're not going back in time. This is a four-player mission featuring Tracer, Marcy, Genji, and Winston in their current gear, meaning we're most likely getting some progression to the story in their current timeline where people like Reaper and Widowmaker are hunting down items for Talon. This one appears to be them going after a specific underworld figurehead, but we don't have all the details beyond the fact you're fighting on the streets of Havana. Enjoy the action-packed video!
