Hero Balance Updates
Within the new season for Overwatch 2, we addressed some feedback we received from the community to bring more hero balance to competitive play.
First up is adjusting the lethality of Sojourn’s Rail Gun. Players have found it challenging to reach the highest tiers of Competitive ranks if they do not have the same mechanical skills as Sojourn players. We will be encouraging players to make use of Sojourn’s high mobility for devastating close distance hits.
Another hero receiving some major changes is Doomfist. While the playstyle core will remain the same to his Hero identity, new updates will help Doomfist better support the team’s front line.
In addition, expect some changes across Ana, Bastion, Junker Queen, Kiriko, Mercy, and Symettra, which will be live as of today.
Classic, Fan Favorite Locales
Players can not only dive into the newest map, Shambali Monastery, but return to some past fan favorite maps and see other locations in a new light. Visit the picturesque town of Rialto or catch some fun rides at Blizzard World, the most epic place on earth. Oasis and Nepal now features different times of the day for players to battle in, while the Hollywood and Watchpoint: Gibraltar maps are rotated out.
New Greek Mythology Battle Pass and Battle for Olympus Mode
Gods and legends from Greek Mythology are the theme of Season 2. Play your way through the Battle Pass or upgrade to the Premium Battle Pass to get even more glorious mythological rewards such as the Legendary Poseidon Ramattra, Legendary Hades Pharah, and the all-new Mythic Zeus Junker Queen skin. This mythic skin includes new customizations, weapon models, voice lines, and special effects.
A variety of heroes will be instilled with god-like powers in our brand-new game mode, Battle for Olympus! Play the limited-time event starting from January 5 through January 19 and look out for new skins throughout the season that might give you an idea on what’s to come!
Limited-Time Events and Twitch Drops
Get ready for three limited-time events this season! On top of the Battle for Olympus, classic Winter Wonderland and Lunar New Year events will return with fan favorite modes with even more seasonal rewards to earn. You can earn new skins from each event just by playing the game and completing event challenges! Get the Epic Ice Queen Brigitte in Winter Wonderland, the Legendary Winged Victory Mercy in the Battle for Olympus, and the Legendary Kkachi Echo in Lunar New Year. Winter Wonderland will take place from December 13 to Jan 4 and you can experience Lunar New Year from Jan 17 until February 1!
Get your hands on even more Season 2 rewards by watching Overwatch 2 streamers who have enabled drops on Twitch. Look out for a Legendary Ramttra skin and many more Twitch drops this season.
We have released a new feature of Hero Challenges that you can take on to unlock heroes you have not yet earned. By selecting the Challenge of the Hero you want to unlock, you will be placed in the Practice Range so you can learn how to play the hero and ultimately overcome challenges that require winning Overwatch games.
If you are looking for a faster way to unlock the hero without participating in Hero Challenges, you can purchase them in the in-game store to get immediate access. For all Overwatch 1 owners, you can receive the three new Overwatch 2 heroes Sojourn, Junker Queen, and Kiriko just by logging into the game! This Hero bonus will end by the start of Season 3 so make sure to login before then.
