Everything new in Overwatch 2 Season 3 update
Overwatch 2 Season 3 is on the way, bringing with it various new content, including a new skin, a new map, and more as shown in the trailer.
Blizzard recently released the trailer for the upcoming Season 3, which launches on February 7, 2023. Not only that, but they also released the roadmap for the whole season.
There will be a new mythic skin called Amaterasu Kiriko. Based on the previous trailer, it will have three color schemes based on Amaterasu, Susanoo, and Tsukuyomi. Other themed skins are also available for Moira, Reaper, and Junkrat will also be available to unlock through the attle pass, with skins for D.Va, Zenyatta, Genji, Mei, and Ashe (and BOB) available through the in-game shop.
Overwatch 2 will get its first crossover collaboration, as part of the game’s third season. The game will add new cosmetics inspired by One Punch Man, the superhero manga about a bored hero who can defeat his enemies with a single punch. The first content to come from that collab is a skin for Doomfist inspired by the star of One Punch Man, Saitama.
Antarctic Peninsula will reveal more about what Mei and her fellow scientists were doing on the planet’s southern tip. One of the points features the Overwatch icebreaker ship that was sent to rescue them. You’ll find penguins and a fishing hole on the map too.
Overwatch 2 is also getting its first dating sim, Loverwatch, which will be playable in a browser outside of the game. Completing the dating sim will unlock a new highlight intro for Hanzo. Hanzo will also be the star of a new 4v4 Valentine’s Day-themed event.
Loverwatch will be available to play from Feb. 13-28, and the Hanzo 4v4 mode will be available in-game Feb. 14-28. PachiMarchi launches March 21, and will include a new limited-time Kill Confirmed game mode, plus some cosmetic rewards: an epic skin, six PachiMarchi player icons, a weapon charm, and name card. Players can claim a PachiMarchi Roadhog player icon by logging in during the event, and complete themed challenges to earn the Epic-tier Pachimari Roadhog skin before the event ends on April 4.
Overwatch 2 is now available on PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows.
