Blizzard Unveils Roadmap and Trailer for Overwatch 2’s Season 3
Activision Blizzard is keeping Overwatch 2 up-to-date by adding new content, cosmetics, and more, and they have just released the Season 3 roadmap along with a trailer. Just like the original Overwatch, Overwatch 2 has undergone growth since its launch and it will carry on with the Season 3 upgrades outlined in the recent roadmap.
The Overwatch team has revealed a few things coming to Overwatch 2 during Season 3, such as a special event and collaboration, as well as the much-awaited Antarctica Peninsula map. Season 2 of Overwatch 2 persuaded some players to come back to the game with its various features, including skins, the Shambali Monastery map, and more, which will remain available in Season 3. Just like the previous two Overwatch 2 seasons, Season 3 will also likely have a cycle of cosmetics, emotes, and more, which fans can access with Overwatch Coins.
With the launch of Season 3 tomorrow, the Twitter account for Overwatch released a trailer providing details about the new content. The video showcases the new Kiriko Mythic skin, which adds to the limited selection of looks for the launch hero. It then shows off cosmetics for Ashe, D.Va, Genji, Junkrat, Junker Queen, Mei, Moira, Reaper, and Zenyatta, distinguishing what will be available in the battle pass and what will be offered in the shop. Here is the link to the Overwatch 2 Season 3 trailer.
The official roadmap for Overwatch 2 Season 3 has revealed a Valentine’s Day event starring Cupid Hanzo and a Pachi Mari-themed event with a new game mode. Additionally, the Overwatch World Cup is returning soon with a “LoverWatch” dating simulator launching on February 13 and a collaboration with the anime One Punch Man starting on March 7. Furthermore, new Twitch drops, a Honey Bee Mercy in the Overwatch 2 starter pack, and the ultimate battle pass bundle that includes Beekeeper Sigma, tier skips, and Overwatch Coins are all part of the Season 3 offerings.
The Season 3 trailer from Activision Blizzard turns the spotlight from the past Overwatch 2 Antarctic Peninsula teasers, and instead displays a battle scene with Orisa, Bastion, Tracer, and Wrecking Ball. The Ultimate Valentine event will be active from February 14 to February 28, followed by the One Punch Man collaboration which will be available from March 7 to April 6. Finally, the PachiMarchi festivities have been scheduled for March 21 to April 4.
Overwatch 2 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4/5, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One/Series X/S.
