News | Overwatch 2 season four content revealed

Blizzard has revealed what players can expect from Overwatch 2 during the game's fourth season.

The company did so via a new blog post. The new hero Lifeweaver was previously revealed. It is about “an intelligent and curious adventurer who uses his biolight technology to make the world a better place. Lifeweaver influences the dynamics of every battle by providing cover, using his mobility and applying impactful positioning in ways we never have seen before.” The hero will be immediately available to players with a premium battle pass, others must reach level 45.

The fourth season, which begins on April 11, will have a space theme. In the new trailer that can be viewed below, various new skins, modes and challenges can be seen. For example, there is the BOB and Weave mode, a variant of the 3v3 deathmatch in which everyone plays as Lifeweaver and each team has its own robot butler that can be moved with Lifeweaver’s Life Grip move. Bob and Weave is available until April 25.

A mode that ties into the space theme is Starwatch: Galactic Rescue, a 4v4 mode set on Horizon Lunar Colony. This mode logically also includes new skins for characters.

Battle for Olympus will also return from May 23 to 29. Hanzo, Lifeweaver, and Sigma will receive the Mythic-tier skin this season. Blizzard will also be selling a variety of skins again, including Omnic skins for Roadhog and Junkrat and a Pinocchio-esque look for Zenyatta. Finally, Brigitte gets a wider shield when she uses her ultimate.
