The community now has a better idea of which heroes will be rebalanced in Season 2. According to Blizzard Entertainment, the new season will bring a new hero, a new map, a new Battle Pass and more to the game. The community can’t wait for its launch on December 6th.
With the start of Season 2, maps will rotate from the game’s vast map pool. It will bring back some old favorites like Rialto, Oasis and Nepal. You can see some of what’s in store for Overwatch 2 Season 2 in the new season trailer.
Doomfist is near the top of the dev list because Blizzard isn’t happy with his front line performance. Sojourn is a newcomer who dominates competitive mode. Her railgun will be nerfed to encourage players to get closer to combat.
Ana, Bastion, Symmetra, Kiriko, Mercy, and the Junker Queen will also be tweaked, according to Blizzard’s blog post. These changes come just a few weeks after the last round of Hero balance changes.
The game will receive a limited-time Battle For Olympus mode from January 5th to January 19th. A slew of Olympic-themed skins, including the Mythic Zeus Junker Queen and Poseidon Ramattra, are also on their way to the Season 2 Premium Battle Pass.
The Winter Wonderland event will also take place in the game between December 13th and January 4th. Players who lost their Season 1 hero, Kiriko, to the Battle Pass grind will have another chance thanks to the new challenges introduced during the new season.
Blizzard is trying to make some incremental changes for the new season, as the Overwatch community wasn’t happy with how the developers handled the bug-filled first season.
