Blizzard Entertainment has given a preview for Overwatch 2 Season 2, which will include a new tank named Ramattra, new Escort map called Shambali Monastery, and a new Greek Mythology theme!
The new hero, Ramattra, is the first tank that can completely change forms as part of his core kit, altering his abilities and playstyle from moment to moment.
The new map, Shambali Monastery, will see players ascend the winding path walked by countless Omnics who have sought refuge within its walls.
Overwatch 2 Season 2 will feature an all-new Mythic skin: Zeus Junker Queen, as the pinnacle reward on the Premium Battle Pass. Her skin will include new customizations, weapon models, voice lines, and special effects. Legendary Poseidon Ramattra and Legendary Hades Pharah will also be available by progressing through the premium battle pass.
A new Battle for Olympus game mode will also be introduced starting from January 5 until January 19, and while details are scarce, the new skins appearing this season may give a clue about what’s to come.
As part of the new season of Overwatch 2, another round of balance changes is intended to bring some Heroes more in line with the competitive balance for the rest of the roster.
In particular, Sojourn will be seeing changes to the lethality of her Rail Gun at distance, encouraging players to make use of Sojourn’s high mobility to close the distance for the more devastating right-clicks.
Doomfist will also be receiving significant changes that better support his role as the team’s front line, while still maintaining the playstyle core to his hero identity.
Players can also expect adjustments for Ana, Bastion, Junker Queen, Kiriko, Mercy, and Symmetra when we release this new update on December 6.
Overwatch 2 is now available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch, and PC.
