Overwatch 2 Season 2 Preview - Ramattra, Shambali and more!
12/05/2022 - The new season of Overwatch 2 also brings a new round of balance changes that should bring some heroes closer to the rest of the hero pool in terms of competitiveness.
Both stats and player feedback have shown that Sojourn ranks the highest on the leaderboard, but remains challenging for players without the same mechanical skills. We take feedback on her challenging abilities seriously and are focusing on the destructive potential of her railgun from a distance in Season 2. We want to encourage players to use Sojourn's great mobility to close the distance and use the more devastating right-click abilities.
Doomfist undergoes significant changes that better suit his role as a front-line team fighter without affecting the play style that defines his hero identity. You can also expect adjustments for Ana, Bastion, Junker Queen, Kiriko, Mercy and Symmetra when we release the new update on December 6.
Greek Mythology and the Battle for Olympus
Season 2 is all about gods and legends of Greek mythology! Our second season features the brand new mythical skin Zeus for Junker Queen as the top reward in the Premium Battle Pass. Her skin also features new customization options, weapon models, spells, and special effects. You can also bask in the glory of her fellow gods as you earn the legendary skin Poseidon for Ramattra and the legendary skin Hades for Pharah by advancing in the Premium Battle Pass.
These and several other heroes will receive grandiose god-like abilities in our new Battle for Olympus game mode. This new limited-time event begins on January 5 and continues through January 19. Keep your eyes peeled for the skins that will be released this season. They might give you some clues about what to expect in Battle for Olympus!
