The Overwatch 2 Season 3 roadmap has been revealed and it includes the franchise’s first-ever official IP collaboration in the form of One Punch Man. Season 3, which begins tomorrow, will also include a new map, a new mythic skin, and a brand new Battle Pass as well as a variety of limited-time events.
The Overwatch 2 Season 3 content and event schedule
Season 3 will begin on February 7 and will bring a host of new content. This will include a new Antarctic Peninsula Control map complete with an ice-breaker ship and an underground drilling station, and a Battle Pass that will include the opportunity to earn Overwatch Credits. The Battle Pass will offer four legendary and mythic skins inspired by Asian mythology, including the Amaterasu Kiriko mythic skin. Anybody who logs in during the first week of the season will get the first five free tiers of rewards automatically unlocked.
The first Season 3 event will be Ultimate Valentine from February 14-28 and this will feature a Cupid Hanzo bundle, a Hanzo 4v4 Limited Time Mode, and Support-themed challenges whose rewards include two epic skins. The day before on February 13, the Loverwatch Dating Sim will offer a 30-minute long text-based non-canon story that gives players the chance to date Mercy and Genji. Anybody who logs on during the Ultimate Valentine event will receive a Cupid Hanzo Player icon.
Also in February is the Overwatch World Cup 2023. A gold medal weapon charm will be given to anyone who logs in between February 7-20. This will then be followed by the One Punch Man limited-time event from March 7-April 6, the first-ever IP collaboration for Overwatch 2. This will introduce One-Punch Man skins and cosmetics, including the Saitama skin for Doomfist. Themed challenges will also offer a new Legendary skin.
Finally, the PachiMarchi event returns with a limited-time Kill Confirmed game mode between March 21-April 4. Rewards include an Epic Pachimari Roadhog skin, six PachiMarchi player icons, a weapon charm, and name card. Players will get a PachiMarchi Roadhog player icon for just logging in during the event. Most players will just be hoping for a reduction in the number of recycled skins.
