Overwatch 2 Season 3 brings a new map, a collaboration with One Punch Man, an Asian mythology theme, and a text-based dating sim

After launching last October, Overwatch 2 is ready to launch its third season of content on February 7th. This season features several facets of new content, including a new Antarctica control map, an Asian mythology theme, and a Kiriko Mythic skin. Additionally, Blizzard announced some unexpected additions to its Overwatch offerings, including the first IP collaboration and a Valentine’s Day web-based game.

Antarctica joins the Season 3 map rotation. While players are already familiar with the world’s most sparsely populated continent from Ecopoint: Antarctica, this map features unique locations, including an icebreaker ship and an underground drilling station. The map allows players to take the high altitude or sneaky flank routes to achieve their objectives.

The overarching theme of the third season is Asian mythology. Inspired by the legends of various Asian cultures, Blizzard created some of its most unique skins to date. One of these skins is on its Premium Battle Pass in the form of the Amaterasu Kiriko Mythic skin, which is inspired by various deities in Japanese mythology. This Mythic skin also features a new look for Kiriko’s Ghost Fox.

While our first impressions of Overwatch 2 were good thanks to the enjoyable continuation of the Overwatch formula and overall gameplay, the more we delved into the seasonal structure, the less excited we became to log in each day. Blizzard appears to be aware of the impact its Battle Pass has had on some longtime players and is taking some initial steps to try and rectify that. The Season 3 Battle Pass promises more rewards for just logging in and playing, with an additional 10 tiers of rewards on the free track, as well as 1,500 credits to earn for use in the Hero Gallery. The premium track also gets an upgrade with 500 more credits than previous seasons.

Additionally, nearly all Overwatch 1 Epic and Legendary Event Hero Skins have been added to the Hero Gallery and can be purchased with either Overwatch Coins or Credits at a discounted price of 1,500 Credits (from 1,900). Blizzard will also offer four skins that can be earned outside of the Battle Pass through in-game events. One of these skins to earn is Overwatch’s first-ever IP collaboration.

This debut collaboration features the popular manga/anime One Punch Man. Appropriately, the outfit of the hero who can defeat anyone with one punch is given to Overwatch’s heavy-hitting heavyweight Doomfist. Blizzard says this is just the first collaboration and wants fans to contribute with suggestions for future collaborations.

Finally, Blizzard is releasing a non-canon text-based dating sim called Loverwatch. In this web-based game, players can choose between two possible dating paths: Mercy or Genji. Each path offers dialogue options to interact with the hero of your choice, with the help of Hanzo/Cupid. If you can unlock the secret ending to this 30 minute dating sim, you’ll be rewarded with a themed highlight intro. Loverwatch will be available to play exactly here until February 28th.
