Overwatch 2's season 3 event is now live, and with that comes a host of new content. The latest update ushers in a new Asian Mythology theme, a new ice-based Control map, and an external dating simulator called Loverwatch for Valentine's Day. Developer Blizzard Entertainment has also unveiled a roadmap for the months on, which includes the first-ever major IP collaboration for Overwatch 2 — the uber-popular Japanese anime One-Punch Man. Even the appropriately titled PachiMarchi event from the original Overwatch returns in March with a new limited-time Kill Confirmed mode and other in-game cosmetic rewards.
Overwatch 2 season 3: Asian Mythology theme and Kiriko Amaterasu skin
“Overwatch has long explored and celebrated real-life cultures from around the world, which you can see in our roster of heroes from Korea, Japan, and China. We're excited to share we're diving into Asian Mythology as the theme for season three!”, the Blizzard Entertainment blog post reads. Just like last season, some rewards in Overwatch 2 will be locked behind its Premium battle pass, which upon completion grants an exclusive skin. This time, the reward is a gold-themed Amaterasu skin for the healing ninja Kiriko, which is inspired by various deities in Japanese mythology. As an added bonus, the skin is customisable — allowing players to switch between two additional colour variants, headgear, and weapons.
