Overwatch 2 Season 7 confirmed

Get Ready for the Spooky Season in Overwatch 2

The highly anticipated Season 7 of Overwatch 2 is just around the corner, set to launch on October 10. As with each new season, players can expect an exciting array of new content to enhance their gaming experience. This time, Overwatch 2 is embracing the Halloween spirit with its chilling “Rise of Darkness” theme, featuring a gothic and twisted aesthetic. Alongside the new theme, players can look forward to the return of a PvE mode, a collaboration with Diablo 4 resulting in new skins (including the eye-catching Lilith Moira), and a brand new map called Samoa, which hints at the introduction of a new playable character.

If you thought the new map was the highlight, wait until you hear about the collaboration between Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4. This marks Overwatch’s second crossover with a major IP, following the successful One Punch Man collaboration which brought iconic skins like the Saitama Doomfist skin. In this new crossover, the standout skin is undoubtedly Lilith Moira, a perfect match for those TikTok Moira players who prefer right-clicking over left-clicking. But don’t worry if Diablo isn’t your thing, as there will also be a range of new general Halloween-themed skins, including a new Mythic skin for Hanzo, as well as skins for Echo and Widowmaker.

New Features Await Competitive Players and Casual Gamers

For those who enjoy the competitive side of Overwatch 2, Season 7 introduces an exciting addition in the form of a new map named Samoa. Officially revealed during the Overwatch League Grand Finals, Samoa is a Control map that joins the ranks of popular maps like Busan, Ilios, Lijiang Tower, Nepal, and Oasis. Control maps have always been fan-favorites, so expectations are high for this fresh addition. Meanwhile, if you prefer a more casual gaming experience, you’ll be pleased to know that the annual Halloween PvE tradition, Junkerstein’s Revenge, will make a return.

Mark your calendars for October 10, when Season 7 of Overwatch 2 will officially go live.

Overwatch 2 is available for PC, Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch, so players across platforms can join in the fun.
