Ramattra joins the vanguard as the newest hero in Overwatch 2. In a nod to his revolutionary goals, Ramattra is the first tank that can fully shapeshift as part of his ability, altering his abilities and playstyle from one moment to another.
In Shambali Monastery, our new Escort map, we will go up the winding path that all the omnics who sought refuge within its walls had to travel. Outsmart your opponents in a battle for dominance over the once home of Zenyatta and Ramattra.
New season, new balance
A new season of Overwatch 2 involves another series of changes that seek to keep some of the heroes in competitive balance with the rest of the roster.
Both metrics and player feedback revealed that Sojourn dominated the higher tiers of the Competitive Play ranks, but at the same time, it presented a huge challenge for players without the same mechanical skills. To address feedback related to high tier, we’ll be focusing on the ranged lethality of her railgun in Season 2 and encouraging players to make use of Sojourn’s high mobility to close the distance and click. most devastating rights.
Doomfist will receive some major changes that will better support his role as the front line of the team, without losing that playstyle that is fundamental to his hero identity. You can also expect adjustments to Ana, Bastion, Junker Queen, Kiriko, Mercy, and Symmetra when we release this new update on December 6.

A new season brings a new set of maps. Along with Shambali Monastery, our newest map, players can look forward to the return of Rialto, one of their favorite maps, and Blizzard World, the world’s most epic place (some attractions may not be available due to bad weather).

Catch up with hero challenges
We are going to introduce new challenges in Season 2 so that players can get new heroes that they haven’t unlocked yet.
Players who were unable to unlock Kiriko during Season 1, or who are new when Season 2 begins, will be able to unlock new heroes by selecting the challenge for the hero they want to unlock. This will send them to the proving ground to learn their skills and ultimately challenge them to win Overwatch matches. For those who want to skip the challenges, you will have the option to unlock these new heroes directly in the in-game store. As a reminder, Overwatch 1 owners will receive the new heroes Sojourn, Junker Queen, and Kiriko automatically upon logging into the game before the end of Season 2. New Overwatch 2 players received Sojourn and Junker Queen as a bonus from login in season 1.
We look forward to what is to come.
Our player base, team and game grow. We will adapt and work on Overwatch 2 as a live service on an ongoing basis. Season 2 brings with it many important content updates that we’re excited to share with you, and we can’t wait to see how Ramattra will revolutionize the current state of the game.
