Blizzard announced that Overwatch 2 Season 4 is coming tomorrow, April 2, and it will introduce a new hero, new skins, and more.
No doubt the biggest addition of the season is Lifeweaver, the first Thai hero in Overwatch. As his name implies, Lifeweaver is a Support hero with strong healing abilities.
For instance, his Healing Blossom can be charged to give an ally a burst of healing. To protect himself meanwhile is the second primary fire Thorn Volley which allows him to fire a spread of projectiles.
As for his abilities, Lifeweaver has a Petal Platform that allows allies to spring upwards, as well as Life Grip to pull an ally to his location. his Rejuvenating Dash also allows him to dash while lightly healing himself. And finally, his ultimate is Tree of Life which instantly heals allies in an area while also continuously healing them.
Here’s a rundown of his skills:
Season Four also has its first event which celebrates Lifeweaver and his Thai origins. Until April 26, the event will feature all-new arcade mode, B.O.B. and Weave. This mode is a 3v3 detahmatch where everyone plays Lifeweaver and each team has a single B.O.B that can be pulled around the map with Life Grip.
There are also event challenges that let players earn special Lifeweaver and Thai New Year rewards until April 26.
In May, the space opera PvP event Starwatch: Galactic Rescue will also go live, and its a 4v4 game mode that’s set in a tweaked Horizon: Lunar Colony, complete with new objectives and other surprises.
This event will go live from May 10-23, and it will also come with special rewards.
The new season also comes with additional balance updates, as well as Competitive and Matchmaking updates that include the removal of seasonal decay along with the average skill rating of the match being displayed at the start of each game.
Though the biggest update is the rework to Brigitte which addresses her ultimate ability, Rally.
