Overwatch 2 Premium Battle Pass Mythic Genji Skin

Following the recent speculation and leaks, Blizzard has finally revealed official details about Overwatch 2‘s Battle Pass. Today’s announcement details its price, what it includes, and how the free and premium versions will work. It also answers some other questions, like what new cosmetics are coming to Overwatch and the theme of the first battle pass.

Overwatch 2 releases on October 4, and the first battle pass will launch alongside it. Players will have access to a free version of the battle pass, however a lot of content will be locked behind the premium battle pass. You’ll be able to purchase the premium battle pass for 1,000 Overwatch Coins. That will set you back $9.99 USD or your regional equivalent.


Season One Battle Pass

For Overwatch 2, Blizzard is moving to a seasonal release model. Every nine weeks it will release a new hero, map, skins, and a battle pass. By working your way through the battle passes’ 80 tiers, you’ll gain access to a variety of cosmetics. These cosmetics include skins, play-of-the-game intros, weapon charms, emotes, souvenirs, poses, and name cards.

Free-to-play players will have to unlock new heroes by working through the battle pass. Each new season will introduce a new hero who you can unlock by reaching tier 55. New heroes will not be locked behind the premium battle pass, although purchasing the premium battle pass will unlock them instantly. Players who own the original Overwatch will unlock Kiriko automatically through their Overwatch Founder’s Pack.

The completionists amongst you will be especially interested in the new Prestige tier Titles. You can only earn these eight special titles once you’ve completed the battle pass.
