Overwatch 2 Season 4 is set to bring a brand-new Support Hero to the game, and finally, the devs have officially revealed more details.

Overwatch 2 is host to an abundance of characters, all with unique personalities and abilities. One of the highlights of a new update for Overwatch 2 players is the prospect of a new Hero, which provides a new playstyle to master and could spice up the game’s meta.

The last character to be introduced was Ramattra, a Hero who definitely gave players something new in the Tank category. Overwatch 2 Season 4 will bring a new character, but who are they and what are their abilities?

Here’s everything we know about the Overwatch 2 Season 4 Hero.

Overwatch 2 Season 4 Hero release date & details revealed

The Overwatch 2 devs have officially confirmed that the new Hero arriving in the Season 4 update on April 14, 2023, will be a Support character.

Further, during a Twitch stream, OW2 devs were discussing the new Season 4 Hero, when they described them as “cute,” in a similar fashion to Mercy rather than the cuteness of Wrecking Ball. One of the devs also described them as a “kid,” so from this, we can assume that the new character will likely be a human Hero.

They also revealed that the new Overwatch 2 Season 4 Support Hero will have “mechanics that will be really interesting to watch unfold in high-level games,” which points to more sophisticated abilities and a playstyle with a lot of depth.

This is compounded by another comment from a dev during the stream, who said that the new Support character is “completely unique and different to anything we’ve done in Overwatch before.”

That’s all we currently know about the Season 4 Hero in Overwatch 2, but as more information is released we’ll be sure to update this piece.
