Overwatch 2 Season 10 is around the corner, and it’s gearing up to be another huge update for Blizzard’s ongoing Hero shooter. Here’s everything we know about OW2 Season 10, from new DPS Hero Venture to the Mythic Shop.

Overwatch 2 Season 10 is bringing some exciting new content to the game, including the new Hero, Venture. Blizzard also revealed a ton of changes that will introduce new features and drastically change the game’s meta.

So, if you’re interested in all the details, here’s everything we know about Overwatch 2 Season 10 so far.

Overwatch 2 Season 10 release date

Overwatch 2 Season 10 begins on Tuesday, April 16, 2024. The new season, titled “Venture Forth” will bring a load of new content to enjoy, from a new Hero to new maps and modes.

Overwatch 2 Season 10 Battle Pass & Mirrorwatch event mode

The theme for the Overwatch 2 Season 10 Battle Pass is Mirrorwatch, which is essentially Overwatch skins for Talons and Talon skins for members of the Overwatch.

This flips the script, turning good into evil and vice versa. Mercy will get a Mythic skin called Vengeance Mercy, giving the support Hero a Talon makeover.

The Mirrorwatch theme also brings a new event mode, in which the Heros have reimagined abilities to suit the mirrored versions of themselves.

OW2 Season 10 new Hero: Venture

Overwatch 2 Season 10 will introduce Venture, a brand-new DPS Hero who can burrow underground to get the drop on the enemy team. Fans also got a look at their primary fire, which shoots exploding projectiles, as well as a dash attack that gives them +50 shield.

Overwatch 2 Game Director Aaron Keller also confirmed that every Hero introduced in Overwatch 2 will become available for free for all players. This also means that users won’t have to grind the Battle Pass to unlock them anymore.

OW2 Season 10: Hero changes

Overwatch 2 Season 10 will see changes to a lot of Heroes, including a massive rework for Wrecking Ball, and changes to how Moira, Lucio, and Illari work.

According to the latest Director’s Take, both Junker Queen and Reinhardt will see changes to their ultimate abilities to “cut through better in the post-Season 9 world.”

Some Supports will also receive changes, including Moira, Lucio, and Illari. Specifically, the devs have mentioned that they are looking to shift how their kits work and make one area stronger than it has been previously. Illari, for example, is getting an increase in healing and a slight nerf to her primary fire – making her more reliable for healing instead of damage.

DPS Heroes Sombra and Tracer will also get some tweaks, with Sombra’s Virus receiving a slight nerf and Tracer will get some changes that will make her “more punishable.”

OW2 Season 10: Golden gun changes

Overwatch 2 Season 10 is set to bring even more tweaks to how players earn Golden guns. Since the previous season went live, fans can only unlock the prestigious skins using Legacy Competitive Points, while the new Jade weapons are earned through the regular Competitive Points.

Following complaints from the community, OW2 Game Director, Aaron Keller, announced that the team is working on a change to make Golden skins available using the 2024 points.

He said: “We’re working on the ability for players to buy Golden Weapons with the new, 2024 Competitive Currency. Currently planning on releasing the change in Season 10, but feel free to save up for Golden Weapons in the meantime!”

Overwatch 2 Season 10: Mythic skins shop

During the latest Developer Update, Keller also announced the Mythic skins shop, a new way to unlock Mythic skins in Overwatch 2.

“We would like to give everyone more choice in how they unlock and upgrade Mythic skins. Our goal is to give you more power over which Mythic skin you would like to work towards,” commented the Game Director.

Starting in Season 10, the Mythic skins shop will feature Mythic skins from previous seasons that players weren’t able to unlock and give them a chance to get them.

There’s little confirmed about how the Mythic skin shop will work in Overwatch 2, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as more news are released.

Clash game mode arrives in OW2 Season 10

Overwatch 2 Season 10 will see the introduction of Clash, a new game mode that will be getting two brand-new maps this year.

Keller also confirmed that Blizzard will be running a limited-time playtest for Clash on the Hanaoka map at the start of Season 10.
