Overwatch 2 fans are eagerly anticipating the upcoming release of Season 4, and the excitement is at an all-time high with the reveal of a brand new support hero. Blizzard has officially announced the addition of ‘Lifeweaver’ to the game’s roster, and fans are already speculating about the hero’s abilities and what unique playstyle they will bring to the table!
A lot has yet to be revealed about the hero, but we do know that Lifeweaver is a support hero, and their design appears to be centered around pink Lotus flowers. The background of the image tweeted by the official Overwatch Twitter handle also suggests that Lifeweaver hails from Thailand. As for how their design fits into their support capabilities and what their overall kit is, Blizzard has promised to reveal more throughout the week.
@PlayOverwatch officially revealed the upcoming Support hero yesterday.
Lifeweaver is the first post-launch Support hero in Overwatch 2, and while Blizzard hasn’t confirmed it, the hero will likely be acquirable in the same way as the other new heroes before them. Players can unlock Lifeweaver immediately by purchasing the Season 4 premium battle pass or as a free reward at tier 45. However, going by past character releases, Lifeweaver will likely be unavailable for selection in competitive matches and be limited to casual playlists for the first two weeks of the season – which is plenty of time for free-to-play players to acquire the new hero.
Overwatch 2 has found its rhythm as a live-service FPS game, with three solid, well-received limited-time events during Season 3, including Valentine’s Day, the unexpected One Punch Man crossover event, and the most recent Pachimari event. The momentum of new content looks like it won’t slow anytime soon, and the anticipation for Season 4 is palpable.
As for what else we can expect from Season 4, Blizzard has promised balancing changes, matchmaking upgrades, and other exciting new content. The season releases on April 11, and fans are eagerly awaiting the reveal of what’s in store. With the addition of Lifeweaver, Overwatch 2 continues to keep things fresh and exciting for its dedicated fanbase. The future looks bright for the game, and we can’t wait to see what’s next!
