Overwatch 2 Heroes to be Available for Free at the Launch of Season 10

Starting with the launch of Season 10 in mid-April, all heroes in Overwatch 2 will be free at release. This means no more waiting to unlock new characters through the battle pass or grinding for hours to access them.

In a recent developer update, game director Aaron Keller spilled the beans, stating, "Heroes are one of the most exciting additions to the game and we want all of our players to have immediate access to them when they launch, which is why I'm thrilled to share that Venture and all future heroes will be free for all players when they launch," he said.


This is a huge shift in the game's dynamics as Keller also mentioned, "Starting with Venture, heroes will no longer be unlocked through the Battle Pass. This includes all previous Overwatch 2 heroes."

But that's not all! Blizzard is introducing a new way to unlock Mythic skins with the launch of the Mythic Shop in Season 10. According to the studio, "The Mythic Shop will allow you to work towards past and current seasonal Mythic hero skins as you progress through the Premium Battle Pass."

Players will now earn coins through both the free and premium tracks of the battle pass, with the number of coins available for free increasing from 540 to 600 per season. This offers more flexibility and rewards for players as they progress through the game.

And if you can't get enough of new game modes, Blizzard has also launched Plunderstorm, a battle royale-inspired limited-time event for World of Warcraft, adding even more excitement to the gaming experience.

With all these updates, Overwatch 2 is shaping up to be a must-play game for both new and existing players. So get ready to jump into the action-packed world of Overwatch 2 and experience the thrill of playing with all your favorite heroes for free!
