Overwatch Season 3: Release Time And Update Patch Notes

Overwatch Season 3 has been released today on 7th February. Fans of Overwatch 2 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch are counting down to the commencement of Season 3.

Overwatch Season 3: What’s New In It?

The next Overwatch 2 season will debut on February 7 at 6 p.m. UK time. It goes without saying that a sizable new update and a new Battle Pass with a variety of Legendary skins, emotes, sprays, and other items will accompany the start of the new season.

The Amaterasu Kiriko legendary skin, which is included with the Honey Bee Mercy skin in the Starter Bundle and the Beekeeper Sigma skin in the Ultimate Battle Pass pack, is the most notable new cosmetic.

Speaking of cosmetics, the new season’s ability to earn credits with the Battle Pass is one of its more intriguing elements.

The credits can be applied to more than 250 different Overwatch original cosmetic items in the item shop. The new season also introduces the map of the Antarctic Peninsula, which has an abandoned Ecopoint station.

Additionally, Blizzard will introduce a new Streamer Protect feature that will enable broadcasters to conceal important data while playing live games.
