Overwatch 2 Season One Battle Pass: Rewards and Pricing Revealed
Blizzard Entertainment revealed more details about its controversial battle pass for Overwatch 2. The new battle pass system will require players to spend 1000 Overwatch Coins if they want access to premium cosmetics and instant access to the new heroes. Players can also unlock the new heroes for free by they will need to reach level 55 out of 80 on the battle pass’ free tier to do so.
Overwatch 2 Battle Pass Pricing and Rewards
Here are all of the rewards from the FREE tier of Overwatch 2:
New Hero - Kiriko (For new players who won’t have her already)
2 Epic Skins
1 Weapon Charm
1 Highlight Intro
14 additional items (emotes, victory poses, name cards, sprays, player icons, etc.)
Prestige Tier Titles (8 earnable titles available only after completing the entire pass)
The pass will also have a premium tier that will be priced at 1000 Overwatch Coins, which translates to around $10 USD (prices may vary depending on your region). The PREMIUM pass will unlock the following items:
Immediate access to Kiriko
20% XP Battle Pass Boost
1 Mythic Skin
5 Legendary Skins and 1 Epic Skin
3 Play of the Game Intros
4 Weapon Charms
6 Name Cards
30+ additional cosmetic rewards
Everyone progresses through the Battle Pass simply by playing the game, as well as through completing daily and weekly challenges which offer significant XP. You can also progress your Battle Passes faster by grouping up for a 20% XP boost on match XP. If you decide later in the season to acquire the Premium Battle Pass, all previously earned premium tiers will unlock at that time.
This focus also means that when a new hero is introduced, Blizzard will delay introducing them into Competitive modes for a few weeks. This will give players time to progress their battle pass and earn the new heroes before heading into Competitive modes. It will also give Blizzard enough time to fine-tune new heroes if balance changes are necessary.
