Space Opera Is The Next Overwatch 2 Seasonal Theme

Bend your knee to the Galactic Emperor

Perhaps the neatest part of Overwatch 2’s seasonal release schedule is the use of themes to make them cool and unique โ€“ and the big reveal for the upcoming Season 4 is that we are stepping into the stars with a radicalย Space Opera theme!

The flagship cosmetic that defines the entire thing is the new Mythic tier skin for our good friend, Sigma โ€“ the gravity-manipulating music lover has updated his wardrobe and social status to become aย Galactic Emperor.

To supplement this awesome look, we have a range of character skins that create an implied narrative of loyalists versus scrappy space rogues โ€“ with some of your favourite characters suiting up in oppressive uniforms that pledge fealty to Sigma and others looking like they stepped off the set of Guardians of the Galaxy.

To further the neat implied narrative, there will even be a unique in-game event that pits the evil regime against the rebel watchers on a reworked version of the Horizon Lunar Colony map โ€“ so you can roleplay your very own space opera!

There will also be a range of neat new events to keep things interesting throughout the season, each offering fun free rewards for participating. The first of which is a celebratory arcade mode to introduce everyone to Lifeweaver, in a game type called “B.O.B and Weave” โ€“ and if you jump in you can earn a free epic skin for the flower-powered heartthrob.

My greatest regret is that I am unbelievably trash at Ashe, so I can’t justify using her new alien B.O.B skin. At least I can hold my own when the Symmetra challenge drops in late May.

You can expect all of this new content in Overwatch 2โ€™s fourth season, arriving on April 11.
