Overwatch 2 won’t lock up new heroes behind a paid battle pass, it’s emerged. Blizzard VP Jon Spector confirmed that heroes will be available through a toll-free battle pass number. Spector’s comments were an attempt to end speculation about what he described as “incomplete info” circulating online about Overwatch 2’s battle pass.

Liam and Ed enjoyed their time with Overwatch 2’s second closed beta earlier this year.

Blizzard revealed that Overwatch 2 would be free to play on the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase in June. They described the game as an “ever-evolving live service”, but did not explain what players would be charged for at the time. There has been speculation that access to new characters would be locked behind a paywall, similar to Fortnite. In response to a question about players potentially missing out on heroes if they weren’t unlocked during a particular season, Spector clarified that there will be more opportunities to get heroes. “We will also have free paths in future seasons to get new heroes,” Spector said.

A new hero coming to Overwatch 2 has also been leaked. Support hero Kiriko has a catchy fox-eared hat and seems to love frosted donuts. The character was revealed when an unfinished movie for the game was shared on YouTube and was spotted by gleeful RPS fansite PCGamer. It was subsequently removed, but is still floating around on other sites. You can check out Kiriko in the images below, shared by OverwatchNaeri on Twitter:

OverwatchNaeri also has posted details Rewards come in Overwatch 2’s Season One Battle Pass. These include Kiriko, a mythical skin from Cyber ​​Demon Genji, and a legendary skin for Kiriko based on the mystical phoenix. There are reportedly more than 80 new cosmetics coming, and a new hero for the free job.

Ed struggled to find the sequel part in Overwatch 2 when he played the second open beta in July, but felt it was a faster game. “It’s a joy to be on the front lines as a Junker Queen, so I have no qualms about her being part of the roster,” he said. “But there’s a feeling that the old guard can’t keep up with her and the rest of Overwatch 2’s new wave of enemy heroes. Reinhardt and Winston and Cassidy are still fun to play, but they are forever tied to the game’s original slower design philosophy.

Overwatch’s regulators, Activision Blizzard, are still mired in legal issues, reporting on workplace discrimination, harassment and poor working conditions. They are also being bought by Microsoft for $68.7 billion (£59 billion), a deal announced by surprise in January this year. That same month, Mike Ybarra, head of Blizzard Entertainment, said he is committed to fostering change within the company.

Overwatch 2 launches on October 4 and is free to play. It will be available on Blizzard’s Battle.net launcher.
