Overwatch 2 Unveils Enchanting New Support Hero for Season 4
Meet Lifeweaver, the support hero ready to debut in the upcoming season.
Blizzard Entertainment continues to expand the hero roster of its popular free-to-play shooter, Overwatch 2, with the introduction of Lifeweaver, a captivating new support-class hero. As the 37th hero to join the game, Lifeweaver is set to debut in the highly anticipated fourth season, which launches on April 11th.
Inspired by Thai culture, Lifeweaver’s design is an ode to the country’s rich heritage. His attire is adorned with lotus flowers, while mandala-style petals are showcased on his back. The hero also wields a lotus flower in his primary fire hand, further emphasizing the theme. Blizzard has teased a screenshot featuring the character, complete with a prang in the background to solidify his origins.
Lifeweaver is the ninth support hero to join Overwatch 2, representing Blizzard’s commitment to diversifying the support roster. With Lifeweaver’s arrival, players can expect an even more dynamic gameplay experience with the opportunity to explore new strategies.
While specific details about Lifeweaver’s abilities and skillset remain under wraps, Blizzard is set to reveal more information tomorrow, Tuesday. Like previous hero releases, Lifeweaver is expected to be included in Overwatch 2‘s next Battle Pass. However, he will not be immediately available for play in the game’s competitive modes. Players must exercise patience before fully diving into the action with this fascinating new support character.
Lifeweaver is about to blossom 🌸
