After a lot of guessing, intentional and accidental leaks, and a lot of heated discussion, Blizzard Entertainment has finally revealed how the Overwatch 2 Battle Pass will work. Especially interesting and contentious is the necessity to unlock Overwatch 2's new heroes like support Kiriko through the battle pass. Moreover, there are different types of battle passes available running for a duration of about 9 weeks. Here's is how the Overwatch 2 Battle Pass will work.

Overwatch 2 Battle Pass: Free And Premium

Much like other battle pass models, Overwatch 2's version will feature a free and a premium version. The premium battle pass will cost 1000 Overwatch Coins which comes down to a price of about $10 USD. Coins can also be earned through completing challenges, though the amount you will get is not known at this point.

Much like other battle passes, progression is gained through playing the game and completing daily and weekly tasks. The premium battle pass gives players additional rewards for completing each level. Once the battle pass has been completed, you can gain additional Prestige tiers to gain access to unique heroes to titles that will only be available during each respective season. You will also receive a party bonus for grouping with friends, giving you a 20% XP Boost on the XP gained through your matches. 

 

Overwatch 2 Battle Pass: Rewards & Kiriko

Of course, one of the most important questions is how new heroes will be unlocked given that they are set to release in season 1, season 2, and then every other season onward. Blizzard has shared that new heroes will be available at level 55 of the free battle pass while the premium battle pass players will have access to new heroes immediately. For Kirko specifically, she will also be available for owners of Overwatch 1 through the Founder's pack.

The free battle pass gets the following goodies to unlock:

  • Kiriko (Level 55)
  • 2 Epic Skins
  • 1 Weapon Charm
  • 2 Souvenirs
  • 1 Highlight Intro
  • 14 additional items 
  • Prestige Tier Titles 

The premium battle pass allows players to unlock the following benefits:

  • 20% Battle Pass XP Boost
  • 1 Mythic Skin
  • 5 Legendary skins
  • 1 Epic Skins
  • 3 Play of the Game animations
  • 4 Weapon Charms
  • 3 Emotes
  • 3 Souvenirs
  • 6 Poses
  • 6 Name Cards
  • 30+ additional cosmetic rewards

Crucially, players who have purchased the Watchpoint Pack will also receive the Season 1 Premium Battle pass immediately.
