Venture comes to Overwatch 2

Venture will be immediately available when Season 10 arrives tomorrow. This is the first season where all heroes — new and from past seasons — will be unlocked and no longer part of the battle pass.

DPS hero Venture is focused on aggressive mobility thanks to their digging abilities. Here is everything you need to know about Venture’s kit.

Venture Overwatch 2

Mirrorwatch limited time game mode

Overwatch 2 is also getting a LTM in Season 10. Called Mirrorwatch, players will “discover a world turned over” where heroes are now villains and villains are now the good guys.

The heroes in Mirrorwatch will have reimagined abilities to match their new alignment. For example, Vengeance Mercy has an ability called Soul Burn that detonates and damages enemies, while Agent Colomar Sombra has an ultimate called Anti-Virus.

This mirror mode will be available from April 23 to May 13.

On top of this LTM, there will be a Clash trial from April 16 to April 29. This mode will be one of the main ones when it releases, featuring five capture points starting at the objective in the center of the map.

Mythic Prisms in Overwatch 2

Season 10 is introducing something called Mythic Prisms. When you upgrade to the Premium Battle Pass, you can collect Mythic Prisms and use them toward the Mythic hero skin of your choice. Once you complete the entire Premium Battle Pass, you’ll have 80 Prisms that can unlock a complete Mythic skin.

The Mythic skin this season is Vengeance Mercy, featured in Mirrorwatch. This version of Mercy is leading Talon in taking over the world. This Mythic skin will have three new color combinations and masks, as well as multiple hair options and Caduceus Staff variations.

If you don’t play as Mercy, you can use your Prisms towards past Mythic skins from previous seasons.
