Unravelling the Overwatch 2 Season 5 Battle Pass: From Mythic Tracer Skin to RPG Challenges
Feast your eyes on the Overwatch 2 Season 5 Battle Pass, as Blizzard have oh-so-generously offered us a taste of the impressive array of skins players can snag this time round. The showstopper of the bunch? An outstanding Mythic Tracer skin that levels up as you climb the Battle Pass tiers. All hail the new Tracer skin, where the fantasy theme makes its mark across Overwatch 2 Season 5.
Imagine your favourite Overwatch characters embarking on a Dungeons & Dragons-style tabletop RPG because that’s exactly how the Season 5 Battle Pass progression is rolled out. With challenges tied to this theme, players can immerse themselves in the Defeat the Demon Lord game mode for a limited time. In this adrenaline-pumping 1v4 mode, teamwork is key as a squad of four collaborates to take down a pumped-up Reinhardt.
But that’s just the opening act! Overwatch 2 Season 5 has more in store. The cherished Lucioball makes its grand return for the annual Summer Games event, coupled with the fresh Winston Volleyball mode. Summer Games are set to kick off on July 11th, giving fans a breather before they jump into the action.
Next on the roster, a game mode dubbed Mischief and Magic, the Overwatch 2 iteration of the beloved Prop Hunt. In this classic FPS mode, one team morphs into an array of objects, whilst the other team is put to the test to find them. This entertaining mode hits the game on July 25th, offering a limited time window of excitement.
