New Playable Hero Venture

One of the major additions to Overwatch 2 Season 10 is the new playable hero, “Venture.” Venture is a close to mid range DPS unit with very unique abilities. The hero will be playable to all players right after the season 10 release on April 16. Thanks to the new monetization system all of the new, old and upcoming heroes won’t be locked behind the Battle Pass, meaning every player gets to play them regardless of their progression of the BP.

Wrecking Ball Rework

Another interesting part of the upcoming Overwatch 2 Season 10 update is the rework of Wrecking Ball. In a recent blog post, Overwatch 2’s game director Aaron Keller revealed the changes coming to the tank hero.

While nearly every aspect of Wrecking Ball is being adjusted to add some extra power, the likely most effective change comes in the adaptive shields. Keller stated, “Now after using Adaptive Shields, you can reactivate the ability to transfer up to 300 overhealth to nearby allies, capped at 75 overhealth per ally.” Which will make diving with Wrecking Ball even more effective when combined with DPS allies.

New Mythic Shop
