What time does Overwatch 2 season 4 start?

New hero incoming?

Overwatch 2 has given players a lot to digest with each new season, including a fresh battle pass loaded with cosmetics. And now that a new support hero has been teased and the date has been confirmed by Blizzard, players are looking ahead to season four. But when exactly does Overwatch 2 season 4 start?

With each Overwatch 2 season lasting about two months, players have a generally consistent timeline for when to expect certain content. And heading into season four, it looks like players can expect more of the same as far as timing is concerned in the game.

While season three introduced a new map to the game in the form of the frigid conditions of the Antarctic Peninsula control map, the upcoming season will come along with a new hero. In preparation for Overwatch 2, Blizzard told fans that new heroes and new maps would be introduced on an alternating basis from season to season.

What is Overwatch 2 season four’s start date and time?

Overwatch 2 season four starts today, April 11, at 1:00pm CT. Last week the date was confirmed with a quick preview of the newest support hero, Lifeweaver, which included a first look at his gameplay and a deeper look into his appearance and gave viewers a first listen to what he sounds like.

The timer in the game shares when season three is set to end. Previous seasons have started following maintenance and an update on the same day that the season before it concluded. Every season thus far has ended and started on a Tuesday in North America, so today, April 11, lines up perfectly with what fans anticipated.

When season four launches, players will have the opportunity to unlock Lifeweaver and get their hands on him. The new support hero has extensive utility at his disposal and looks like he might take some practice before players will truly get to master him.

Along with Lifeweaver, tons of other new goodies will be included in the battle pass, such as cosmetics, voicelines, and more.
