Blizzard has made known all the updates, enhancements, and new pieces of content coming to its flagship first-person shooter game with the start of Overwatch 2 Season 3. The cooperation between Overwatch 2 and One Punch Man, which will make Doomfist the laziest hero ever, is the most unexpected.
This Overwatch 2 One Punch Man crossover will start on March 7, so you’ve got a month of Overwatch 2 Season 3 from Blizzard before it officially drops. This is the “first-ever major IP collaboration for Overwatch 2” according to Blizzard as well, with skins and cosmetics set to drop in Season 3 as part of the deal.
Combined with more frequent Overwatch 2 dev updates, this Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man collab is sure to be a welcome addition. So far we’ve seen the Saitama Doomfist skin, but Blizzard adds that more of the items will be revealed ahead of the March 7 release date, “with one being a Legendary skin that’s earnable via themed challenges.”
It’s currently unclear exactly how the One Punch Man cosmetics and items will be rolled out, whether some will be available for free with some work (like the aforementioned challenges) or if they’ll all be in the store and in a bundle for a limited time.

There are plenty of other Overwatch 2 character skins coming as a part of Season 3 as well, which is themed around Asian mythology. Starting February 14 until February 28 you can also play a short Overwatch 2 dating simulator online for free. Loverwatch is a non-canon adventure where you can either woo Mercy or Genji, and you can even get in-game rewards for playing as well.
