Overwatch 2 will be expanding its roster with a new support hero soon. As announced on the official Overwatch Twitter, in Season 4, Lifeweaver will be available to play, shaking up the meta once again. With a design centred around pink floral themes, and what appears to be ‘hardlight’ technology, this support no doubt already seems grounded in the lore of the game’s universe.
Lifeweaver, as his callsign appears to be, is a support with a white and pink colour scheme. Floral imagery is also visible throughout his design, which could be the cherry blossom, as the Twitter post implies. The hero’s right arm appears to be a golden glove, emitting ‘hardlight’, a term that refers to the material used by Vishkar members (such as Symmetra) to create solid objects. This means that he could potentially be linked to Symmetra in the lore.
Lifeweaver is about to blossom 🌸

We’ll have to wait a little longer to find out more, however. Further information will come out tomorrow (Tuesday, April 4th). This could either be a full reveal trailer, or something considerably smaller, such as a brief description of his abilities. We’ll just have to wait and see what Overwatch 2‘s new support has in store for us.
