Season 10 of Overwatch will end on Wednesday 27th June at 5:00PM PDT. That's 3:00AM the next day for those of you in the UK, and 4:00AM in Europe. The news was confirmed on the game's official forums late yesterday evening.
Assuming you've at least completed your ten Season 10 placement matches, you'll receive your themed sprays and icons the next time you log in after the end of Season 10. Those who manage to reach the giddy heights of the Top 500 will receive an extra icon and a fancy animated version of the spray.
You'll also receive a number of Competitive Points [CP] based on the best Skill Rating [SR] achieved in Season 10. These can be used to purchase golden versions of your favourite guns.
Here's how the CP rewards break down for Season 10:
- SR 1-1409 - Bronze - 65 CP
- SR 1500-1999 - Silver - 125 CP
- SR 2000-2499 - Gold - 250 CP
- SR 2500-2000 - Platinum - 500 CP
- SR 3000-3499 - Diamond - 750 CP
- SR 3500-3999 - Master - 1200 CP
- SR 4000-5000 - Grandmaster - 1750 CP
That's everything you need to know about the end of Season 10, then, but we've yet to hear whether or not the upcoming Looking for Group [LFG] feature will make it into the game for the start of Season 11, which is scheduled to kick off on Saturday 30th June.
Promised as a summer release, the group-finding feature will allow players to set up teams with specific role requirements. Other players can then use the tool to find teams that still need Tanks, for example, or Support heroes.
It's a highly anticipated new feature for the game, and it's hoped that the LFG tool will go some way towards reducing the player toxicity that many experience.
We'll add an update to the homepage as soon as we have firm news on the LFG release date.
