This page contains details of the end date and time of Season 8 in Overwatch, with local times for the US, UK, European and other global regions.

Season 8 of Competitive Play in Overwatch is heading into the final stretch, and you'll soon be able to cash in all of that hard work for you season-themed player icons and sprays, as well as those all-important Competitive Points. Maybe this time around you'll be able to splash out on a new Golden Gun, eh?

If you're trying to bag as many rewards as possible, it's helpful to know the end date and time of Season 8 so you can take care of any last-minute business before that deadline rolls around. Thanks to a post published on the official Overwatch forums yesterday evening, we can now confirm that Season 8 of Overwatch will end on Sunday 25th February at 4:00pm PT.

In other words, you've only got one more weekend of play left to scramble through some more matches, grab some extra CP, and maybe even rank up before the deadline lands - who knows?

If you're not based in the US then it can be a little confusing to work out when Season 8 ends in your own corner of the world. Fear not, as our trusty timezone table contains everything you need to know:

Overwatch Season 8 Player Spray and Icon

When Season 8 of Overwatch ends, you'll receive a number of rewards based on your performance. First of all, every player who completed their placement matches will receive their player icon and spray. Expect those to be available to show off to the world, the next time you log in after Season 8 ends on Sunday.

More than that though, you'll also get your hands on a decent chunk of bonus Competitive Points (CP) based on your finishing rank for Season 8. These are added to the pool of CPs you've been picking up on a per-match basis, and these can then be used to purchase one of these delicious Golden Guns (assuming you have enough currency, that is):

How many CP do you get for finishing at each rank though? Handily enough, Blizzard has also provided us all with a breakdown of what you receive for finish between Bronze and Grandmaster. Here's the complete breakdown:
