One of the best times to jump back into Overwatch 2 is when a fresh nine-week long season begins, and it looks like that’s not changing with Season 7. Developer Blizzard has revealed that it’s launching on Oct. 10, and while we don’t have many details about it yet, a newly released teaser trailer does reveal a fair amount of what’s coming to the PvP hero shooter.

Based on the contents of the teaser video, it seems clear that Season 7 — officially titled “Rise of Darkness” — is themed after Blizzard’s action RPG series Diablo. The trailer showed a Diablo-inspired overhaul for Overwatch 2’s Blizzard World map, as well as a hellish portal that looks like it came straight out of Diablo 4, zomnic enemies from the (presumably returning) Junkenstein’s Revenge PvE Halloween event, and some themed character skins for Wrecking Ball and Moira.
