Overwatch 2 Officially Announced

Blizzard Entertainment introduced Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon 2019. Unlike the first Overwatch, this time the game also contains full PvE content, including a campaign. It is currently unclear when and for platforms the game will be released.

The campaign tells how years after the breakup of Overwatch Winston tries to get the old gang back together. That story is told in the new Story Missions. There are also Hero Missions that focus on replayable co-op. In those Hero Missions it is, among other things, possible to level your characters and to adjust your abilities.

There are also various updates at the PvP level. For example, there is a completely new mode called Push. In total, the new Overwatch contains 31 playable characters, including the completely new character Sojourn.

Finally, Blizzard emphasizes that players from the original Overwatch are not forgotten. This way you can transfer all your outfits and progression to the new game, and it is also possible for players of Overwatch and Overwatch 2 to play certain multiplayer modes together.

The first Overwatch launched in 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This year the game also came to the Switch.
