HEROES RISE AND VILLAINS EMERGE IN CO-OP MISSIONS
Experience the advent of a new Overwatch as Winston, Tracer, and other members of the original Overwatch join forces with a new generation of heroes in action-packed, cooperative Story Missions. Players will take an active role in the next chapter of the Overwatch saga as it unfolds through a series of intense, high-stakes 4-player missions, taking control of different sets of heroes as they fight to defend the world from Null Sector, uncover the motives behind the omnic attacks, and confront rising new threats around the globe.
The battle continues in Hero Missions, where heroes are called upon to go beyond their limits as they deploy across the world, defending cities against robot invasions, taking on elite Talon agents, and battling the villainous forces laying siege to the world. In this highly replayable mode, players can level up their heroes and earn powerful customization options that supercharge their abilities, granting the extra edge they need to overcome the odds. Choose whether you want Reinhardt’s Fire Strike to ignite nearby enemies, or modify his hammer to swing with increasingly blazing speed; modify Mei’s Endothermic Blaster so frozen foes take more damage and shatter into deadly ice shards; and more.
A NEW ERA OF EPIC COMPETITION
Overwatch 2 represents the beginning of a new era for Overwatch’s world-renowned competitive 6v6 play. In addition to carrying forward all of the original game’s heroes, maps, and modes—as well as existing Overwatch players’ accomplishments and loot collections—Overwatch 2 adds multiple new playable heroes to the ever-growing roster, widens the scope of the world with even more maps and locations, and adds a new Push match type in which two teams compete to guide a robot to their side’s objective. The sequel also introduces an enhanced UI, along with visual and engine upgrades that bring Earth’s battlefields and your favorite heroes to life in greater detail.
Overwatch 2 also renews Blizzard’s commitment to continue supporting the existing Overwatch community. Current Overwatch players will battle side-by-side with Overwatch 2 players in PvP multiplayer. In addition, current Overwatch players will be able to play Overwatch 2 heroes and maps, ensuring the core PvP experience remains dynamic and vital for today’s community in the Overwatch 2 era.
