Overwatch was one of the biggest games of its time when a frenetic shooter hit consoles in 2016. That wasn’t surprising as once we got our hands on it we became just as addicted as anyone else – and the wide array of fun characters definitely helped draw people in.
So it’s good that Overwatch 2 is on its way, and it’s been a while, but the wait seems really long, and the developers have chosen to release it in phases starting with the early access beta that started this month and has over 1.5 million views on Twitch.
Here’s everything you need to know about the sequel, including the details of the new story mode!
What is the Overwatch 2 release date?
Is Overwatch 2 coming out? Yes it is, but we don’t know when!
An Overwatch 2 release date has not been confirmed, but 2023 It looks like the year Blizzard Entertainment developers have been looking forward to.
There was a lot of talk about it being released in 2020 but here we are two years later and we still haven’t seen the light of day. The last word is that 2022 is also unlikely, and now it’s coming out in 2023.
What consoles and platforms can I play Overwatch 2 on?
Like the original, Overwatch 2 is expected to launch on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows. But there is a new generation of consoles for this latest game and it will also release on both PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Can I pre-order Overwatch 2?
Surprisingly, yes, you can order Overwatch 2. UK retailer GAME is accepting pre-orders for Overwatch 2 now – just click this link, choose your platform, and place your order today!
Is Overwatch 2 free?
No, Overwatch 2 will not be a free game, as far as we know, even for players committed to the original Overwatch. The GAME product page mentioned above currently lists Overwatch 2’s price of £54.99 here in the UK, whether you’re playing on Xbox, PlayStation or PC. So this is a paid issue, basically!
What are you talking about Overwatch 2?
Overwatch is a first-person shooter in which two teams of six select a character with their unique abilities and then fight for objectives on different maps.
Overwatch 2 will build on this premise but will add new maps, a multiplayer tug-of-war mode called Push, and new heroes including Canadian gunslinger Sojourn and flying robot Echo.
After the introductory hero cinematic in the first game, Overwatch 2 will have a full story mode for the first time as part of the introduction to co-op modes. Four players will work together against computer-controlled opponents in Story Missions that expand the game’s lore, and Hero Missions where players battle waves of enemies.
Oddly enough, Overwatch 2 is not an average sequel as a lot of content will be added to the original. New heroes, maps, and some new modes will be added to the first Overwatch game for free, creating a co-op multiplayer environment which means players in both games can play against each other.
