Following the viewings, Blizzard revealed some of Overwatch 2’s new gameplay. Players can expect co-op hero missions, the ability to level-up heroes with talents, and customisable abilities. Plus, there are new PvP modes such as “Push” to look forward to. Some of the maps include Route 66, Paris, and new maps like Toronto.

Game director Jeff Kaplan said how Overwatch 2 will;

“feature a tone of PvE cotent. We will have a complete story experience, featuring story missions”.

It’s Overwatch, But With More

Furthermore, these story missions will play out a lot like Diablo’s adventure mode. Kaplan also added how Overwatch 2;

“will be a shared multiplayer environment where no one gets left behind”.

There’s a little more to that than just a general sense of camaraderie, however. Players from the original Overwatch will be able to bring all their cosmetics over to the new game as well. There’s certainly plenty for new and returning players to get their teeth into, however.
