Overwatch 2 Unveiled With Enhanced Visuals, Cooperative PvE And Gameplay Looks Dope

Kaplan also said that anyone who owns the original Overwatch game will still receive all balance patches, updates, new heroes and other multiplayer content to prevent dividing the community.

At long last, Blizzard finally announced a "supercharged sequel" to Overwatch during BlizzCon 2019 (along with Diablo IV, in case you missed the news).

As you can see from the trailer above, new areas like the Ashworld Cemetery and Tamoe Mountain have been added to the game.

Players of the original game will be able to carry their unlocks over to the sequel.

In this mode, players can level up their heroes and earn customisation options that improve their abilities in co-op play-such as altering Reinhardt's Fire Strike to ignite nearby enemies or modifying Tracer's Pulse Bomb to cause a devastating chain reaction.

Blizzard lastly introduced the existence of Overwatch 2 after weeks of hypothesis from followers and rumors circulating everywhere in the web concerning leaks of the sport's existence.

Overwatch 2 will possess a brand new core sport mode known as Push, residence in Toronto, which is ready to be playable on the display hide flooring this weekend. Watch both cinematic and gameplay trailers above. Frankly, we're not even sure how the game will be monetized - Blizzard might treat it as a completely stand-alone experience, or maybe it will be a paid expansion for the core Overwatch game.

This is truly an exciting day for fans of Blizzard games, but Sojourn's announcement is truly a win for representation of minorities in video games. "The routes end up having a lot of flanking in them", Kaplan said in response to a question from ESPN. Players of Overwatch and Overwatch 2 will play on the same PvP servers with the same maps and the same characters.

The Opening Ceremony starts at 6pm GMT (11am PT) and will probably lean heavily on any new content being worked on.

Overwatch 2 is set to delve deep into the game's lore, with players working together to complete story-based PvE missions. So what we're hoping to do with Overwatch 2 is really redefine what a sequel means.

Among all of the news breaking at BlizzCon 2019, Sojourn was announced as the next hero.

From what we can tell, Overwatch 2 appears to be an upgrade or expansion of the original Overwatch.
