Overview and new additions to Overwatch 2

Overwatch & Overwatch 2

  • The progression of a player, achievements, records & cosmetics, will be carried forward to Overwatch 2.
  • The original Overwatch & Overwatch 2 players will fight together in PvP.
  • All Overwatch 2 maps & heroes will release for both games.

Story Mode

With Overwatch 2 Blizzard aims to bring what many players have asked for in Overwatch. The story takes place a few years after the Recall cinematic in which Winston initiates a recall for Overwatch.

  • Play together with friends to finish story missions.
  • Every mission will have an intro cinematic and an outtro cinematic.
  • Every mission will tell a specific story with predefined heroes, so not all characters will be playable during a mission.

Hero Missions

Hero Missions are short randomized missions you can do with your friends to level up your heroes and earn powerful customizations.

Hero levelling

In Overwatch 2 PvE players will be able to level up their heroes to be able to choose different talents to better help their PvE progression.
