For Overwatch 2, Blizzard will publish new details on the online offshoot of its own BlizzCon, BlizzConline, in the coming year. Game Director Jeff Kaplan announced this in a new developer update. In addition, the new Free-4-All-Map Kanezaka was revealed.
At BlizzCon 2019, the Californians announced the successor to the tactical team shooter Overwatch and distributed initial information about the concept of the game. Now fans can look forward to further details that the developers want to publish as part of the online fair “BlizzConline”. Due to the pandemic situation, the in-house trade fair will take place as a virtual event - probably on February 19 and 20, 2021
Overwatch 2 relies on PvP and PvE
One of the central innovations at Overwatch 2 is the PvE mode with its own campaign, in which up to four players can take part at the same time. There will be reunion with the characters Tracer, Mei, Lucio and Reinhardt - each with different, adaptable skills. Also included are hero characters like Sojourn.
The core mode is probably again player-versus-player: There are then new maps - Jeff Kaplan has now revealed one of them in a video - as well as new game modes, of which “Push” is known so far. With the support of their team members, players have to escort a robot into the opposing starting zone.
If you already own the first part of the game, you can take your earned content, such as achievements or emotes, with you in Overwatch 2. Blizzard remains true to the line of wanting to form an Overwatch community. Owners of both versions will be able to play together or against each other.
Overwatch 2 is currently under development and there is no fixed release date for the game yet. The successor will be released for PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The versions for the new power consoles are not yet known, but there may also be new information on this at BlizzConline 2021.
