As previously reported, Overwatch 2 will feature season updates every nine weeks and a Battle Pass that will offer up new heroes, game modes, maps, and cosmetics. Meanwhile, the in-game shop will be “consistently updated” with fresh items, but unlike the original game, loot boxes aren’t part of the equation.
Overwatch 2 Season 1 will add Sojourn, Junker Queen, and unannounced support Hero, as well as extra maps and modes.
We’re also releasing a reimagined competitive experience that was created to give players more tools to improve gameplay and feel a sense of progression in competitive play.
Overwatch 2 is set to launch on October 4, 2022 in Early Access for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
