During its BlizzCon 2019 opening ceremony, Blizzard unveiled Overwatch 2, confirming the information published by ESPN in October. It has got new maps, new heroes, and a new story mode, expanding on the narrative foundation Blizzard's been building with its character cinematics.

Earlier the team-based first-person shooter game was multiplayer-only, with the story told primarily outside the game but the game is expected to alter that, pulling the story back into the game with a long-awaited story mode.

Despite introducing a story mode, Blizzard isn’t dropping the competitive multiplayer mode. The game is also getting a new map type called Push, where two teams fight over control of a robot that pushes two barriers back and forth across the map. The team which pushes farther into the other's territory wins.

Like all other PvP content in Overwatch 2, Push maps are also coming to Overwatch 1. Since Overwatch 1 is receiving all of the PvP updates coming in Overwatch 2, the two games will be completely compatible where Overwatch 2 players can party up with Overwatch 1 players like they always have.


The cinematics for the game begins with the reassembled crew dropping into Paris to fight a Null Sector invasion. Notably, a few heroes clearly have new looks and new abilities. Overwatch 2's website and panels have revealed a few latest maps coming with the sequel like Monte Carlo, Toronto, Gothenburg and Rio De Janeiro.
