Overwatch 2 - Flashpoint

In addition to the first three PvE story missions, Overwatch 2 will receive a new PvP mode in Season 6: Invasion with Flashpoint. It’s a core playlist which launches with three maps, and a new one, Suravasa, has been revealed via Twitter. Set in India, it’s situated across from a river and even has a Shambali temple.

As for the mode itself, Flashpoint is about fighting over three positions on the map (dubbed flashpoints). Five flashpoints are present in each map, and once a team has captured one, the next becomes available. The first team to capture three flashpoints wins. It sounds vaguely like King of the Hill, and like that mode, the order in which flashpoints become active is random.

The other Flashpoint map that we know about is New Junk City. Stay tuned for more details on the third map in the coming weeks. Overwatch 2: Invasion goes live on August 10th and adds a new Support hero. Hero Mastery is also coming, but will be available later in the season.
