Overwatch 2

PvP is going to be a big draw of Overwatch 2 whenever it launches, but Blizzard are also putting a lot of emphasis on PvE with the upcoming sequel. At the time of the game’s reveal, the developer called its story-centric PvE content “a complete story experience like you would expect from any AAA blockbuster game.”

Recently, the game’s director Jeff Kaplan talked up the PvE content once again, saying that Overwatch 2’s PvE will be “full-featured” with a “full set of story missions”, before also talking about the game’s replayable Hero missions

“We’re introducing full-featured PvE that will include a complete ‘story experience’ with a full set of story missions pushing the narrative of Overwatch forward through gameplay for the first time,” Kaplan told GamesRadar. “We’re also working on a highly replayable cooperative feature we call Hero Missions that will be powered by a progression system that will allow each hero to level up and gain new powers.”

Blizzard have previously also talked about how they plan to use Overwatch 2 to expand the universe in unique and interesting ways, such as allowing players to experience its story content through a variety of characters

Overwatch 2 is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Blizzard have previously said that they have “no idea” when the game will be out- though a recent leak may have inadvertently given things away.
