Overwatch 2 will be free to play

New game will enter Early Access program this October

Posted on

Activision Blizzard have announced that Overwatch 2 is launching in early access on October 4, 2022.

The sequel has a new five-versus-five multiplayer format with cross-platform play and cross-platform progression, along with a new, free-to-play model and major game updates such as new heroes, hero reworks, maps, modes, and premium cosmetics.

At launch, players will have an opportunity to get their hands on the newest tank hero to join the roster, the Australian-born ruler of Junkertown: the Junker Queen. More details on the Junker Queen, Overwatch 2’s live service model and seasonal content plan, and the upcoming phase of the game’s closed beta testing will be shared during the Overwatch 2 Reveal Event livestream on Thursday, June 16, at 10:00 a.m. PDT.

The Junker Queen is the second new hero revealed for Overwatch 2, and the franchise’s 34th hero overall, following Sojourn — a high-mobility and railgun-wielding former Overwatch captain with cybernetic capabilities.

Overwatch 2 additionally introduces the new Push game mode, a symmetrical map type where teams battle to take control and advance a centrally-located robot deeper into enemy territory than the opposing team.

Overwatch 2 is launching in early access on Windows PC and Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on October 4.
