Seasons full of new content
Overwatch will continue to evolve and grow with regular seasonal content rolling out every nine weeks. And, starting in 2023, we’ll delve deeper into the world of Overwatch and the heroes who inhabit it with new narrative experiences and PvE gameplay updates.
With the new Battle Pass system, you’ll be able to unlock themed cosmetic items and complete weekly challenges for unique rewards. Instead of relying on Loot Box luck, you’ll be able to choose how you want to invest and progress to new content throughout each season.
With cross-progression enabled, all of your unlocks, progress, and rewards will transfer seamlessly to any device you’re actively playing on.
Take the fight to new destinations
Overwatch 2 will be a true globetrotting experience. Toronto, New York, Rome, and Monte Carlo will come into play on October 4, along with two new maps.
Battle through the streets of Rio, the iconic Brazilian city and home base of everyone’s favorite DJ, Lucio. And travel to Portugal, a new Push map that transports players to another dynamic and inspired environment to experience the new game mode. Overwatch 2 will regularly roll out more maps so there’s always a new place to fight.
Along with cosmetic updates, Overwatch 2 will also launch with reworked competitive gameplay.
A revamped scoreboard system will provide players with more detailed information throughout matches as well as an after action report once the match is over.
Skill ratings will no longer update immediately after each game, but will instead wait until after seven wins to evaluate and update. And instead of a numerical skill rating, each skill level will contain five sublevels ranked from highest to lowest.
Are you here for the glory? Stay tuned for more details regarding Competitive 2.0.
