Overwatch 2 is an online shooter which is a continuation of the hit from 2016. Both productions were developed by Blizzard Entertainment studio, which has also produced such series as Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo.

Plot

The game continues the story of the previous part and shows the further fate of the title organization Overwatch and its members and opponents. This time, the authors put much more emphasis on the script, offering more complex stories and more threads.

Mechanics

Just like the first part, Overwatch 2 is a network-focused shooter. We observe the events from the first-person perspective. The game offers a wide selection of heroes, each of whom has unique weapons and special abilities.

Compared to the first part, the authors extended the hero gallery with new characters and the veterans were thoroughly improved. In addition, gameplay is enriched by a development system that allows you to unlock additional skills.

Game modes

The production offers both games against other players (PvP) and cooperation mode (PvE), in which we have to face the artificial intelligence.

PvP skirmishes did not change much compared to the first part. Only a few characters and maps have been added, as well as a Push mode that resembles an Escort: one side must defend the robot pushing the charge through the maps, and the other side must destroy it.

A much bigger novelty are PvE clashes, which in the first part appeared only on the occasion of special events. Up to four players join forces and fight against hordes of opponents controlled by artificial intelligence. Cooperation takes place in two types of missions. Story Missions are feature-rich challenges, tell interesting stories, and offer impressive interactive sequences. Hero Missions, on the other hand, are short challenges designed to be overcome repeatedly without feeling tired.

Technical aspects

Overwatch 2 boasts a higher difficulty level and a larger scale of skirmishes.

An unusual element of the production is how the authors approached the previous part. Players of the first Overwatch get free access to all the new PvPs from Overwatch 2 and users of both games can play together. In addition, all progress from "one", including cosmetic items, can be transferred to Overwatch 2, while PvE content is reserved for sequel players only.
