PC PS4 XONE

Overwatch 2 is an online shooter and a sequel to the hit from 2016. Both games were developed by Blizzard Entertainment, which has also created 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 Overwatch organization and its members and opponents. This time, the devs put much more emphasis on the script, offering more complex stories and more threads.

Mechanics

Just like the first part, Overwatch 2 is an online shooter. We observe the events from 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 devs expanded the hero roster with new characters and the veterans were thoroughly improved. In addition, gameplay is enriched by a progression system that enables us to unlock additional skills.

Game modes

The game offers both PvP and co-operation mode, 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 the Escort: one side must defend the robot pushing the cargo 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 AI-controlled opponents. Cooperation takes place in two types of missions. Story Missions are narrative-rich challenges, tell interesting stories, and offer impressive interactive sequences. Hero Missions, on the other hand, are short challenges designed to be completed repeatedly without feeling tired.

Technical aspects

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

An unusual element of the game is how the devs approached the previous part. Players of the first Overwatch get free access to all the new PvP events from Overwatch 2 and users of both games can play together. In addition, all progress from the first game, including cosmetic items, can be transferred to Overwatch 2, while PvE content is reserved exclusively for players of the second game.
