Overwatch 2 Announce Cinematic “Zero Hour”
Stand together. When Null Sector attacks, Winston assembles a small strike team to fend off the invasion. But as hope begins to fade, the team must stand together to overcome the odds.
Overwatch 2 gameplay trailer:
Overwatch 2 is the globe-spanning sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed team-based game, building upon the original’s battle-honed foundation and carrying forward everything players have earned into a new era of epic competition and team play. Square off against rivals in PvP modes, and explore the Overwatch universe firsthand in all new, fully cooperative missions that challenge the world’s heroes to team up, power up, and take on an overwhelming outbreak of threats around the globe.
The rumor was true. There’s a new game mode called “Push,” new maps, new looks for the heroes, new talent/skills that can be unlocked, and we event get to see the newest hero added to the roster too!
No release date has been given yet, but we presume it’ll appear sometime in 2020 and be available on current-gen (or next-gen) platforms.
Are you excited for Overwatch 2 or does it look too similar to the first one so far?
