About Overwatch 2
Overwatch 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. In the game, each player controls one of three heroes who can perform various actions such as attack, heal, and protect teammates.
Heroes are divided into three roles: Offense, Support, and Tank. Offense heroes deal with direct physical attacks, whereas support heroes provide buffs and healing to allies and enemies. Finally, tanks specialize in protecting their partners and absorbing incoming enemy attacks.
The original Overwatch was developed for six-player teams, with two of each character type on a single squad. In Overwatch 2, the maximum player count was reduced from 6 to 5, meaning fewer characters can play together simultaneously. While the goal was to make the experience faster, the change caused issues in the matchmaking process.
To address these problems, Blizzard added a new ” Ping ” feature, which allows the player to call out where they’d like their allies to focus their attention. They can also see how much healing their teammates have received during the round.
Blizzard officially revealed the title, which will be a new standalone shooter set in an alternate universe from the first title. The game was released in October 2022 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. More About Overwatch 2.
