During the Overwatch 2 gameplay reveal event, Blizzard Entertainment released new gameplay footage and all new information for the upcoming free-to-play multiplayer FPS Overwatch 2, including the content roadmap, details on the new playable hero Junker Queen, and more. Additionally, Blizzard announced the game’s beta will begin on June 28 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net, with sign-ups now available via the game’s official website. Overwatch 2 will launch in Early Access for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 4.

The game’s details and content roadmap via the official website and PlayStation Blog can be seen below:

A Free-to-Play, Live Experience

Making Overwatch 2 free-to play is a natural step forward for our game and our players. Overwatch, even since its debut, has always been a social game, and our community has always has the most fun when we come together. Free-to-play removes the barrier to entry, allowing anyone, anywhere to jump into the game, group up with friends, or find people to play with online. Along with this shift to free-to-play, we’ll be adding cross–progression, enabling everyone to play, progress, and access their unlocked content seamlessly across all game platforms.

There will be no Loot Boxes in Overwatch 2. Instead, the modernized live service will give our players the power to shape their own experiences. Players can acquire the items they want directly through the Battle Pass and an all-new and consistently updated in-game shop. Our team will create and deliver seasonal content every nine weeks to ensure there’s always something fresh and exciting waiting for everyone.
