After 6 years of intense activity, Overwatch closes its doors, as Overwatch 2 is intended to replace the original gaming experience with a new and modified one. Recall that the new chapter, arriving on October 4, is distributed as free-to-play containing free or paid battle passes and with the possibility of unlocking various in-game content and rewards.
On the occasion of the official closure of Overwatch, Blizzard invited users to share memories on Twitter best related to the first chapter, while various rewards will be up to the veterans of this within the new version of the game.
Overwatch 2 will therefore be available from tomorrow, October 4, 2022on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and Nintendo Switch, containing new modes such as the basic one with teams of 5 players and new characters, starting with Kiriko who was the protagonist of a new video diary of her own these days, in addition to the trailer on the new Esperança map.
