BlizzCon 2019

Overwatch 2 announcement expected at BlizzCon 2019

With BlizzCon 2019 happening this coming weekend, the inevitable announcement leaks have started oozing through the seams. This time it’s some updates on Overwatch 2, confirmed by ESPN.

According to a BlizzCon 2019 demo guide provided to ESPN, Overwatch 2 will finally be putting all that world-building and character backstories, that never came up in the game, to good use with a focus on narrative-driven, PvE missions. At least one of these missions “will be a four-player story experience set in Rio de Janeiro”.

It also seems like this “story mode” will include a new Talents system, allowing you to unlock new skills for your heroes as they level-up. It’s not just about the new game mode, though, the existing multiplayer should be getting a new mode, too, called Push. We don’t know what it involves, yet, but it comes with a new map located in Toronto. There should be a new hero to look forward to, as well.

BlizzCon 2019 is taking place in California from 1 to 3 November, so expect an official update on all this Blizzard business next week.
