Overwatch 2 launch time as per time zones
By the time Overwatch 2 goes live for free on October 4, it will have replaced the original game with a new look and a disputed battle pass.
The original game’s team-based tactics have been revamped with new characters, maps, and a mode, but we are still not sure that these modifications improve the game. New support hero Kiriko and 2,000 Overwatch Coins (its new premium currency) are included in the $40 optional Watchpoint Pack that grants access to the first season of the premium battle pass (opens in new tab). Probably the most divisive aspect in Overwatch 2 is the way heroes are unlocked (opens in new tab).
Despite being confirmed for 2019, Overwatch 2 will not have a PvE component until 2020. While Blizzard has promised a full talent tree system and significantly distinct abilities outside of PvP, these features will have to wait for the time being.
However, three new heroes—Sojourn (damage), Junker Queen (tank), and Kiriko—have been added to the player-versus-player mode (support). The Mythic Cyber Demon Genji skin is only one of several new cosmetics available in the game’s battle pass and in-game store. It is Blizzard’s intention to release brand new seasons (along with themed battle passes) every nine weeks (opens in new tab). In season 2, a brand-new tank hero will join the fray, and going forward, each season will alternate between introducing a new map and a brand-new character.
