The next installment in the Diablo series has been announced at BlizzCon 2019.
So as not to split the playerbase, all the PvP updates that are coming in the sequel are also being released for the original game, meaning Overwatch 2 players can play with Overwatch 1 players. Competition is fierce, with games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, League of Legends, Dota 2, and so forth all drawing eyeballs, but Overwatch remains hugely popular with a large fan base. Overwatch 2 will add a brand new hero in Sojourn, alongside a number of new heroes over the course of the sport's lifespan. All of the original heroes are present and accounted for, and players can expect to see the same maps and modes.
Overwatch 2 will feature "action-packed cooperative Story Missions". Also new this year is the addition of Ultimate Abilities.
Overwatch 2 is an odd prospect for a sequel because in some ways it's a kind of update for the original game. Well, we thought about it, and for us as gamers, sequels make us nervous. "Not even "Blizzard soon", said director Luis Barriga. The brand new gameplay modes did not get quite a lot of airtime, although, so till extra stable particulars are revealed, gamers might want to stay cautiously optimistic about the way forward for the collection. You can already guess that the other one is Echo, whose drawings can be traced way back to Overwatch's concept art, but the company technically held back on the announcement.
All cosmetics and progress will come forward into the game, and Overwatch 1 and 2 players can play together in a shared multiplayer environment. The hype certainly high, and so are expectation.
One of the biggest stories out of BlizzCon so far (though it was leaked ahead of the conference) is the news that Overwatch is getting a sequel - one that focuses on story.
