Free-to-Play Overwatch 2 Early Access Begins October 4

Blizzard Entertainment revealed their long anticipated Overwatch sequel, Overwatch 2, will release on Oct. 4 as a free-to-play early access title on PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series, Switch and PC.

In addition to the release date and pricing details, new hero, The Junker Queen, was confirmed for Overwatch 2.

Featuring a new five-versus-five multiplayer format with cross-platform play and cross-platform progression, Overwatch 2‘s player-versus-player experience is designed to offer incredible and fresh competitive gameplay with a new, free-to-play model and major game updates such as new heroes, hero reworks, maps, modes, and premium cosmetics.

At launch, players will have an opportunity to get their hands on the newest tank hero to join the roster, the ruthless Australian-born ruler of Junkertown: the Junker Queen. More details on the Junker Queen, Overwatch 2‘s live service model and seasonal content plan, and the upcoming phase of the game’s closed beta testing will be shared during the Overwatch 2 Reveal Event livestream on or this Thursday, June 16, at 10:00 a.m. PDT.

The Junker Queen is the second new hero revealed for Overwatch 2, and the franchise’s 34th hero overall, following Sojourn—a high-mobility and railgun-wielding former Overwatch captain with cybernetic capabilities. New and iconic international locations will also arrive in-game at launch, from the snowy New Queen Street in Toronto to the bustle of Midtown Manhattan. Overwatch 2 additionally introduces the new Push game mode, a symmetrical map type where teams battle to take control and advance a centrally-located robot deeper into enemy territory than the opposing team.
