The convention will be free to watch.
Overwatch 2 will be a competitive PvP shooter, much like its predecessor. It will included expansions to the lore and world with a story focus mode. New maps, modes, and heroes will also be available for the competitive mode . These will also be made available for free on the original Overwatch game.
