Overwatch 2 beta: release date, characters, maps and mode

The Overwatch 2 beta is almost here, ending a two-year content shortage. Overwatch hasn’t had a major update since adding the hero Echo in April 2020. Since then, the wait for the sequel has been long.

Rather than waiting for the PvE side of Overwatch 2 to be completed, Blizzard is allowing players to try out the PvP content before the game’s full release. The big change from the original Overwatch is that it’s now 5v5 instead of 6v6 with teams consisting of one tank, two damage and two support players.
