With the news that Overwatch 2 PvP is to be ‘de-coupled’ from PvE, Blizzard also announced that a closed beta for Overwatch 2 was in the works. GameSpot Overwatch fans Lucy and Tamoor played the closed alpha for a number of hours and roped in their pal and Overwatch content creator Stylosa to chat about the big changes coming to the game.
First off the bat come the additions to the game, like new hero Sojourn, her abilities, and where she sits in the Overwatch damage heroes pool. Also discussed is the new mode Push, and whether or not it needs some tweaks before the game is launched, lest it goes the way of the 2cp game mode. The trio also discuss the changes Blizzard is making to heroes. Orisa, Bastion, and Doomfist have seen significant reworks, and other characters such as Cassidy have seen seemingly small, but meaningful changes. While there’s no word on an Overwatch 2 release date just yet, the closed beta kicks off on April 26.
