Attention all Overwatch heroes! Monitor 2 take it out October 4 as an always-on, free experience. Team up with friends across all platforms and enjoy revamped 5v5 gameplay with all-new content rolling out seasonally. Daily challenges and frequent updates mean there’s always something exciting to discover!

Let’s break it down! Here’s a look at what’s coming in the game.

October 4 – Start of Season 1

  • Three new heroes: Sojourn, Junker Queen, and a support hero that has yet to be revealed

  • Five new maps: New York, Rome, Monte Carlo, Portugal and Rio

December 9 – Start of Season 2

Seasons full of new content

Overwatch will continue to evolve and grow with regular seasonal content scheduled to roll out every nine weeks. And, starting in 2023, the game will delve deeper into the world of Overwatch and the heroes who inhabit it with new narrative experiences and PvE gameplay updates.

The road ahead is full of brand new content and cosmetics. New heroes will be introduced for each role, providing new playstyles to challenge players. New maps will turn combat into a true globe-trotting experience. And new modes ensure a constant supply of new ways to play.

With the new Battle Pass system, you’ll be able to unlock themed cosmetic items and complete weekly challenges for rewards. Instead of relying on Loot Box luck, you’ll be able to choose how you want to invest and progress to new content throughout each season.

With cross-progression enabled, all of your unlocks, progress, and accolades will seamlessly transfer to where you choose to play.

Competitive 2.0

Along with aesthetic updates, Monitor 2 will also launch with a reworked competitive game.

A revamped scoreboard system will provide players with more detailed information throughout matches, as well as an after-action report once the match is over.

Skill ratings will now wait for up to seven kills to be evaluated and updated. And instead of a numerical skill rating, each skill level will contain five sublevels ranked from highest to lowest.
