Blizzard has shown off an Overwatch 2 behind-the-scenes featurette and, as part of that, given fans a glimpse at new additions and improvements being made for the sequel. During the flurry of BlizzConline 2021 announcements, Blizzard showed a behind-the-scenes featurette video for Overwatch 2, which revealed new details about the game’s locations, playable heroes, and enemies.
In the presentation, we get our first look at two locations in the upcoming multiplayer-focused hero shooter: Rome and New York City. The former will be the setting for one of the maps for Push mode, one of the new additions in Overwatch 2. The Overwatch version of Rome was described as being created to reflect a romanticized notion of the location, especially through its architecture. It features the colosseum and the grand hills as a backdrop. New York, meanwhile, was described as being “authentic” but with an Overwatch spin. It has pizza places and small shops that evoke the Village. “It feels like something you haven’t seen in other games before because it is uniquely Overwatch,” a dev said.
Unlike its predecessor, Overwatch 2 will have both permanent PvP and PvE modes. In PvE, you’ll fight computer-controlled enemies, and the new featurette reveals what some of them will look like, such as Null Sector’s Stalker and Breacher. The featurette also provides more context for how progression, story and hero missions, and hero customization will work in Overwatch 2’s PvE. In this mode, you’ll have the flexibility to customize abilities to tweak them to your liking.
