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

The Overwatch 2 beta is nearing, putting an end to a two-year content drought. Overwatch hasn’t had a major update since the hero Echo was added back in April 2020. Since then, the wait for the sequel has been long.

Instead of waiting for the PvE side of Overwatch 2, Blizzard allows players to try out 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 of one tank, two damage, and two support players.
