Blizzard has revealed some brand new gameplay footage for Overwatch 2. This video showcases 5v5 gameplay on the new map New York. This is the first gameplay of 5v5 and is played on the payload game mode fans of Overwatch should be familiar with.
Overwatch 2 will introduce significant engine upgrades that support larger maps for co-op (PvE) play. Furthermore, it will add a wide variety of new enemies and factions that players will encounter on their missions. The game also introduces visual enhancements designed to bring players’ favorite heroes—and their new looks for Overwatch 2 —to life in greater detail.
Overwatch 2 also represents the beginning of a new era for the series’ world-renowned competitive 6v6 play. In addition to carrying forward all of the original game’s heroes, maps, and modes—as well as existing Overwatch players’ accomplishments and loot collections—the sequel adds multiple new playable heroes to the ever-growing roster. Moreover, it will widen the scope of the world with even more maps and locations. Overwatch 2 will also add a new Push map type. In this map, two teams compete to make a robot to push the map’s objective to their opponent’s side.
The game will also allow current Overwatch players will battle side-by-side with Overwatch 2 players in PvP multiplayer. In addition, current Overwatch players will be able to play Overwatch 2 heroes and maps. As such, the core PvP experience remains dynamic and vital for today’s community in the Overwatch 2 era.
There is currently no ETA on when Overwatch 2 will come out.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
