Overwatch 2 is something of a weird sequel, in that the multiplayer side of the game will merge with the original - lowering team-sizes to 5, updating the characters, and bringing new map and heroes into the mix. In that sense it feels more like Overwatch 2.0 -- until we get to see and hear more about the PvE side of things. Over the weekend, as part of the latest Overwatch League 2021 Season Grand Finals, we got our first exhibition game. And look at the all-new Bastion.
Who's now sporting a hat. In terms of changes the Bastion rework is pretty substantial. Bastion's Ultimate is changing to an artillery strike where you get to choose fire zones via an birds-eye view of the map. Also, Bastion can tank and move at the same time. Plus, Bastion's regular fire is becoming a sniper-rifle of sorts.
For a detailed rundown of the changes -- here's Blizzard's post.
Finally, there's the exhibition match that gives a good feel for Overwatch 2 from the competitive side -- and it definitely feels like a faster paced version of the original. But mainly, a lot like the Overwatch 2.0 mentioned earlier. The Overwatch 2 action begins at the 2 hour and 55 minute mark.
