Overwatch 2 has had its closed PvP beta out for a little while now, providing everyone invited with an avenue to try the next big step for the colossal Activision Blizzard hero shooter. The first big opportunity to see the game and all its changes, this beta marks an important moment for the sequel. After all, everyone knows that first impressions are hard to shake.
Dorrani, our in-house Overwatch player and video creator was one of the select few invited. Embedded above, he’s wrapped up all his impressions around six minutes of Overwatch 2 beta footage. Be sure to give it a watch for the perspective of a longtime fan of the series trying out the next major instalment.
First things first, it’s hard to ignore the fact that the game looks incredibly similar to the original Overwatch, with an almost identical selection of characters and maps. That being said, taking a closer look at the more intricate changes to each character, as well as graphical improvements reveal where much of the work has been done.
