Overwatch 2

Overwatch 2 is a team-based game at its core. Coordination is the end all, be all, necessity in this FPS/MOBA hybrid, as, without it, you can quickly get overrun.

So, if you're looking to play Overwatch 2 with some buddies but aren't quite sure how to accept a friend request or event send one out, we've got you covered.
