We'll be playing the sequel of the popular competitive multiplayer game from 4 October 2022. In the same trailer, we got confirmation of a new hero, Junker Queen.

The given release date was classified as 'Early Access' which suggests there will be an edition of Overwatch 2 that comes with this access included. It also comes as no surprise that Overwatch 2 will be launching as free-to-play.
