Blizzard hosted an Overwatch 2 PvP livestream today, showing even more gameplay footage of the game, as well as detailing some of the biggest changes players can expect in the sequel. One of the biggest changes is that team sizes will be reduced from six to five.
This means that ideally, you’ll have one tank, two supports, and two DPS characters on each team. This should change up team fights pretty significantly.
In addition to that, the tank and support characters are also getting some sorely needed buffs. For starters, all tank characters will take less damage, allowing them to survive longer and actually protect their team. Support characters will also get passive healing effects, which will make it easier to keep the team alive.
These changes all seem to be done in favor of making it easier to work with your teammates and support them, which will be a nice change going into the sequel.
There’s no set release date for Overwatch 2 just yet, but we’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way.
