After an entertaining free-to-play launch for Overwatch 2, developer Blizzard Entertainment went straight to work on the new Invasion mode for the new game. And whilst the team rolled out content seasons periodically, everything leads up to the new update this week as the story thickens. Elsewhere recently, we saw this with Overwatch: Genesis – a short, three- part animated series that expands the core of the story centered around Overwatch.
Additionally, Blizzard Entertainment has pressed on what is coming for the game too. In that, whilst Invasion is primed to launch, it is rethinking its approach for the PvEvP experience underway for Overwatch 2. Ultimately, its to meet the same level of quality the multiplayer is at. Even more is the transition to Steam as Overwatch 2 will pioneer Blizzard titles hitting the platform this week too.
On Thursday, Overwatch officially launches its new Invasion mode along that is the new Hero, Illari. You can watch the trailer in the video below:
