One of several big announcements from BlizzCon 2019 so far is the reveal of Overwatch 2 (opens in new tab), which we've been told will apparently keep all of the original game's heroes, maps, modes and yes, even your skins (opens in new tab), while adding PvE story missions, a new mode called Push, and some more heroes. BlizzCon attendees were told that Overwatch 2 would be playable right there at the show, and here's proof: Almost two hours of gameplay footage courtesy of YouTuber ohnickel (opens in new tab).

There's been an engine upgrade, which means you'll see some improvements to character models and larger maps, but it's basically the same Overwatch fans love, expanded.

We'll have more info about Overwatch 2 tomorrow, when we get a closer look at it. Follow all our BlizzCon 2019 coverage here (opens in new tab).

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
