The official release date of the Overwatch sequel in the Philippines has been revealed.

Filipino gamers will be able to play Overwatch 2 starting October 5, 2022, at 3 AM Philippine time. The best part is, the game will be free-to-play.

5-versus-5 teams

The sequel will feature new dynamic PvP content and will be available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and the new Xbox Series X and S and PlayStation 5.

It will come with a five-versus-five multiplayer format, cross-platform play, and cross-platform progression. Overwatch 2 will also have new heroes, hero reworks, modes, maps, and of course, premium cosmetics.

Midtown New York map


A couple of new locations will be available upon launch. That includes the snowy New Queen Street in Toronto, Canada, and busy Midtown Manhattan.

Overwatch 2 will also have a Push game mode, which uses a symmetrical map type so teams can fight to take control and advance into the enemy territory.

Activision also announced new competitive and shoutcaster programs that are LGBTQ+ friendly to make it more inclusive.

However, some might dislike the hero grind as you can only access locked heroes by doing it. Still, a couple of early reviews we’ve seen praised its solid team-based gameplay. We’ll learn more about it once it comes out in a couple of days.
