The excitement of playing Overwatch 2 with friends can quickly turn into frustration if you encounter the ‘different version error.’ We’ve compiled a straightforward fix to this issue that will have you grouping up with friends in no time.

Overwatch 2 has been around for a while and introduced a completely new standard 5v5 format, a handful of new Heroes, and tons of reworked abilities and base skins for those Heroes.

Sadly, the game’s launch was intially plagued with errors both logging in, dropping from matches and not being able to invite players on your friend list to your lobby.

Luckily we have a fix for the different version error which has been bothering players since the game first launched.
