Overwatch 2 revealed part of its “Invasion” update with new game modes, maps, and even detailed PvE modes at the 2023 Xbox Showcase.

There’s been a lot of confusion over what form the Overwatch PvE might take ever since Blizzard announced that the original content promised at the game’s announcement would not be taking the shape that had been advertised.

Despite assurances that there would still be PvE content coming in the form of Story Missions, Overwatch 2 players have consistently voiced their frustration about the change, which many feeling that the sequel was no longer justified as a standalone game.

Overwatch 2 reveals new trailer for PvE content and new hero

However, the latest trailer shows detailed PvE gameplay that could go a long way in reassuring players that the game’s future content, announced in the roadmap, will satisfy the PvE itch.

The new missions, titled “Rise of Null Sector”, features Winston, Mei, Tracer, and some other fan-favorite Overwatch 2 characters fighting off the global invasion of Null Sector, a sect of Omnics threatening the safety of everyone.

They were also spotted kidnapping Omnics as they razed Earth’s cities, with the reason behind these abductions unknown. The event will bring with it 3 missions, and players can expect to unfurl at least some of the secrets behind Null Sector’s motivation.

We also saw some more of the announced updates for the next few seasons, including a new hero, a new PvP mode, the firing range, and much more. Overwatch 2: Invasion is set to be massive.

The trailer also announced that the new content would be dropping on August 10, so there’s still a couple of months to go before we can test out the new content.
