How Much Will Overwatch 2 Cost?

The Overwatch 2 price is a big point of concern for fans eagerly awaiting the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment’s 6v6 shooter, and they shouldn’t have to wait long, but the question remains – how much will Overwatch 2 cost?

Overwatch 1 was released way back in 2016, and the Standard Edition launched at a price point of $39.99. It’s rather unlikely that Overwatch 2 price will meet this same cost though. Thanks to inflation and the rising price of new releases, it’s more likely to be around $60/£50, as the next-gen games typically are.

Overwatch 2’s exclusive PVE content - taking on the form of hundreds of Story and Hero Missions - is a big part of this new price point, so how much is Overwatch 2?

 

Is Overwatch 2 Going To Be Free?

It is unlikely that Overwatch 2 will be completely free, but as both OW and OW2 players will be able to play in the same matchmade lobbies, the PVP portion of the game will continue to be free if you own Overwatch.

You don’t need to buy Overwatch 2 to play the OW2 new PVP modes and maps, as they will be updated in the original title also. However, for PVE content, Overwatch 2 will have to be purchased at the possible price point of $60+. You can currently purchase the standard edition of Overwatch on Battle.net for £16.99, so the Overwatch 2 price is fairly affordable for people just wanting to jump into the multiplayer component. 

Will Overwatch 2 Be Free If You Have Overwatch?

Not quite. If you own Overwatch 1, all the new maps of OW2 and PVP battles will be available to you, as will being able to play multiplayer with Overwatch 2 friends. The two games will always be compatible, as OW will receive all upcoming PVP updates that Overwatch 2 implements.

That's all for our primer on the Overwatch 2 price, and now you know how much Overwatch 2 will cost, depending on if you just want access to the multiplayer or the PvE component.
