The highly anticipated team-based multiplayer game makes a big change by going free-to-play. The Overwatch 2 player-versus-player formula changes slightly by losing one player on each team, making for five-versus-five combat. Shown in Sunday's reveal was the new hero for the game: the Junker Queen.
