A few weeks ago, Activision Blizzard expressed a desire to ditch Battle.net exclusivity and bring their games to Steam, one of the most popular launchers on the PC market. The first game that came out on the Valve platform was nothing more and nothing less than Overwatch 2.
That’s right, the popular free-to-play hero shooter is now available for download on Steam. The debut coincides with the start of Season 6, which is the most ambitious yet, as it introduces a new game mode, 3 story missions, a new heroine, a battle pass with tons of cosmetic items, and more news than is already available or coming in the next few months.
Now what do you need to play Overwatch 2 on the Valve platform? How to download for free? How do I link my Battle.net account to keep my progress? Next, we will answer these questions.

Overwatch 2 is already on Steam!
First of all, keep in mind that the free-to-play game is available on both Steam and Battle.net on PC, so players who prefer the Blizzard Entertainment Launcher won’t have to switch to the Valve platform. Of course, in both cases, as well as on consoles, you must have a Battle.net account to play.
The good news is that the game is cross-platform, so progress is shared across all versions. This way you can play on the platform of your choice without fear of losing your skins and other cosmetic items.
Now, how to link a Steam account and Battle.net? It’s very simple. You just need to follow these steps:
- 1.- Log in to Battle.net and go to the “Settings” tab.
- 2.- Visit the “Connections” section, find Steam and click “Connect”.
- 3.- Enter your Steam username and password to login.
- 4.- If everything went well, a success message will appear
- 5.- Click “Continue” to complete the linking process.
Of course, you’d better be very careful and choose the right accounts you want to link. If you make a mistake, you will have to wait a year to repeat this process.
Now all you have to do is search Overwatch 2 on Steam and download it completely free to start playing.
