Overwatch 2: Invasion Has Arrived Experience new Invasion story missions in OW2, a new support hero, new cosmetic skins and rewards, and new ways to play. Read on for a closer look at the new Suravas map and all that this beautiful green haven in the heart of India has to offer.
Discover the exotic gardens of Suravasa
Overwatch 2 already offers us beautiful temples in the Nepal, Ayutthaya and Busan areas, but Surawas Gardens is one of the biggest and most complex maps we’ve ever created for Overwatch and we hope it captures your imagination.
One of the key elements in the creation of Suravasa was water. The map has the most water art effects of any map in Overwatch 2. The environment art interweaves paths filled with waterfalls, fountains, aqueducts, and ponds. However, watch where you step or you risk falling into lagoons filled with lizards that live there.
The huge design of the Suravasa is accentuated by five different flashpoints (more on that later), each with its own unique characteristics. This will be a race to the market in the center of the map to capture it before the enemy does. But in Suravas, you won’t have time to linger to smell the beautiful gardens, as one of the remaining flashpoints will open randomly and both teams will have to race to get to it.
Flashpoint brings you non-stop action like you’ve never seen before.
Overwatch 2 is not only about destroying opponents. Overwatch 2’s fast-paced gameplay features four different game modes that will take you through a variety of tasks. This may be the need to escort cargo or capture an area of the map before your opponents. In Flashpoint, we’ve taken some of the funniest mechanics from other modes and created a consistent combat that will challenge players of all skill levels. Teams will meet at each Flashpoint to try to capture it before the enemy. When one of the teams captures the Flashpoint, it will be a non-stop firefight, as the next one will unlock before it can stop. Whoever manages to capture three Flashpoints wins!
Suravasa and the Flashpoint game mode are available in free play today and will be available in competitive play later.
Destroy your opponents with the new support, Illari.
Overwatch 2 features over 30 heroes in three different roles. Tank heroes that dominate the front line damage heroes from the flank to deal massive damage, and support heroes that help the team with their healing abilities and other usefulness. Joining us in Overwatch 2: Invasion is our new support hero, Illari. What sets Illari apart from other supports is that she has abilities that focus on using damage to heal her team while dominating the enemy.
As the last survivor of a group of protective warriors named Inti, she can use the power of the sun to attack her enemies and aid her allies.
Armed with her powerful solar rifle, she fires solar beams that deal high-precision damage but can also heal her teammates. You can also place your healing tower to keep your allies alive on target or in sticky situations. To avoid a dangerous situation, her Explosion ability knocks back opponents and carries her to safety.
Each hero has an Ultimate Ability that charges during the game and can change the course of the battle at any time. So when things go wrong, her Captive Sun ability fires a massive ball of solar energy, stunning opponents and leaving them vulnerable to deadly explosions if they take too much damage. Players with high skills will be able to combine Captive Sun with their teammates’ ultimate abilities to create deadly combinations that will send the opposing team back to the starting point.
When you first play Overwatch 2, you have access to a list of heroes to choose from in battle, but you can unlock Illari right away with the Invasion Premium Battle Pass for just 1,000 Overwatch Coins available right now in the in-game store! If you’re new to Overwatch 2, you’ll also be able to unlock Illari with the Complete Hero Collection, which immediately gives you access to every hero in the game, including every Overwatch 2 hero, 3 legendary and 3 epic skins to choose from, 1,000 Overwatch Coins to use during in-game store and 1500 credits to unlock additional cosmetic content in the hero gallery.
