Overwatch 2: Invasion's Story Missions Trailer Teases PvE Roster And Giant Robot Battles

After years of Overwatch players longing for story-based PvE missions, Blizzard is ready to deliver. With the launch of Overwatch 2’s sixth season, Invasion, comes the series’ push into storytelling with an all-new game mode: story missions. And, thanks to Overwatch 2: Invasion’s latest trailer, we now have a better idea as to what the first three entries in this new mode will entail.

The trailer begins with footage of three cities, Rio de Janeiro, Gothenburg, and Toronto, being evacuated. We then see Ramattra–Overwatch 2’s newest tank hero and the leader of the militant omnic liberation group, Null Sector–claim he is not waging war on these locations, but rather fighting for “liberation.” Winston declares there is something different about Null Sector this time around before the trailer cuts to Sojourn, who tells him that most of her city (Toronto) has been taken over by the organization. This seemingly builds off of Sojourn’s most recent cinematic, which ends with the former soldier readying up for battle against a fleet of enemy ships entering Toronto.

However, Sojourn isn’t the only one dealing with a full-scale invasion, as we see Lucio skate through an overrun Rio de Janeiro while Brigette and her father, Torbj√∂rn, struggle to hold down Gothenburg. In addition to these characters, the trailer also features Mei, Reinhardt, Genji, Mercy, Tracer, and Bastion. Considering Overwatch 2 developers have previously stated that story missions will utilize only a select number of heroes in an effort to meaningfully include them in the story and create something that makes narrative sense, it seems likely that these heroes will serve as the Invasion storyline’s roster.
