Overwatch 2: Invasion Story Missions
The invasion of Paris by the rogue Omnic group, Null Sector, was depicted in the “Zero Hour” cinematic. Thanks to the efforts of heroes like Winston, Tracer, Mei, and others, the city was saved from destruction. However, this was just the beginning of a global invasion. Null Sector continues to wreak havoc, targeting Omnics for mysterious purposes. The new Overwatch team must uncover their plans and put an end to their reign of terror. To achieve this, they will need assistance from old allies and new comrades.
Overwatch 2: Invasion offers three thrilling story missions set in Rio de Janeiro, Toronto, and Gothenburg. These expansive maps feature intricate objectives and a captivating storyline that will guide players through their missions. The intensified forces of Null Sector will relentlessly attack until they are completely dismantled. Players should be prepared to face new and formidable enemies, including the powerful Artillery and the deadly Stalkers. The Overwatch 2: Invasion Bundle, priced at $15, grants players:
- Permanent access to the three story missions
- 1,000 Overwatch Coins (equivalent to the Premium Battle Pass, valued at $10 USD)
- A new Legendary skin for Sojourn (valued at $19 USD), and permanent access to Sojourn as a playable hero upon completing Story Mission challenges
- The Overwatch 2: Invasion bundle aims to provide both new and veteran players with the opportunity to experience this exciting new story arc. Additionally, it offers additional coins to unlock the Premium Battle Pass or purchase cosmetic content for their favorite heroes.
Players also have the option to upgrade to the Overwatch 2: Ultimate Invasion Bundle for $40 USD. This bundle includes all the features mentioned above, plus:
- The Null Sector Premium Battle Pass with 20 Battle Pass skips (valued at $30 USD)
- An additional 1,000 Overwatch Coins, bringing the total to 2,000 Overwatch Coins (valued at $20 USD)

All New Co-Op Events
In addition to the Story Missions, players can partake in a new bonus co-op mission set in King’s Row – Underworld. This mission takes players to previously unexplored areas of the King’s Row map as they guide a well-armed TS-1 push bot in a mission to rescue Iggy and other Omnic inhabitants of the Underworld from Null Sector. The mission features new objectives and familiar, yet challenging, enemies from Null Sector.
Introducing Flashpoint: A Thrilling PvP Mode
With the release of Overwatch 2: Invasion, players can also enjoy the new PvP mode, Flashpoint. This mode is available in both Quick Play and Competitive Play and introduces two expansive PvP maps, the largest in Overwatch 2 to date. Teams will battle to control key positions called “flashpoints,” aiming to capture three of them before their opponents. The action is fast-paced, leaving no time for rest once a point is captured. Planning ahead and preventing opponents from reaching the next flashpoint will be crucial for victory.
Master Your Skills with Hero Mastery Mode
Introducing a new approach to honing your skills, Overwatch 2: Invasion presents Hero Mastery mode. Each hero will have specially designed training courses that test players’ abilities with their unique skill sets. Hero Mastery mode includes global leaderboards to showcase the top-performing hero masters around the world. The first set of courses will be available for select heroes, with more to come in future seasons. Additionally, the Practice Range receives a major update with a brand-new firing range, featuring various practice settings and multiple targets to assist players in refining their aim with any hero.
