Overwatch 2: Talon-specific PvE Missions

Overwatch 2 is keeping its powder dry on some big updates, but the Overwatch 2 devs are hinting that Talon-specific PvE missions are on the way, giving the Talon heroes a chance to shine in the FPS game's cooperative player-versus-environment mode. An upcoming update for Overwatch 2 is looking to expand the lore and gameplay opportunities for the Talon faction as a whole, providing players with a new perspective and gameplay experience in the process.

We all know the Overwatch 2 villains as rather, erm, villainous. But what motivates them? What are their objectives? What are their hopes and dreams? The answer, of course, is global domination, but what does that look like on a day-to-day basis? These are all questions that the Overwatch 2 developers are aiming to answer with this addition.

"We're excited to explore the potential of Talon-specific missions," Overwatch 2's executive producer Andy Toynes says. "Giving players the opportunity to play as the villains for a change gives us the chance to tell new and exciting stories within Overwatch 2's universe."

The Talon heroes are nothing if not unique, and their abilities and playstyles are already pretty special in Overwatch 2. Putting them in a PvE mission would allow Blizzard to highlight that uniqueness and show off just what these heroes are capable of.

This is just one of several Overwatch 2 updates that we're expecting to see in the near future, but it's a big one. The developers are clearly excited about the potential of these Talon-specific missions, and I'm certain I'm not the only person who is looking forward to seeing how they turn out.
