About The Guide

What Parents and Carers Need to Know about Overwatch 2

Published 26th October 2022

A free online safety guide on Overwatch. 

A long-awaited sequel to 2016’s massively successful Overwatch, this is a futuristic shooting game with a focus on teamwork and strategy which gives it an extra dimension to the majority of titles in the genre. Its cast of characters is diverse and memorable, while there’s a definite (and rewarding) learning curve to players improving their skill. Created by established developers Blizzard Entertainment, Overwatch 2 is free to play, with an emphasis on competitive multiplayer action – meaning that children may want to play the game even more simply because their friends have it. 

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as violent gameplay, in-game purchases and voice chat.
