Discover a World Turned Over – the Mirrorwatch Event Begins Today

The familiar transforms into the unexpected when you embark on a journey through the looking glass with Mirrorwatch, Overwatch 2's latest limited-time event, now available through May 13. You’re invited to explore this parallel reality where the line between good and evil blurs as heroes and villains switch sides.

Glimpse into the Mirror

In this limited-time, non-canon event, Overwatch 2 introduces players to a mirrored universe where familiar faces adopt new personas, alignments, and abilities. You’ll be playing a 5v5 role queue in a world where Mercy leads Talon with a powerful rocket launcher, and Doomfist rallies Overwatch with a new Power Block shield. Try out the new Mirrorwatch event, where heroes swap teams and players must adapt to a whole new dynamic of gameplay.

In Mirrorwatch, not only are heroes swapping sides, but they’re also equipped with entirely reimagined abilities to reflect their new alignments. Experience your favorite characters in a whole new light as they wield powers of their alternate personas.
