Overwatch 2 is available not only on PC but also on consoles: PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. Sony console owners may be wondering if they need a PS Plus subscription to play Overwatch 2. Because it's free, and in the past, other free-to-play titles required PS Plus to play them in multiplayer.


PS Plus is essentially like Xbox Live Gold in that you need to pay for a subscription to access online games. PlayStation Plus is a subscription service. As a PlayStation Plus member, you'll be able to play select content, join your Friends in multiplayer games, and enjoy other special features. You can also automatically back up saved data for games to online storage.


Overwatch 2 is the sequel to the original game released in 2016. All of the heroes from the first part have moved on to the second, and four new ones have already joined them. The last of them, Ramattra, is a tank.



Many former fans of the game returned to Overwatch 2 after its release. The first part, after a few years, namely with the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, ceased to be as interesting as in the beginning. Therefore, many players stopped playing it. Especially other games, including VALORANT, appeared. But Overwatch 2 made a real furor, and the servers were overcrowded, so it was impossible to enter the game.



Is PS Plus required in order to play Overwatch 2?


Luckily for all PlayStation users, no matter which version, 4 or 5, you don't need to have PS Plus to play Overwatch 2.


Yes, it's true that you have to have PS Plus to play multiplayer games. For example, FIFA. But for a free-to-play game like Overwatch 2, you don't need to have PS Plus to play it. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo have allowed players to access free-to-play online games without needing a subscription to the different console’s various memberships.


So it doesn't matter if you have PS Plus or not, you can play and enjoy Overwatch 2 on PlayStation.
