The experimental mode in Overwatch 2 is a specific, time-limited experience that players globally can sometimes participate in order to break out of the usual, sometimes monotonous, and stale gameplay experience in all available game modes.
Prima Games will let you know if and how you can unlock the Experimental mode in Overwatch 2 and how to play it when it is unlocked.

How to Play Experimental Mode in Overwatch 2

The experimental mode was made by Blizzard in an effort to test out some new stuff, which sometimes helps them to gauge the state of the game and guides them toward implementing changes on the live server.

When Experimental Mode is available to play in Overwatch 2, you will see it as an option in the Play Menu.
As you can see in the screenshot above, it is locked at the moment of writing this article.

When Will Experimental Mode Be Available in Overwatch 2?

When you have a look at the Official Overwatch Experimental Patch Notes Page you can establish that the last experiment happened in February 2022. As of now, we do not see any announcement from Overwatch Team (or Blizzard) in regards to when the next Experimental Mode will be live. At any rate, it’s worth mentioning that it usually lasts about a week or two, so when you do notice it’s live and available, try to make the most of it.
