Overwatch is dead, long live Overwatch
That’s it, it’s October 4, 2022. Three years after its fanciful introduction at BlizzCon 2019, Overwatch 2 is preparing to roll out to PC and consoles around the world. A second episode that Blizzard promises to be “very different from the first“. Something that is already observed before the release of the title.
In fact, several new features and some adjustments allow you to see the big changes in the game. Fans of the Blizzard license already know this: there is, for example, the passage of matches from 6v6 to 5v5, which promises an assured change of compositions. The other big change is the game’s move to free-to-play with an economic model based on the battle pass and cosmetics: on paper, this gives players more reason to come back to collect certain rewards.
Of course, interior adjustments have also been made. Without being exhaustive, we can mention the redesign of competitive games, the arrival of a marking system to facilitate communication or the progressive discovery system created for players who would learn the license with Overwatch 2.
