Overwatch is dead, long live Overwatch
That’s it, it’s October 4, 2022. Three years after its presentation with great fanfare at BlizzCon 2019, Overwatch 2 is preparing to be deployed on PCs 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.
Indeed, several new features and a few adjustments allow you to see the big changes to the game. Fans of the Blizzard license already know this: there is, for example, the passage of matches from 6 against 6 to 5 against 5, which promises a change of compositions assured. The other major change being 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 reasons to come back in order to collect certain rewards.
Of course, interior adjustments have also been made. Without being exhaustive, we can mention the redesign of the 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.
