Overwatch 2

Recommended Posts

I know I'm the resident OW fanboi but I think this looks amazing. The amount of times we've said that they need to do more PvE stuff and expand on the lore. It actually seems like they were building he sequel well before any of us were even thinking about it. Thankfully it looks like a standalone expansion rather than a DLC. This fits the original model they were going for and will make sure that the player base is as high as possible. 

 

Will wait to see what the score is more but this is an absolute must have for me. A most welcome sequel that can hopefully fill the boots of PvE and PvP players alike

It should be a must have for all of us @Stretch616, as you say we've all been waiting for more PvE stuff and lore background just needed to be there as the characters are so memorable.

 

All I've seen so far is that you will keep all of your skins and gear you have earned from Overwatch 1 so it definitely feels like an expansion and thats totally fine with me.

 

I always feel story and videos like that can make you want to try out certain heroes to see more about them.

 

 

Also, did anyone see in the launch video how Reinhardt and Brigitte say 'interlock shields'?! That would be awesome if that type of interactive actions can happen.

Lovely that the people who focus on the esports side do not need to pay money for a DLC just for PvE. I'll pass on this one since OW will have all of the maps and characters for PVP.

 

Odd choice to make a second title rather than DLC.

Definitely looks more like an expansion than a sequel. I’m guessing Blizzard have milked the original as much as they can  - there’s only so many characters they can turn gay when player counts are drying up and the game losing popularity, or the money isn’t being made via in-game purchases. It all got a bit predictable and tiresome. They’ll bait a lot people into spending £40-$50 just by having a ‘2’ in the name even if the content itself is not a revolutionary step forward.

I'll agree that it's kinda near the end of the line for OW1 because they've been lucky to keep the player base when they dont really update the game pretty much at all.

 

Having said that, OW 1 was primarily a PvP game with PvE simple add ons that were never really updated across 3 years.

 

People clearly want more PvE and I guess its make sense to bring over PvP in one whole game.

 

It's too early to know if the added and new content is worth 50 quid but they also realise the value of this game usually drops pretty quickly to 25-30 within a few months which shouldnt be too far off the mark.

 

 

Let's hope that in game rewards are all obtainable via completing PvE activities as well as PvP.

 

Be also interesting to see if loot boxes are kept in the game moving forward.
