As promised, in the evening of May 20, the team of developing a team shooter Overwatch 2 conducted a live broadcast with a demonstration of PVP-component and a story about basic changes in this aspect compared to the first part.
First, Sikvel is waiting for the reduction of teams from six people to five: in standard PVP modes on each side there will be one “tank”, two heroes of support and two damage players.
The change is designed to force “tanks” to act more aggressively (for the first time about this idea, they mentioned at the recent BlizzConline festival), and simplify users understanding the situation on the battlefield.
Secondly, within the framework of the broadcast, the current version of the Natisk regime was shown, presented on BlizzCon 2019, and also confirmed the seizure of the “capture of points” (it will be replaced by a new regime) from the Competitive Playlist.
Thirdly, the developers demonstrated five cards that will appear in Overwatch 2: “New York” (hybrid), Rome and Toronto (“Natisk”), as well as Monte Carlo and Rio (” Maintenance “).
Race toward the Monte Carlo finish line in Overwatch 2.
