It appears like Blizzard is listening to participant suggestions, and has made it simpler to unlock the brand new hero in Overwatch 2 Season 2, Ramattra.
Blizzard had beforehand promised that modifications can be coming to Overwatch 2’s battle move, although it did not specify precisely what modifications would happen. With Season 2 beginning at this time, the sport’s director Aaron Keller shared a method the battle move can be totally different, particularly to do with unlocking this season’s new hero, Ramattra. “After reviewing knowledge for Season 1, we’re shifting Ramattra in to Tier 45 of the Battle Go and making a number of extra weekly challenges simpler to finish,” wrote Keller on Twitter (thanks, PCGamer).
To place this into perspective, if you happen to did not fork out the $10 for the premium move throughout the first season, you would need to grind all the way in which to tier 55 of the free battle move simply to unlock Kiriko. That meant grinding by every day and weekly XP challenges for XP, which for some gamers took weeks. Tier 45 continues to be pretty excessive up there, however it does make issues a contact simpler for the extra time-constrained participant who does not go for the premium battle move.
In the event you’re questioning what to anticipate from this subsequent season and its battle move, Blizzard launched a trailer final week exhibiting the whole lot off. This season’s cosmetics provides a little bit little bit of historical Greece into the combination, with Junker Queen getting a Zeus-themed Mythic pores and skin, in addition to different skins like Cyclops Roadhog, Medusa Widowmaker, Minotaur Reinhardt, and extra.
It isn’t simply skins based mostly on historical Greece you possibly can count on although, as from January 5 to 19, a “Battle for Olympus” mode might be accessible to partake in. Blizzard hasn’t shared any particulars on how this new mode will work, although the brand new skins apparently present some sort of trace.
Hey all! Fast replace on some modifications coming to Season 2. After reviewing knowledge for Season 1, we’re shifting Ramattra in to Tier 45 of the Battle Go and making a number of extra weekly challenges simpler to finish. Excited for you all to see the whole lot new in Season 2 beginning tomorrow!
