On May 20, Blizzard will introduce two hours of Overwatch 2 gameplay, with a first look at the changes to PvP mode.
Announced by new director Aaron Keeler In Brief Development Update, Will start the live broadcast on May 20 at 8:00 pm in France. It will focus on PvP and will include screenshots of mode changes. This will be the game’s largest presentation since its announcement.
Keeler, Chief Champion Designer Jeff Goodman and Associate Artistic Director Dion Rogers will participate in the live broadcast, hosted by Matt “Mr. X” Morello and Mitch “Uber” Leslie (with input from Overwatch influencers Stylosa and Cuppcaake).
It’s not clear exactly what PvP live streaming will offer, but it will definitely affect both Overwatch 2 and Overwatch first of the name, as both games share a PvP setup. A press release reads, “With new maps and major game updates, we encourage the Overwatch experience.”
These changes to PvP may be fundamental, as Overwatch 2 BlizzCon made clear that the team was making experimental changes to the game, including adding passive abilities to all of the protagonist roles, and radically changing the way the characters work. .
Game director Jeff Kaplan, now gone, at IGN previously hinted that changes to PvP would be scalable to the game: “Maybe we’re trying to rethink the way the game is played and redefine the ways in which the game is played. He needs, to say, ‘Hey, we’re no longer in. Overwatch 1. We are now on Overwatch 2. It naturally be different. In fact, how many years will we be playing the same game before the time comes to move forward and try something different and allow ourselves to develop? “Which I think is a good thing.”
With no release date in sight, it’s not exactly clear where Overwatch 2 will evolve, but Blizzard intends to update fans more regularly than before, which could be the first in a series of gaming presentations.
