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 adjustments can be coming to Overwatch 2’s battle go, although it did not specify precisely what adjustments would happen. With Season 2 beginning at present, the sport’s director Aaron Keller shared a method the battle go can be completely different, particularly to do with unlocking this season’s new hero, Ramattra. “After reviewing information for Season 1, we’re shifting Ramattra in to Tier 45 of the Battle Cross and making a number of extra weekly challenges simpler to finish,” wrote Keller on Twitter (thanks, PCGamer).
To place this into perspective, when you did not fork out the $10 for the premium go throughout the first season, you would need to grind all the way in which to tier 55 of the free battle go simply to unlock Kiriko. That meant grinding by way of every day and weekly XP challenges for XP, which for some gamers took weeks. Tier 45 continues to be pretty excessive up there, but it surely does make issues a contact simpler for the extra time-constrained participant who would not go for the premium battle go.
When you’re questioning what to anticipate from this subsequent season and its battle go, Blizzard launched a trailer final week exhibiting every little thing off. This season’s cosmetics provides just a little little bit of historic 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 primarily based on historic Greece you may 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 adjustments coming to Season 2. After reviewing information for Season 1, we’re shifting Ramattra in to Tier 45 of the Battle Cross and making a number of extra weekly challenges simpler to finish. Excited for you all to see every little thing new in Season 2 beginning tomorrow!
