The Overwatch 2 beta is now over. Should you have been one of many fortunate handful that have been in a position to snag an invitation, congratulations. If not, don’t fear. There’ll seemingly be extra alternatives to check out Overwatch 2 sooner or later.
A kind of alternatives may very well be revealed throughout an Overwatch 2 occasion slated for June sixteenth.
Overwatch 2 recreation director Adam Keller thanked the beta contributors and shared some ideas about what it meant to the builders to see gamers’ reactions to the sport, saying, “It may be scary placing one thing which means a lot to you on the market for different individuals to have a look at. Particularly when you realize that it’s not completed and also you’re asking for individuals’s actual and legitimate criticisms of what you’ve made.”
Whereas pleasure for the completed recreation remains to be fairly excessive, critics have given the beta a lukewarm reception. The sport additionally by no means recaptured the highs on Twitch because it did when Blizzard was giving out invitations to viewers who watched sure streamers for a set variety of hours. Personally, the beta was simply okay. I want the assist heroes — a category I play virtually to the exclusion of others — had gotten extra updates like a number of the tank and harm heroes did. I’m additionally wanting to see any of the PvE additions coming to the sport, as that was at all times what I used to be most excited for.
General, at this stage, Overwatch 2 feels not fairly completed, which might be the place it needs to be for the reason that recreation’s nonetheless in beta. I’m hoping that no matter’s introduced throughout the Overwatch 2 occasion on June sixteenth will fill within the gaps.
Within the meantime, Overwatch prime remains to be a recreation that anybody can play proper now. And, to maybe ease the sting of beta gamers having to return to the bottom Sojourn-less recreation, Blizzard has introduced the following anniversary occasion begins as we speak.
Overwatch Anniversary Remix: Quantity 2 provides gamers the chance to play all the most effective seasonal occasions, full challenges for particular skins, and earn up to date palette swaps on among the greatest legendary skins within the recreation.
