Overwatch 2 Battle Pass and Progression Changes Coming Soon, Blizzard Says

Monitor 2The launch and inaugural season of as a free-to-play game didn’t always go to plan. The creators of the game said before the game launched that they wanted its battle pass to feel like “overwhelming and obvious value”, but much of the conversation around rewards and cosmetics for Surveillance 2 has been around high priced skins and disappointing gifts. That seems to be changing for the game’s second season, which kicks off in December.

Overwatch’s New Executive Producer Jared Neuss said in a blog post Thursday that Blizzard “isn’t completely happy with how everything feels right now,” when it comes to rewards and progression in Monitor 2.

“There are a lot of things we love about it – completing a bunch of daily/weekly challenges or getting something new for a hero you love can be a lot of fun! But we also recognize that today’s experience oday offers opportunities for improvement that we need to focus on,” Neuss said. “We want you to feel more rewarded just for sitting down and playing. We want you to have new achievements to pursue outside of your Competitive Rank Tier and Battle Pass.

To do this, Neuss said, Blizzard is changing Monitor 2The rewards structure of “so that each event has a skin you can earn by playing, in addition to the other cosmetic rewards we already offer.” (Monitor 2first event, Halloween Terror 2022did not reward players with much beyond a weapon charm, certain titles, voice lines, and XP.) Twitch drops, where players watch content creators stream Monitor 2and getting free cosmetics for that audience will also continue, Neuss said.

“While we work on the long-term plans, we want future seasons to be more rewarding than Season 1,” he added. More free skins and more battle pass rewards will likely go a long way toward achieving that goal.

Neuss also hinted at “a mix of Battle Pass changes, more interesting challenges to pursue, and more exciting gameplay-focused progression systems” coming in Season 3, which would likely kick off in February 2023. of the game in particular have been a point of contention for gamers, because that’s how Monitor 2 distributes its free in-game currency, Overwatch Coins.

In the short term, it looks like Blizzard will also be changing the XP rewards for the battle pass for players who queue in a support role (or all roles, which ends up being a support) in an effort to address the issues. waiting times too long for other roles (tank and damage).

Neuss added that Blizzard is also working on ideas related to the support role to make it “more fun and more rewarding to play.” This includes “targeted fixes to Support heroes, game system updates, and even role-wide changes to improve Support’s quality of life.”

Season 2 of Monitor 2 begins December 6. The second season will bring a new hero to the game, the Ramattra tanka new map and a new battle pass.
