Overwatch 2, the sequel to the 2016 multiplayer game that made a splash globally before the release of Fortnite, was officially announced in 2019, and the spectacular trailer made a good impression. It is developed by Blizzard and will be released on October 4, 2022on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Nintendo Switch.
Overwatch 2 promises improved graphics, larger-scale battles, a cooperative story campaign, and PvE gameplay. But the big surprise is that the game will be free unlike the first game.
The story of the game takes place somewhere between the years 2076-2080, when people live peacefully with robots after a bloody war, but a few criminals disturb the peace.
32 heroes, most with sad and suffering stories, doped and cybernetically augmented, equipped with devastating weapons, healing abilities, or state-of-the-art mecha armor, and a scholar-minded gorilla, gather in a team similar to the Marvel Avengers and the Justice League in the DC universe, and set out to fight for world peace.
The first Overwatch game reached 25 million players in 2017 and currently has 6.9 million players.
According to the graphics, it seems to be a friendly game for underage players, and is intended for players over the age of 12, but it is a game with shots, without bloody sequences. But another element almost made it forbidden to minors.
It was controversial because of the loot-box system, or boxes of surprises and random prizes – packages of items, skins, sprays, highlight intros, emotes, victory poses, player icons, voice lines that are offered at the end of each match after the player increases in level, being considered a characteristic element of gambling, similar to tricks.
The game has also been heavily criticized by European Union governments for microtransactions, with minor players paying to virtually change the clothes and appearance of the characters, or even to buy surprise packages to receive prizes at random.
In 2018, the Belgian government deactivated payment with real money in the game, so players could no longer buy packages with surprises.
