Overwatch 2 has not turned out to be the complete sequel that fans had hoped for, with the beta of the game revealing several compelling reasons for going back to Overwatch again. Despite the debated new scoreboard, intense hero reworks, and the alteration to the 5v5 format, Overwatch 2 remains much like the original.
Both games even share an identical multiplayer. The original Overwatch 2 is poised to come with the full PvE campaign of the game. It will feature co-op missions that are story-driven where our heroes face off against the Omnic hordes.
The biggest unknown remains that it doesn’t have a great record of telling a strong, compelling story. Going by present experience, Overwatch 2 remains more of a massive rework or patch of Overwatch.
It is a kind of involvement and experience more typically associated with sequels than traditional video games. That makes a lot of sense as Overwatch 2 PvP mode has ultimately turned out to be an open upgrade from existing owners of the original. Only the new content in PvE will require you to invest.
But fans are wondering if the long time it took to develop Overwatch 2 is justified. In several ways, Overwatch is the victim of the existence of its sequel. Most fans were doubtful that their experience of the sequel to Overwatch would make them wait for further releases in the future.
Overwatch 2 Has Several Major Improvements Over The Original
The game makes quite a strong first impression. Several improvements might even make you start playing from the start.
One of the major innovations was the innovative use of the ‘Ping System, by Apex Legends which allows players to tag key objectives and items.
The number of stuns and shields has also been greatly reduced, increasing the flow of the game. The encounter feels closer to a battle.
