game news Overwatch 2: Naruto in the Blizzard game? Not totally impossible!
Just six more days to wait for Overwatch fans waiting for the second opus to arrive. New characters, new maps, 5v5, free-to-play economic model, the changes are numerous, and we may not be at the end of our surprises.
Six years after its release, Overwatch will soon transition to Overwatch 2, which has been in development for several years. If the DNA will remain the same to the point where many gamers just see the title as a huge upgrade, there are many changes. The cards have been redesigned, new ones come, 6v6 has been abandoned in favor of 5v5new characters are planned, there is a new game mode, but above all, it is the economic model that has changed.
Overwatch 2: a new era of free games
Exit paid title at launch, Overwatch 2 will be free. And who says free-to-play says free Battle Pass and paid Battle Pass. Some rewards can be obtained for free, others, including new skins and characters, must be unlocked through the paid battle pass. From launch, two new heroes will be playable: Sojourn and Junker Queen. But we have known for a few days that a third character, Kiriko, it is expected. If you have Overwatch name first, it will be offered, otherwise you will have to purchase the battle pass (by playing or drawing the blue card). An additional hero (tank) will be added from Season 2, with the others arriving every other season.
Blizzard claims that Old heroes, if lost, will be accessible again through battle passes. of the next seasons or in the store. In recent years, and especially under the momentum of Fortnite, numerous cosmetic collaborations have come to free-to-play games. In the Battle Royale of Epic Games, it is now possible see Alien’s Xenomorph battle against Son Goku, himself fighting Spider-Man and Naruto !
Collaborations with other licenses in Overwatch 2?
These collaborations despite a series of criticisms, they work very well and obviously, Blizzard is not against the idea of establishing collaborations with other licenses. Recently interviewed by Game Informer, the vice president of licenses, Jon Spector, expressed himself in this sense:
We’ve seen some really fun examples of games that work with other brands or other games. I am also a huge fan of anime. I think it’s cool when I see Naruto appear in Fortnite. I don’t even play Fortnite, but it’s awesome. And as we look back at Overwatch 2, these are things we want to explore. If and when we do it, one of our key values will be to do it in the right way for the Overwatch franchise.
In other words, at the moment there is nothing planned, but the idea is very popular at Blizzard. However, and as Jon Spector indicates, it will be necessary that these collaborations, if they materialize, stay with the universe of supervision. Fortnite has hundreds of millions of players, and its universe is much more malleable than Overwatch, which has established its lore, its characters, and its evolution. So the idea is under consideration, but whatever it is, not for now ! Remember that Overwatch 2 will be available to everyone from October 4 on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. It is a game early accessthat he will be subject to increased surveillance, and that he arrives stripped of his share PvE, which should arrive next year.
