Despite the fact that this move with Overwatch 2 may be very troublesome with fans, it isn’t so unprecedented to see this training in other multiplayer games. Titles like Class of Legends, Valorant, and Rainbow Six Attack have consistently locked new characters behind a mass or some likeness thereof that can then be opened by spending genuine cash or in-game money. With Overwatch 2 currently moving to an allowed-to-play model, it’s not surprising to see that Snowstorm would hope to embrace a comparative framework. In any case, it’s difficult to see the reason why many fans would be significantly disturbed given that the first Overwatch never approached delivering Legends thusly.
It is not yet clear how Overwatch 2 does eventually, yet fans will not need to stand by significantly longer to get their hands on the game at first. Overwatch 2 is set to deliver in early access one month from now on October fourth and will be coming to PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
What is your opinion about these adjustments that Snowstorm is executing with new Legends in Overwatch 2?
