Overwatch 2 sport director Adam Keller thanked the beta contributors and shared some ideas about what it meant to the builders to see gamers’ reactions to the sport, saying, “It can be scary putting something that means so much to you out there for other people to look at. Especially when you know that it’s not finished and you’re asking for people’s real and valid criticisms of what you’ve made.”
While pleasure for the completed sport remains to be fairly excessive, critics have given the beta a lukewarm reception. The sport additionally never recaptured the highs on Twitch because it did when Blizzard was giving out invites to viewers who watched sure streamers for a set variety of hours. Personally, the beta was simply okay. I wish the help heroes — a category I play virtually to the exclusion of others — had gotten extra updates like lots of the tank and injury heroes did. I’m additionally desirous to see any of the PvE additions coming to the sport, as that was at all times what I used to be most excited for.
Overall, at this stage, Overwatch 2 feels not fairly completed, which might be the place it needs to be because the sport’s nonetheless in beta. I’m hoping that no matter’s introduced through the Overwatch 2 occasion on June sixteenth will fill within the gaps.
In the meantime, Overwatch prime remains to be a sport that anybody can play proper now. And, to maybe ease the sting of beta gamers having to return to the bottom Sojourn-less sport, Blizzard has introduced the subsequent anniversary event begins as we speak.
