    They already had this on certain events. So it's nothing massive.

    I don't know how that works. Sound more like Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy. Both games feature the same multiplayer mode, so either one will allow for playing between players. I guess that's kinda what this feature is about? It probably means not much has changed between the two games, and if new characters get made, it would be available on both. So basically The first one is focused more on competitive multiplayer, the second is for casuals who wanted a "Not a single player" game. Just sounds like Titan Fall all over again. The only question remains is will it be cross platform multiplayer. :blink:

    Yeah some leaks were saying it's basically the Overwatch Halloween event stretched out over several large maps. Just feels like Blizzard is way behind the curve on everything now and people might as well play Vermintide 2 instead.

    I like Overwatch as a game, I really do. But the PVP is unbalanced and you always must play the "meta" to win or get a chance.

    dont be upset. it isnt a new game. it is a story expansion. All of the pvp maps and modes will be playable by ow1 players. ow2 is the story mode, hero missions, customizable characters expansion.

    I gues on earth.
    Why do people think, that making sequels to esport titles is a good idea? You're just gonna split the player base or mostly kill the original game.

    I understand peoples point, but I'm sure the Switch will get "2" eventually.

    From what I understand, everything is carried over and shared, except the story mode.

    nah, this is to keep the tradition of the switch only getting old games.

    nope, ow1 and ow2 players are gonna play together in pvp. ow2 is essentially a glorified expansion with new visuals.
    ow1 players will miss out on the pve story, but everything else (new heroes, maps and the pvp mode) will be available for them.

    I liked the beta so much that I pre-ordered the collector's edition, but after launch it didn't take long before matches started to feel repetitive. I played for maybe a little under a year before calling it quits.

    I won't support Blizzard in any way. They put money before free speech and freedom in general.

    Didn't blizzard first anounce they were going to support this game for a longer time because they wanted to focus on E sports ? Wondering how most people actually feel after only getting support for 3 to 4 years having spent tons on skins and so forth. 3-4 years is still a long time but in my eyes not long enough for an E sports game. Would agree more with a 5-10 year period. We'll see if they can keep their promise of not locking pvp elements behind the OW2 expansion. It's blizzard so i do see them locking certain heroes behind the OW2 paywall in the future forcing people to pay for the expansion

    I don’t feel they’ve broken that promise. If they stick to their guns and not start making stuff exclusive to Overwatch 2 then Overwatch will still be supported for the foreseeable future.
