Aaron Keller, director of Overwatch 2, released during the live from the official channel from Blizzard on Youtube, the changes that will come with the new game in the franchise. To begin with, one of the main changes disclosed was regarding the formation of the teams during the player-to-player matches. In Overwatch 2, teams have 1 player less.

“This will allow players to understand everything around them, and it will help them make better choices. And that will mean changes for tank characters, like Reinhardt, for example, and other functions, ”said Aaron Keller during the live.

Previously, matches that were played by teams of six players are now teams of five against five. According to Keller, this novelty of Overwatch “simplifies everything”.

“If you think about it, there's a lot going on on an Overwatch map. It's incredibly fast. We have always tried to make our combat easy to read and much more understandable, and even with all the work we have put into it, it is sometimes difficult to track what 11 other players are doing on the battlefield. Removing two of them simplifies everything and allows players to understand everything that is happening around them and to be able to make better choices. ”

This change does not only imply the issue of the number of players on the map, but also in relation to their role. With this change, the matches will also have only one tank for each team.

"Tanks can be problematic," said Keller. “A DPS hero is simple - they are out there shooting. But a tank has skills that can be 'loud', or when combined with other tanks it can cause problems for other teams to try to overcome them and counterattack. ”

With the five player model in a team and limiting them to one tank, he continued, there is a better chance that players alone will be able to load their teams, because each player “will have the opportunity to make a greater individual impact on their own team".

In addition to the changes in team formation and the number of players, the Overwatch team revealed that the second game will have a map inspired by Brazil, which will be the map of the character Lúcio. In addition to the design that resembles the communities of Rio de Janeiro, the map will be of the “Escort” type and will have as object to be protected a type of float in the form of a purple and green peacock.

In addition to the colorful buildings, the “Supermercado” typical of Brazilian neighborhoods, the “Bar do Peixuxa” and the “Clube Sinestesia”, the map will also have a beach. But, it is not known whether players will be able to rest there or if it is just another place where the characters will battle each other. See the video with the map posted on Blizzard's Twitter.

In the distant future, a global calamity led to the revolt of robots against humans and a team of heroes brought together by the United Nations, known as Overwatch, was brought together to stop them.

Before seen as heroes by humanity, now they are treated with suspicion and for that reason, they disappeared from the view of the whole public. But with a new war in sight, Gorilla Winston decided to bring the group together again and prevent a new Global Crisis from happening.

Overwatch is a Hero Shooter-style FPS, where teams of six players battle on maps in competitive matches to dominate an objective, escort it or eliminate the opposing team. The game was released by Blizzard in 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Already Overwatch 2 was announced in 2019 and follows no release forecast.
