Overwatch 2 had a more modest presence at BlizzConline than some of Blizzard Entertainment’s different games — partially in light of the fact that the game is as yet far off — however the Overwatch group didn’t appear empty handed. During the show, Blizzard gave a behind-the-scenes look at the sequel to Overwatch, including new searches for that game’s heroes and villains.
Snowstorm featured design overhauls for four characters: McCree, Pharah, Reaper, and Widowmaker. In some cases, the progressions aren’t especially drastic; McCree actually has his signature cowboy hat and serape, yet he, as other Overwatch 2 characters, has a marginally more technical look to him. Goodness, and his beard’s somewhat more — everybody’s beards are longer, obviously.
And afterward there’s Widowmaker. Blizzard attempted a few more dramatic searches for the expert marksman. Snowstorm eventually went with something a smidgen more “cyberpunk,” as per lead character idea artist Arnold Tsang.
Widowmaker’s additionally sporting a braid now … furthermore, some questionable armor plating.
Pharah holds her full body armor, however has a more translucent visor to show more emotion, Tsang said, and somewhat more white in her color scheme. With respect to Reaper, he holds a similar silhouette and edgelord style, however now has a more silver to his look. Be that as it may, something else, the heroes and villains in Overwatch 2 hold numerous elements of their original designs.
Overwatch 2 doesn’t yet have a release date, yet Activision Blizzard said not to anticipate the game in 2021.
