USA.- Overwatch 2 it may be addressing many players’ complaints about the game not being rewarding enough when Season 3 kicks off in about a month. While the message was vague, executive producer Jared Neuss has resorted to Twitter to say that some updates are coming in the next battle pass that should “help address the lack of choice in rewards” the game is currently seeing.
We have some updates coming to S3 that we’ll be talking about soon to help address the lack of options in rewards. I’ll keep it vague for now.
Currently, the rewards in Overwatch 2 are very scarce. If you buy the battle pass, you get a track of 80 levels of skins, voice lines, and more, but outside of that, the opportunity to fill out your cosmetics library is pretty much exclusive to the in-game store. There have been intermittent opportunities to get skins from Twitch Drops and completing seasonal event challenges, but those have been minimal at best and are mostly old skins that previous players already have.
Speculatively speaking, the most likely change coming in the new season would be to earn some of the game’s microtransaction currency, Overwatch Coins, more easily. Overwatch Coins are spent in the store to get new skins, bundles, and even characters you missed in previous battle passes. Giving players more to earn would also help some players spend a bit more on the game, which we all know is what they want. Blizzard. It would be good for both parties.
If we had to guess, Blizzard will likely expand the premium battle pass to give players who pay and play through the track more coins. As it stands now, you get very little for completing 11 weekly challenges outside of the battle pass and that’s it. We also hope that the 60 coins you get for completing those challenges now (about 60 cents of real world money) will be increased to at least 100 coins, as those requirements can be difficult to meet.
Regardless of the announcements coming soon for the future of the rewards of Overwatch 2it should be something that makes players excited about the game grind and feel that the time they spend in the game is more important than the money in their wallet.
