In early September, Blizzard announced that the 2022 season of the Overwatch League will use an early version of Overwatch 2. This is an unexpected announcement for several reasons, the most important of which is that we really don’t know much about Overwatch 2. Blizzard revealed some major changes to its PvP format earlier this year, but most of them (including Release date) is still in the shadows.
To some extent, this will soon change: Blizzard announced today that we will take a closer look at the “Overwatch 2” during the preview and intermission of the 2021 Overwatch League Finals on September 24. content.
Woo woo woo whee woo whee! Working with the Overwatch team on September 25th, we will release the new Overwatch 2 update in real time during the @OverwatchLeague Finals.Togo GunaSeptember 16, 2021
The demo will include an updated understanding of the roles of the fortress and Sombra, a breakdown of how the new appearance of the fortress is “connected to the design concept of Overwatch 2”, and the highlight of the night, the Overwatch 2 exhibition game attended by professional players in the Overwatch League.
Speaking of the new look of the fort, here is a close quarter. He has a new hat!
The lid of the fortress is the same as Torbjörn’s “Iron Armor” skin, bearing the logo of the Iron Armor Guild, a research and development organization established before the Odorc Crisis. The passive of the fortress, which reduces the incoming damage by 20% in the sentinel or tank configuration, is also known as iron armor. Does this imply that there will be some deeper changes in the character (it is not clear whether the fortress will still have his sentinel configuration, which is not particularly effective in high-level games in Overwatch 2) or is it just a cute accessory? Known at this time.
The redo of Sombra is even more a mystery. Over the years, the hero has undergone some major changes, including rework to make her invisibility unrestricted, but it is not clear what Blizzard has planned for her in the sequel.
