After being introduced in 2019, Overwatch 2 pale into the shadows and has solely reemerged a few instances for little bulletins and particulars. Blizzard now seems to be shining the highlight on this extremely anticipated sequel once more with two deep seems to be at how a few of its heroes are being reworked.
Just a few days in the past, Blizzard launched a video (beneath) that exhibits how Somra is altering for the sequel. Her hack can nonetheless disable hero talents, however she will be able to additionally use it to disclose their location to her teammates. Sombra also can hack whereas being in stealth mode.
Sombra nonetheless seems to be like she performs in an identical approach to her Overwatch 1 potential. That might not be the case for Bastion. In a brand new video (above), Blizzard exhibits us that this cute robotic will play fairly in another way. Bastion’s Final assault is now an artillery strike. When activated, Bastion locks to the bottom, and unleashes a long-range barrage that the participant manually pinpoints on the map from an overhead perspective.
Bastion can not self-repair, that means he’ll want a healer at this facet. He has somewhat extra firepower now, and may launch a tactical grenade that may bounce off of partitions and persist with enemies. The grenade has a big radius and may do severe harm when a group is attempting to face on some extent for seize. Bastion’s recon weapon additionally has zero unfold and may perform like a sniper rifle (simply with out a scope). Lastly, Bastion can transfer whereas in sentry mode to deal rolling loss of life, however it comes at a value – Bastion can solely keep on this type for eight seconds and it has a ten second cooldown after coming out of it.
We nonetheless do not know when Overwatch 2 will hit, however Blizzard’s transfer to launch extra info may sign that date is drawing close to. Our guess is early 2022.
