I don’t necessarily look forward to it Monitor 2Activision Blizzard’s follow-up and replacement for the team-based shooter of 2016.

computer games I mentioned this week That the series’ lead designer, Jeff Goodman, who helped shape the series since its incubation period six years ago, recently left Blizzard. Recently in August, Activision employees accused the gaming company from breaching unions. In June, the company expressed reluctance to file Annual Reports of Harassment Despite years of employees speaking up against what they call abusive workplace. None of this inspires enthusiasm.

but there it’s new girl PersonalitiesAnd I think that’s great. Girls are wonderful. People online have asked a lot of questions about Monitor 2 (Understandably – it’s only two weeks away from its release), and so I thought I’d go on my internet breaks to find and answer some of the most frequently asked questions. I want to understand this Monitor 2 Together, and maybe even find something to look forward to (or not).

When will Monitor 2 He appears?

That’s easy — October 4, 2022. The game itself is free, but an in-game store and A battle pass often slandered Effectively working on the paywall are some new characters and seasonal items for the live service.

Why is no one talking about Blizzard Close Note and watch Before Monitor 2 release?

Blizzard not only canning Note and watch Before 2version – it completely replaces Note and watch with Monitor 2. I think naming the game is something like Overwatch 2.0 or Watch again or Hey, I’m watching except there are more cool girls That would help clear up some confusion. Blizzard didn’t ask me to come during the label meeting, oddly enough.

The last day of pure play Note and watch It’s October 2, two days ago 2 release. Then, Note and watch commercial John Spector drives said in statement for Eurogamer That “It’s a 27-hour downtime and we’re planning to get Monitor 2 The server is standing up and running.” At some point during those 27 hours, new players will be able to download Monitor 2 early to launch, and existing players will receive a notification to update their software to Monitor 2.

Al-Qaeda Monitor 2 The game is free, but Blizzard will still generously give you the opportunity to hand some money over. You can buy the Watchpoint Pack, a $39.99 bundle, if you’re really hungry.

according to Described by Battle.netand includes the following: Season 1 of Monitor 2The Premium Battle Pass, which gives you access to the wizard hero Kiriko, “more than 80 classes of rewards”, 7 legendary skins, 5 epic skins, 2,000 Overwatch coins, and Overwatch Legendary Edition. The fine print indicates that only in-game items are from legendary will move to Monitor 2anyway.

he is Monitor 2 switch to 5v5?

yes. Blizzard Announced in 2021 They will cut PvP team sizes from six to five. Perhaps that is what God has decreed about fingers and toes as well.

What is this undisclosed? basic mode?

It’s just speculation at this point. a a few months agoa Discord user has translated the information they were supposed to share from Deleted interview now With French player Botxica and Jeff Goodman and game director Aaron Keeler. User Said There’s “Undisclosed Gameplay” Coming in 2023, and Enthusiastic Reddit Users Think It Might Be Castle team 2-Type 5CP.

More speculation, but seems to be seasonal Note and watch Items either will not be transferred to Monitor 2or you will no longer be able to purchase them with credits.

Players got a “last chance” wolf reminder to “spend your credits on seasonal collection items!” in the game. The same reminder vaguely indicates that the same balances will move to 2So, ah…

But Blizzard Books In the blog of September 15 It was offering another currency, Overwatch Coins, and a “seasonal model” with nine-week refresh periods, which would equip the game with things like heroes, maps, modes, and skins. It seems likely that anything from Blizzard drives you to spend those old times Note and watch Credits in will not be available for one reason or another on October 4th.

I’ve seen a lot of people complain about it all Note and watch Characters are less adverb in Monitor 2, but most of the time, I honestly can’t tell the difference in character design. At least, not in a way that seems important or meaningful. I am sorry. But take solace in remembering that your diary will always have immaculate blank pages so you can perfect your Widowmaker’s cheekbones, if that’s the case.

Why Note and watch Loved by critics, but hated by players?

Is that correct? For the most part, I think critics and non-critics alike come close Monitor 2 With healthy trepidation and moderate intrigue, I think a lot of non-critics would love to play the original Note and watch. In the end, we are all just people with opinions, which weren’t facts, as you learned in first grade. Nothing to worry about there.

should Monitor 2 It is considered general game?

Can. As a critic, I love Monitor 2But as a player, I hate it. So I’m not sure.

Make the fatty pockets of Blizzard executives explode.
