Overwatch 2 is, naturally, a sequel to 2015’s Overwatch. It’s not an entirely new game, though. In many ways, Overwatch 2 is a huge, stand-alone expansion for Overwatch. You don’t need the base game to play the sequel, but players with both versions will play online together. We’ll talk more about that in the coming sections.
The game’s heroes have undergone an artistic redesign. The redesign varies from hero to hero, but each seeks to be true to the hero’s core story, and to imply where the heroes have travelled, or who they’ve spent time with between games.
volutions to the game’s technology, like new shaders and lighting, have allowed greater detail in character rendition, which translates to more emotion via facial features and body language. To further improve the feel of the world, the art team explored ways to push the technology and bring environments to life using weather systems, fog changes, improved cloth, more particles, and sequenced events. Dynamic weather effects, first introduced in Storm Rising, has been improved.
