Overwatch Add-On Characters and Maps will Be Free

By   /   11 months ago

When Blizzard announced that Overwatch would not be free-to-play it came as a surprise. This really didn’t matter in the end though with the confirmation of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One announcement that also came at the event.

In a developer update for the game which you can see above, game director Jeff Kaplan shared some details on how DLC will work with the game and how new characters and maps will be released to the game. Instead of complicating the player experience with paid DLC, it will be free. This will mean that all players should get the same heroes and maps, which is obviously good news.

“We have ideas for additional maps and heroes that we’d like to add to the game” Kaplan says. “So we thought about this and decided the best way to add them to the game is to patch them in as free content and not as DLC. Hopefully that alleviates some concern that people have.”

In the video Kaplan also covers some feedback given to Blizzard from the community that are testing the game. This includes the ability to turn music off, provide more details about kills in the game, and also the ability to skip the Kill Cam.

With developer updates like this it is nice to see the community updated on where the development on the game is leading. People will obviously be looking forward to the release, and most to actually be able to play the game as the Beta testing right now is closed with only a select few having access.

Are you looking forward to Overwatch finally getting a release? Let us know your thoughts below.
