Det var først på tirsdag, at Blizzard skulle have åbnet op for anden sæson af Competitive Play i Overwatch, men den amerikanske spilproducent er startet lidt før tid i dag. Det var Game Director Jeff Kaplan, som selv bekræftede tyvstartet via et kort forumindlæg lige over midnat. Det var ellers meningen af anden sæson skulle have startet nu på tirsdag – den 6. september

Stor patch og Eichenwalde map er live nu på PC / Xbox One

Blizzard har her lige over middag tilføjet et blogindlæg, hvor de opridser de store ændringer. Vi fortalte i sidste måned, at der var store ændringer på vej og kunne også fremvise det nye Eichenwalde map under GamesCom.

Sudden death is being removed this season, and we’ve incorporated an improved version of the time bank system that we’ve been using for Overwatch’s Assault maps into our Escort and Assault/Escort maps. If you’re not familiar with the system, here’s how it works.

Throughout the match, the game keeps track of how much time each team has left on the clock. When a competitive match is tied after both teams have played one round on offense and one on defense, a new attack/defend rotation will be played using the time bank system. The amount of time that each team will have for the second round depends on how much time was left on the clock at the end of their previous round.

When the second round is initiated, teams with less than 60 seconds remaining will have their time increased to 60 seconds, and an equal amount of time will always be added to the opposing team’s clock. Also, on Assault and Assault/Escort maps, it’s possible for the match to end in a draw if both teams are tied when the clock expires.

The overall round length of each competitive match has also been shortened by 60 seconds, which means players will have less time to capture points and escort payloads in the second season.

Disse ændringer er nu live på både PC og Xbox One-versionen. PlayStation 4 gamere må, efter lidt forvirring her til frokost, vente til i næste uge. Sony er ikke blevet færdige med deres patch-certificering, men det sker formodentlig på tirsdag, hvor Competitive Play sæson 2 oprindeligt skulle være startet.

Du kan finde de officielle patch notes til PC / Xbox One på Blizzards Overwatch forum.

Prøv Overwatch gratis i den kommende weekend

Blizzard kunne i går fortælle, at de vil give konsolejerne lov til at prøve Overwatch gratis i den kommende weekend fra den 9 – 12. september. Har du endnu ikke forsøgt dig med en af årets bedste shooters (sammen med DOOM), så bør du bestemt overveje det nu.

If you haven’t had a chance to join the fight for the future yet on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, then get ready for the perfect tactical opportunity. Assemble your friends and try out Blizzard’s team-based shooter during the Overwatch Free Weekend September 9–12!

overwatch-season-2-2

For this free weekend, we’re making Overwatch’s full roster of 22 heroes and 13 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the latest Weekly Brawl. You’ll also be able to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock different customization options via the Hero Gallery. If you like what you see and decide to buy Overwatch: Origins Edition, you’ll also get to keep whatever progress you made during the weekend. (Wicked!)

  1. Rart var stoppet helt efter sæson 1 sluttede ja quick play er slet ikke noget ved når man er vant til competitive.
    Når det er sagt så syntes jeg godt nok Hanzo er blevet totalt OP, der er mere eller mindre hanzoer der render rudnt og slagter for hårdt i hvert af mine placement games.
