Overwatch News Banner

This past week the Overwatch team discussed a few of the ideas they are working on while the Beta is offline for a month. This week, we discuss the Overwatch Progression System that will be coming upon it’s return!

Overwatch – Progression System

  • We will have a progression system in place when beta returns.
  • Overwatch has had two different progression systems in the past that were scrapped.
  • They do not want the progression system to be a burden to players, that tells you how to play.
  • No player power through progression – purely cosmetic.
  • People have responded well to skins, they’re going to look at more customization like that for the system.
  • More based on time investment rather than skill, but with proper balance, skilled players will be able to progress faster.
