Overwatch’s Remix occasion is technically the primary ‘new’ occasion the sport has seen in years. The difficulty is, even with a sequel on the way in which, gamers deserve greater than recycled content material.
The Remix occasions in Overwatch are a brand new addition for 2022, and are changing the earlier Anniversary and Summer time Video games occasions.
This implies we received’t see any new skins from both occasion, however can depend on a crop of recolored skins from the sport’s previous. Even with Overwatch 2 proper on the horizon, gamers nonetheless deserve greater than rehashed skins.
Overwatch Remix doesn’t really feel like an actual occasion
Let’s be sincere right here: Summer time Video games and Anniversary aren’t the worst occasions to get replaced. Anniversary was already a catch-up occasion anyway, and nobody is mourning the lack of an occasion primarily based round Lucioball.
What shall be missed, although, are the brand-new skins every occasion introduced. As a substitute, we get what are principally photo-negative variations of among the most well-known cosmetics.
With Overwatch 2 on the way in which, it’s comprehensible if improvement efforts are being put elsewhere moreover new skins. That being mentioned although, the Remix occasions are a little bit of a letdown, particularly after followers had been promised loads of new skins in 2022.
The final occasion we bought new content material in was Lunar New 12 months, and even that was a little bit of a letdown. Devs may have despatched Overwatch out in fashion with a large haul of content material over the past Anniversary occasion earlier than the sequel, however as a substitute we get the Remix occasion, which appears thrown collectively, at finest.
Plus, if you happen to log in you’ll discover these Remix skins are it in terms of content material. No new voice strains, no new emotes, and no new sprays, both.
There’s a silver lining although, and that’s the unique restricted time skins being introduced again for weekly challenges. Loads of gamers admire the prospect to earn Nano Cola D.Va once more, however new content material, it isn’t.
Devs have already responded to gamers considerations a few lack of brand-new content material, so who is aware of? We may see an avalanche of skins following the Overwatch 2 beta.
Most gamers would agree, we’d fairly see a shocking rollout of the brand new sport than new skins. So, if that’s what devs are specializing in, extra energy to them. That being mentioned although, hopefully they don’t neglect that skins and cosmetics are a giant a part of why folks fell in love with the sport within the first place.
