Oh wow. A post with something that I haven’t seen before.

It looks nice as always but doesn’t seems much different than OW1 and I am sure the performance will take a hit as well.

Soooo will the day/night cycles be implemented in PvP as well? I’d love that.

Interesting! I wonder if the weather/lighting effects will be drastic enough to deter certain hero picks in missions (i.e you wouldn’t want to bring along Ana in a sandstorm if she cant snipe due to dust cover). Might get even more interesting when, as they said, these effects occur mid-mission, forcing a team to adapt on-the-fly.

Exciting!

One thing I wanna know: Will we get different times for every map now? Like will sometimes when a match starts, will we get to play sunset Numbani while another time we’ll get to play normal daytime Numbani? I think that could really help make the game feel more alive and add new fun dynamics to the game.

It would definitely bring new life to old maps. Especially with very minor weather effects.
