What it’s like to work on Overwatch’s tools and engine

Overwatch 2’s PvE (Player vs. Environment) maps are larger and more complex than Overwatch maps like Retribution and Storm Rising.

Please stop, I’m drooling on myself :laughing:

Even the Rio map we saw at Blizzcon was way bigger than any existing PvE map.

Jetpack is an ability for brig in over watch 2 PVE. Look it up online.

The scale of the PvE does sound impressive. I wasn’t going to get OW2, mostly because PvE isn’t a big attraction to me. I like the competitive aspect of PvP.

But reading that article impressed me. I might dole out the deneiro and get it. when it goes on sale.


Dude, if she could summon jetpack cat to pew pew the bad omnics, I would only play Brig.

How would it not be clunky? It’s single target and unable to move with the team. It’s like running 6 DPS and fighting over a health pack instead of picking bap and holding down right click.

“TED,” the game’s editor

Wish there was a version of TED we could use.

I actually would love if they went into much greater technical detail about how the pieces of their engine works. There have been a handful of talks from dev conferences, but I always love to know more.

Not to mention the giant menacingly looking floating wheel-thing in the skybox as well.

Sad that they use a picture of brig after the way they shower her with nerfs.
