Overwatch 2 has 'significant engine upgrades': better graphics & more

The 'significant engine upgrades' offer LARGER maps for co-op, new enemies, and better graphics

So, Blizzard did something kinda big by announcing Overwatch 2 during its BlizzCon 2019 opening keynote, and while many big fans of the franchise (like myself, it's my most-played game of all time) are a little mixed about it... there are some good things inside.

First, Overwatch 2 has "significant engine upgrades" that usher in the ability of offering much bigger maps that will be perfect for the new co-op mode, new enemies and factions, and better graphics in Overwatch 2 than its predecessor, Overwatch.

Blizzard have made a complete overhaul of the Overwatch engine, with the PvE mode and graphics/engine changes totally exclusive to Overwatch 2. While more of the Overwatch + Overwatch 2 worlds are mixed, the graphics upgrade is solely exclusive to Overwatch 2.

Activision-Blizzard have gotta make those Benjamins, ya'll.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
