Pleasure to the gamers who’re nonetheless scrambling to play Kiriko in aggressive mode as a result of a brand new double XP weekend for Overwatch 2 begins immediately. Blizzard is giving out some goodies as an apology for the scuffed launch of the sport. It was riddled with bugs and continues to be riddled with bugs, if I’d add, with one map at present out of rotation and Bastion straight up deleted from the sport. One in every of these goodies, although, is the double XP weekend.
The Overwatch 2 double XP weekend will will let you progress by the sport’s Battle Go sooner, which is nice information in the event you nonetheless have to get Kiriko, who’s locked behind tier 55 of the Battle Go. For Overwatch 1 house owners with out the Battle Go, I can’t say double XP is thrilling in any respect as a result of all of us acquired Kiriko at no cost already. However both means, I suppose it’s a very good excuse as any to log into the sport and grind out some video games.
The Battle Go taketh your time
Going ahead, the Battle Go would be the main means you unlock new heroes. Whereas Overwatch 1 gamers acquired Kiriko at no cost on account of neighborhood backlash, there aren’t any introduced plans to transform how heroes are launched into the Battle Go. This implies till we get additional phrase, any future heroes will possible be locked behind a excessive tier. In my private expertise, I’ve grinded at the least 30 hours of the sport thus far and nonetheless haven’t gotten far sufficient for Kiriko. (I’m not a fan.)
The double EXP weekend begins immediately, October 21, and can finish on October 24. The free rewards for the Battle Go vary from spotlight intros, skins and emotes to voice traces and even identify playing cards. In order for you a number of the different items, you’ll need to pay, so possibly this weekend isn’t as beneficiant because it appears.
