Overwatch 2 says goodbye to loot boxes

While the first opus of Overwatch was released a few years ago, the mechanics of unlocking hero skins weren’t to everyone’s taste. It was thus necessary to unlock loot boxes, or to buy them in order to obtain a selection of objects at random. If that’s still nice compared to Blizzard’s current practices with Diablo Immortal, this could be more than risky for some players. Good news, things will finally change.

A Season Pass and an in-game store to replace Loot Boxes!

As we learned that Overwatch 2 would transition to a free-to-play model during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, work is ramping up behind the scenes. A few months before its availability on October 4, we learn that the publisher has changed its tune on the means of acquiring the different skins. And fortunately, as the characters are now numerous.

It’s official: loot boxes will be part of the license’s past, developers preferring to bring new solutions to unlock content:

  • Through the Season Pass
  • Via the in-game store

Good news for players who can invest time or money for the content they want rather than leaving it to chance. As a reminder, the title will be Free-to-Play and will be playable from October 4, while a beta will begin in the coming days. You can find the latest trailer below:
