Overwatch 2 is about to be launched tomorrow, while the first title has already been taken offline. Now, Overwatch community users have done the math and found that the cost for new players to purchase cosmetics from the first game amounts to over $ 12,000.
Since its original release in 2016, Overwatch has been a popular team-based multiplayer shooter for many years, but tomorrow it will be replaced by its sequel, Overwatch 2. Although its launch has been highly anticipated for some, players are divided when it comes to how the new game will live up to the first.
Overwatch 2 will go from a base price of sixty dollars to a free-to-play model that includes a multitude of in-game purchases. Players who have an account and have played the first game will continue to have access to the cosmetics earned by playing. However, there are ways for new players to earn these same cosmetics in its sequel. These first-time players can purchase the items, which were available for free in Overwatch 1, with an Overwatch 2 Battle Pass that includes skins, emotes, and more, or earn credits from the game’s weekly challenges.
As we can see, one player did a couple of maths and showed that a newbie would have to spend $ 12,000 to buy all the cosmetics from the first chapter. Another user who replied to the thread on Reddit says that to get these cosmetics without spending a penny and with only credits earned in the game, it would take a player a whopping 450 years.
Many users are afraid that the game, being a free-to-play model, will end up in the same way as Diablo Immortal. We just have to wait for the first impressions of the players, once Overwatch 2 is available tomorrow.
