Players Want Overwatch To Support Australian Wildfires
Unfortunately, Australia’s episode of wildfires has not ended for months, and it is understood that such events have serious consequences for the flora, fauna, and surrounding community. Gradually, various countries and organizations responded by repairing the damage in the fight against the flames. In that sense, a group of players thought our industry was supposed to do the same and asked Blizzard to help.
According to a report from Dotesports, Overwatch fans made a request to Blizzard via reddit in which they requested the company to launch some special skins crafted by firefighters for the characters of the game, as part of a campaign in support of the wildfire situation in Australia. For Junkrat and Roadhog, who could see several changes in their design and shots to match them in the style of a firefighter suit and squad, the initiative would be feasible, according to Overwatch players.
Hey Blizzard, any chance of whipping up a couple of firefighter skins for Junkrat and Roadhog to raise money for the Aussie wildfires?
Fans also reminded Blizzard that in the past they’ve conducted a campaign to fight breast cancer with Mercy as a symbol, so they think it’s possible to do something similar with the Australian situation. Lastly, the players ‘ proposal has received a great response from the community, and it will be up to Blizzard and the Overwatch team if they want to do it or not.
You did it with Mercy for breast cancer research, and it was a great success. Even Junkrat would get on board with this: he wants to blow things up, not burn the world down.
BlizzCon 2019 has been used in other reports to thank all the company’s fans and their franchises. One that has received a lot of coverage is Overwatch, as the sequel is in development has been announced. Another aspect about the game that the development team has just revealed is that it won’t have as many new characters as it did with Overwatch in its launch.
Jeff Kaplan talked about what has the most excited fans in an interview with VG247: the new characters that will make their Overwatch 2 debut. Although the sequel’s ambition is fantastic, Kaplan cautioned players not to get too excited and expect the same amount of new characters that released the first installment. They’re going to be less this time, though.
In terms of characters, there will be multiple. It won’t be like Overwatch, in which there were 21, that’s excessive and could be extremely disruptive to the game. But we want it to be big and shocking, so there will be multiple heroes.
Overwatch is a cooperative and competitive first-person action video game developed by Blizzard, creators of games like Starcraft, Diablo, or Warcraft that addresses a first-person profile shooter game for the first time. The storyline is set in a distant future of fantasy, where thousands of heroes are the only ones capable of protecting peace on Earth from the threat of hostile robots.
I remind you that Blizzard’s Overwatch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC was released on May 24, 2019.
