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 as we speak. 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 the moment out of rotation and Bastion straight up deleted from the sport. Certainly one of these goodies, although, is the double XP weekend.
The Overwatch 2 double XP weekend will will let you progress via the sport’s Battle Move sooner, which is sweet information in case you nonetheless must get Kiriko, who’s locked behind tier 55 of the Battle Move. For Overwatch 1 house owners with out the Battle Move, I can’t say double XP is thrilling in any respect as a result of all of us obtained Kiriko totally free already. However both means, I suppose it’s a great excuse as any to log into the sport and grind out some video games.
The Battle Move taketh your time
Going ahead, the Battle Move would be the main means you unlock new heroes. Whereas Overwatch 1 gamers obtained Kiriko totally free as a consequence of neighborhood backlash, there aren’t any introduced plans to transform how heroes are launched into the Battle Move. This implies till we get additional phrase, any future heroes will doubtless be locked behind a excessive tier. In my private expertise, I’ve grinded a minimum of 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 as we speak, October 21, and can finish on October 24. The free rewards for the Battle Move vary from spotlight intros, skins and emotes to voice traces and even title playing cards. If you’d like among the different items, you’ll need to pay, so possibly this weekend isn’t as beneficiant because it appears.
