We will remind that Blizzard has previously confirmed that Overwatch 2 is rejecting loot boxes in favor of Battle Passes and direct purchases. As it turned out, the latter can be comparable in cost to the game as a whole.

As published by user Portergauge Twitter images, in a recent poll, Blizzard Entertainment asked players how likely they were to pay in Overwatch 2:

  • $45 for Mythic skin (the rarest, available for additional customization);
  • $30 per pack (Legendary Skin, Line, Spray, Weapon Ornament, Victory Pose, Player Icon and Name Card)
  • $25 for the Legendary skin;
  • $10 for weapon decoration;
  • $5 for three graffiti.

Prices aren’t final yet, of course, but fans have already started sounding the alarm. In the Reddit forum, phrases like new level of greed», real crime», damn absurdity» etc.

Overwatch 2 Early Access and debut season launches October 4th on PC (Battle.net), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch. With the launch, the second part will be a complete replacement for the first.
