Blizzard teases Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017

Blizzard teases Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017”

Last year, Blizzard replaced the game's loot boxes with glowing jack-o-lanterns, and rolled out more than 100 new cosmetic items including skins, sprays, profile icons, emotes, and more, and also debuted the first-ever PvE Brawl, Junkenstein's Revenge.

A few weeks ago, "Overwatch" game director, #Jeff Kaplan, teased the community with a new hero that might arrive soon. "It's very easy to post the wrong thing and make a "promise" to the community that no one meant to make", Kaplan said in a statement. "Once we say we're working on something, we're not allowed to 'take it back.' It's set in stone". So many big games unintentionally put up a wall, implying through their communities, marketing or even gameplay, that they are only for one kind of player or another.

We're really starting to get into the Halloween spirit, so this announcement couldn't have come at a better time. "But we do want you to know that we-the OW development team-are here with you, listening". "The bad behavior is not just ruining the experience for one another, but it's actually making the game progress in terms of developement at a much slower rate". The "public speaking/posting" part of the job is downright scary and intimidating.

In a statement on the official forum, Kaplan mentioned that "if you'll allow me to speak openly for a moment - it's scary. It often feels like there is no winning". This is to make it easier for players to obtain skins they missed out on previous year since 2017 Legendary skins will cost 3,000 coins. We heard just recently that fear of dealing with the toxicity of their own audience is a key force prohibiting developers of all scales from detailing their creation processes across the industry.

"Of course the team talks about Mercy. It's not exactly what I would call a safe environment for creative people to openly express their thoughts and feelings".
