Overwatch 2 sound system upgrades seek to truly immerse players into the game. Blizzard has taken a big leap with the new sound design for their upcoming game.

The developers of Overwatch 2 went back to the drawing board with their sound design. Implementing a new system called the "Weapon 2.0 Sound Pass" Blizzard looks to make every weapon in their game sound and feel realistic.

These new effects are thanks to the sound team's convulsion reverb technique where in-game weapon sounds will change depending on the environment a player is in. So bullets in a warehouse will be different from outside in an open space. But those same shots inside of the warehouse will also be different if the hero is inside of a small room vs. a large walkway.

This ingenious method implemented by the Overwatch team will plunge players deep into every team fight and connect them even further with their favorite heroes. Check out BlizzConline Day 2 for more updates on Overwatch 2.
