Overwatch is a fan favorite game for many gamers. Fans have been playing Overwatch for a long time since it was originally released in 2016. The Blizzard game has seen many updates and expansions over the years and now fans have a chance to buy some classic skins in the shop before the release of Overwatch 2.
Overwatch 2 is set to release on Oct. 4, 2022. The heavily anticipated Blizzard sequel to Overwatch has been in development for a long time and is finally ready to launch in the next month. You can find the trailer for Overwatch 2 below:
That being said, with one door opening, another door is closing. Overwatch has been a must-play game for many gamers over the past six years, and now with the release of Overwatch 2, many will be saying goodbye to the original game soon. One reason to still get online is some recent news regarding classic skins in the game.
Overwatch Fans Have One Last Chance to Buy These Classic Skins
Overwatch has added all their hero cosmetics back into the shop until the start of Overwatch 2 on Oct. 4. This means everyone has a chance to grab a skin they missed in the past right now ahead of the release of Overwatch 2.
While fans have been a bit shocked by the price of some skins in the past, this is a great opportunity to see if there is any skin you are missing out on and want for the release of the new game.
Considering Overwatch 2 will allow gamers to carry over their skins and items from the first game, the news that gamers can pick up any skins they are missing on now is big for the next game. It was announced a while back that skins and items will carry over into the new game, and that just makes this event until Oct. 4 that much more important for anyone looking to start the new game with a lot of customization options.
