Overwatch Hero 32: 4 Things Fans Want
Overwatch Hero 32 is likely still months away from release, but Overwatch fans are insatiable. Even in the wake of Sigma's release, players are already theorizing about who will next join the cast and what they could add to the game. Here are four things fans are looking forward to with Hero 32.
1. Not a Damage Hero
Overwatch has more damage heroes than any other archetype by a wide margin. That remains true even as a majority of the post-release additions have been supports and tanks. The development team should continue to narrow the gap with Hero 32.
2. A Black Woman
Despite a fairly inclusive cast, Overwatch has come under fire for failing to add a black woman to its cast in the three years since its release. That criticism grew when the team introduced Sojourn, a black woman, only to pass over her for Hero 31. Filling this gap would make many fans happy.
3. More Villains
Overwatch's playable characters come from many points in the good/bad continuum, but fans always go wild when villains join the game. These antagonists help flesh out the world, and Overwatch fans love a good bit of lore. Speaking of which…
4. Lore Significance
Overwatch's story has moved at a snail's pace, and fans are growing frustrated. The world and its history continue to be fleshed out, but progress in the actual arc is infinitesimal. The next hero, whoever it is, should throw fans a bone and push the story along.
