Overwatch Update: Blizzard Discusses The Possibility Of A Major Social Feature
Blizzard acknowledges a staple social feature for Overwatch that they might eventually work on. Meanwhile, a new update solves one of the game's biggest problems.
Blizzard Addresses Clans And Groups for Overwatch
Clans and groups have always been some of the prime features for multiplayer games. It allows players to organize and plan parties with friends or strangers without much hassle. Now, it seems like fans of Blizzard's first-person shooter are requesting for the said feature.
Luckily, PVP Live reports that game director Jeff Kaplan has responded to the ongoing request. He claimed that the team would be excited to work on a similar system. While Kaplan might have just hinted at the idea, he placed heavy emphasis regarding how excited they would be to work on that certain feature.
As of now, players can only use their friend list to form groups before starting a game. If Blizzard plans to implement this feature, this would be another step in the right direction as other games like StarCraft II and Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive make use of clans. Moreover, it would help solo queue players find others to make a full team before playing competitive matches.
Latest Patch Blocks Cheaters and Ensures Fair Play
That aside, a new patch has finally tackled the issue regarding the mass wave of cheaters and hackers, as per Express.co.uk. Starting on Feb. 17, only players who have a valid game license can access the game. That means those Korean players who relied on third-party programs to cheat in the game will no longer be able to use that method.
Blizzard confirmed that they will introduce the new feature to Overwatch before applying it to other games like StarCraft II and Diablo III. They claimed that this method will help players enjoy the game without having to worry about any "unintended side-effects." These adjustments will preserve the "integrity" of their games and ensure that all fans will experience fair play.
