Blizzard might be dipping its toes into the battle royale scene as Overwatch 2 players have discovered a new game mode in the Custom Games menu.
A few hiccups plagued Overwatch 2 Launching October 4. “Unexpected server errors” and server disconnections have prevented players around the world from accessing the highly anticipated sequel to the hero shooter.
Snow storm responded and confirmed that a massive DDoS attack caused server issues. If you were one of the lucky players to enter, you would immediately notice the game’s full plate of new offerings.
The most significant changes in Monitor 2 are 5v5 gameplay, tank changes, new heroes and new maps. A new addition flying under the radar is a game mode that takes inspiration from other battle royale titles.
Overwatch 2 arrived on October 4, 2022.
Overwatch 2 Players Check Out Potential Battle Royale Game Mode
Overwatch news account Overwatch Cavalry shared an image of the new Survivor game mode in the Overwatch 2 Custom Games menu.
They said, “The mode is currently only available in custom games and has settings mentioning a ‘circle’ that closes over time (Battle Royale style).”
In Survivor’s settings, you can adjust the modes circle close speed, circle close start timer, end circle radius, and score to win.
Blizzard acquired the Proletariat in June, the development studio behind magical battle royale Spellbreak.
Spellbreak’s servers are scheduled to shut down in early 2023. Blizzard has transitioned all 100 Proletariat developers to the World of Warcraft production team. Blizzard has never confirmed how much of the team’s work will be reflected in the Dragonflight patch content.
World of Warcraft dragon flight launch in November. It will be interesting to see if Blizzard employs the help of outside help for a potential battle royale. For instance, 11 studios allegedly helped develop Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
We’ll provide an update once we have more concrete details on survival.
