Overwatch 2 is one of the most anticipated games of 2022.
As we get closer to release, more information is pouring out about the new character designs and the overhaul of the game’s ping system.
While not a major change, one particular change in the sequel has drawn heavy criticism from the player base.
Overwatch 2’s UI redesign is dividing players
With such a passionate fanbase, even the smallest changes to Overwatch 2 are sure to elicit passionate reactions from players.
If user MoreElegant It was posted on Overwatch’s subreddit and shows the differences in Overwatch 2’s ultimate display from the original. It drew considerable attention and criticism.
The new ultimate load counter is a much more simplified design, featuring a solid orange ring instead of the old, big yellow ring.
The Supercharged Ultimate Gauge is now white on the inside and also has a smaller and simpler design.
One Overwatch fan wasn’t happy with the redesign: “I call it. OW2 will feel like an off-brand shooter trying to rip off OW1. Minimal just looks and feels cheap and I’m almost positive they simplify everything so they can go mobile.”
One of the top comments was, “It looks like a bad Chinese knockoff of Overwatch.”
Another user realized that while the redesign doesn’t look good, their focus is more on gameplay than looks.
“Something like the old one, maybe just because I’m used to it. At the end of the day I don’t care what the symbols look like exactly, please just let the gameplay be good.”
Overwatch 2’s first closed beta starts on April 26th.
