Developers Update Discuss New Additions
The next Seasonal Event for Overwatch is about to launch and Year of the Dog would seem to bring a lot more with it than new skins and emotes.
New Overwatch Map
This new map, however, also has a little added bonus. It has been specifically designed to incorporate a ‘capture the flag’ mode. Although this isn’t new for Overwatch, it is, however, the first instance a map has been ‘purpose-built’ for the mode.
Capture the Flag
While capture the flag has been seen before, Jeff Kaplan wants to assure fans that improvements will be made. Specifically, the biggest grumble most fans had was the number of games which ended in draws. He has assured us that the mode has been tweaked so that there will always be a winner based on a sudden death mode.
The sudden death will take the form of each team flag being periodically moved closer to the centre of the map. This creating less ground for players to cover. In fairness, sounds like a good solution to me.
Year of the Dog
The capture the flag mode will also have a bonus feature within the 4 week Year of the Dog seasonal event where the top 500 players will each receive a unique spray and icons. See, we knew skins and emotes would come into this somewhere!
Overwatch – The Year of the Dog Seasonal Event launched on February the 8th.
