Blizzard promises future Overwatch maps and characters will be free


Blizzard’s Overwatch team already has ideas for additional maps and characters that will come post-launch. What are they? Well, the studio isn’t saying, but it did state that if and when any are developed, they will be given to players for free.

“We decided the best way to add [characters and maps] to the game is to patch them in as free content and not DLC,” Game Director Jeff Kaplan said in a new developer update video. “Hopefully that alleviates some concerns that people have.”

Kaplan also confirmed that the team is adding the ability to turn down music and keep the sound working even while tabbed out, as well as the inclusion of a possible “kill feed.” You can watch the dev video after the break.
