The company apologized and decided to please the frustrated players. All users who log into Overwatch 2 from October 25 until the end of the first season, will receive:
Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary skin.
Keychain for weapons “First Aid Kit” (Health Pack Weapon Charm).
To help users “catch up on lost time”, developers will hold a temporary promotion – on weekends, gamers will be able to earn twice as many experience points. The exact dates of the event will be confirmed later.
