Third time’s a charm

EDGE - - HYPE -

Bliz­zard’s third crack at Over­watch’s pro­gres­sion sys­tem sees lev­el­ling up re­warded with a loot crate con­tain­ing four purely cos­metic items of var­i­ous rar­i­ties. In ad­di­tion to ex­pected fare such as char­ac­ter skins and emotes, you’ll also chance upon new VO snip­pets, poses for the end-of-match vic­tory screen, and cus­tom an­i­ma­tions for when your work is fea­tured in the Play Of The Game video clip. Em­blems, mean­while, can be spray-painted onto level fur­ni­ture. Any RNG-in­spired frus­tra­tion will be mit­i­gated by an un­lock sys­tem that lets you trade in du­pli­cates to­wards the item your heart de­sires. It’s smart, non-in­va­sive stuff, and it’s hard to see it not stick­ing this time.
