Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack Explained

When it first came out, Overwatch was met with a very positive reception from players and critics alike. It basically invented the hero shooter genre and was very popular for a time. However, certain decisions made by Activision-Blizzard caused the game to lose a lot of its momentum and subsequent player base. Now, Overwatch 2 is an opportunity to reverse course. Being free to play, it’s already very different from OW 1. Though, like many f2p games, it also has a game pack that you can buy. In OW 2’s case, it is called the Watchpoint Pack. It is an optional version of the game that comes with many extra goodies. We are going to take a look at the Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack and explain what you can get out of it.

    So if I’m reading it correctly, for 40 bucks you dont actually get overwatch 2, just some skins in OW1 and access to beta?

      OW2 is free to play. The Watchpoint pack comes with some skins (usable in OW1 and OW2), access to OW1 now if you don’t have it, access to the 2nd beta, and a battle pass and 2000VC (worth 2 more battle passes), which presumably is valued at $30. So basically is guaranteed beta access on Day 1 and some skins worth $10 (assuming you’ll get the battle passes anyways).

    Do you know if the beta access and overwatch 1 come in two different codes?
