Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch looks incredibly enticing and the enthusiasm for the multiplayer beta hasn’t let up, even if it’s going on a vacation on December 10th. But what about content post-launch? Game director Jeff Kaplan addressed concerns of the same, stating that additional maps and heroes would be free after launch.
“There’s been some worry and concern about this. We have ideas for additional maps and heroes that we’d like to add to the game. We thought about this and we decided the best way to add them to the game is to patch them in as free content and not as [paid] DLC. So hopefully that alleviates some concerns that people have.”
That being said, there’s no time table for when these new heroes and maps would be released or even how many are planned in the long run. That being said, Kaplan did say that in terms of new characters, Blizzard will an eye on “what’s healthy for the game.”
