Overwatch has been a profitable project for Blizzard so far. While the player base is in love with the game, there are a few details that core gamers would like to add to the game in order to make the experience even better.

One of the most requested features by players is a map with a stormy weather. There’s an ongoing discussion on Reddit in which players agree the addition of such a map would be beneficial for the game. Of course, weather conditions should only be an aesthetic detail without any impact on visibility or other aspects of the game.

Here’s what one Redditor said about the idea of stormy maps in Overwatch:

“A map with stormy weather would be very nice to see in Overwatch (without the weather affecting visibility, obviously). What do you think about it?”

On the other hand, a number of people agree that a stormy map should at least slightly affect the gameplay to make it more interesting.

“This would be the BEST though, imagine smoke screens blocking vision but not bullets, you can just fade away and have an insane amount of maneuverability instead of dying straight away (but still maybe dying). Imagine Pharah’s bouncing around into the fog – you can’t see her but she can’t see you either. I think we are in need of more hero’s before this becomes a reality (ability to adapt and etc) but LOS breakers would be one of the best things mechanics that Blizzard can add to this game.”

With the Reddit thread having exploded, players hope that someone from Blizzard will acknowledge player requests and eventually develop a map with various weather conditions.

What do you think about the idea of stormy maps in Overwatch? Would you like to see at least one and should it affect the gameplay? Let us know in the comments below.
