Overwatch 2 Transformers Collab And Skins Are Well Received By Fans

As Overwatch 2 gears up for the release of Season 12, we've just received the mid-season patch for Season 11. Alongside this update comes a highly anticipated crossover with Transformers! With new skins, voice lines, weapons, and more, all themed after the Autobots and Decepticons, there's plenty to be excited about.

Let's take a moment to discuss everything included in the Season 11 Transformers crossover with Overwatch 2 and go over all the details of this exciting new collaboration.

Overwatch 2 Fans Are Thrilled About New Transformers Crossover Skins and Cosmetics

According to the official developer patch notes discussing the new Overwatch 2 x Transformers crossover, "Join the epic battle between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS with Optimus Prime as Reinhardt, Megatron as Ramattra, Bumblebee as Bastion, and Arcee as Illari. Pick up these limited-time skins in the in-game Premium Shop today." This event starts on July 9, 2024, and will likely conclude at the end of the season, which we expect to be around the end of August 2024.

Additionally, new voice lines have been added for each of the heroes involved in the crossover, along with an exclusive Ramattra sticker. Fans are extremely happy with the crossover, especially loving the new skins. My favorites are Bastion's Bumblebee form when he goes into his Assault configuration (turret form) and Reinhardt's Optimus skin, which is just a chef's kiss, in my opinion.

Fans on X (Twitter)are also expressing their positivity about the crossover. One user commented on the trailer, saying, "This has to be one of the most epic animations ever," while another stated on Reddit, "Optimus Rein has no business going so hard." The skins and the crossover as a whole have been well-received, and we couldn't agree more.

Transformers likely hold a special place in the childhoods or pasts of many players, and seeing them crossover with our favorite Overwatch 2 heroes is a dream come true for both players and developers. Here's hoping that the rest of Season 11 goes well and that the crossover, along with the other additions for this season, carries us gracefully into Season 12.
