Overwatch 2 beta player redesigns ‘immersive’ scoreboard and fans love it

An Overwatch 2 beta player has done a clean redesign of the game’s updated scoreboard, and fans want this implemented into the FPS.

The highly anticipated Overwatch 2 beta finally dropped on April 26 when players first got their hands on the sequel.

The shooter features a handful of gameplay and visual changes, including edits from the heroes Bastion and Sombra.

Another big change for the team-based shooter came to the scoreboard, which has been completely reworked. While fans have indicated that the change is a step in the right direction, a fan mock-up of the new design is making players’ mouths water.

Overwatch 2 scoreboard concept art goes viral

Reddit user tomas1352 posted their thoughts on what the OW2 scoreboard should look like to cheering applause.

Tomas’ scoreboard has the new ‘KDA’ style screen and makes it transparent so pulling it up doesn’t completely interrupt the game.

Plus, it’s more compact and has character portraits in the center of the screen rather than on the edge, making it easier to navigate on the fly. The ultimate teammate icons also glow when finished.

Tomas explained in the comment section their thought process behind the concept art: “I felt like the current scoreboard is way too big and too solid, taking you out of the game. So I made a rough concept of what I would look like. took some inspiration from recent concepts and brought the important information to the center of the screen.”

The post immediately rose to the top of the Overwatch Reddit with over 3,500 upvotes in less than one day.

Users in the comment section indicated how much they loved the redesign. One said: “This is exactly what we need. By having it transparent, it doesn’t block the screen (obviously), and with this layout, your eye is instantly drawn to the important stuff. absolutely perfect”

In the early days of the beta alone, it’s possible for OW2 to make changes to the new leaderboard and a host of other features.

And if they change the scoreboard, fans hope Blizzard gets a tally from Tomas.
