What were your goals when designing the Ep.3, Act II Battlepass?
Sean Marino, Art Lead: This is the first battle pass to feature a Phantom, Vandal and Operator skin. Artisan and Varnish should feel like they’re made of luxury high-end materials, while Nitro is very graphic and flashy. For the accessories, we tried to incorporate a lot more jokes and memes into this battle pass, especially since players really seemed to enjoy some of the more meme stuff we’d put into others.
What did you take inspiration from / any notable concepts you wanted to convey with the Ep. 3, Act II Battlepass?
Preeti Khanolkar, Senior Producer: There’s a few sprays and cards inspired by community jokes or memes, but I’ll let the community guess which ones those are. The Follow Me Buddy is probably the best buddy we’ve ever put in a battle pass, so I suggest paying close attention to it. The Versus // Phoenix + Phoenix card is a really satisfying card to add since it ties back to the cinematic we released a few months ago and it’s something we’ve hinted at in a previous battle pass through the Broken Mirrors card.
Any unexpected challenges or novelty stories you'd like to share when designing the Ep. 3, Act II Battlepass?
Preeti Khanolkar: We’re trying to create more “series” content so that players who enjoy collecting items can add to their collections. Some examples of these are the Map Schema, Weapon Manufacturer Schema, and Versus cards. The newest addition we’re excited about are the Unstoppable card series, the first of which features Reyna in her ult form draining the souls of enemies she’s killed. These cards should portray our agents in their most powerful state, their power fantasy. This idea may feel familiar to players who were around during Closed Beta, when we featured a few similar cards for Phoenix, Viper, etc. We get a lot of messages from players asking us to bring back those Beta cards. While those cards won’t be coming back in the same form, the Unstoppable series is our way of paying homage to those old cards. So, yes, we’ll eventually do an Unstoppable Viper and Phoenix card!
