Earlier this month on the PTR the latest patch was launched, and is now available on Windows, Playstation 4 and Xbox one. The update brings the following to the table:

  • Game Browser — This new feature is an extension of Overwatch‘s Custom Game mode, allowing you to adjust the settings on various maps, modes, and heroes, creating your own tailor-made server
  • Capture the Flag — Capture the Rooster has been Overwatch’s most popular brawl, and now it’s here to stay as the ongoing Capture the Flag game mode in the Arcade
  • Hero Updates — Plenty of improvements have been made to Overwatch’s heroes, including Bastion, which is now stronger and more flexible with the move of power from Configuration: Sentry to Recon

Season 4 Competitive Play

Along with the new patch comes a new season of competition, and the developers of Overwatch have made a few needed improvements to kick things off. A few highlights include

  • High-level players are required to play more competitive matches to avoid inactivity decay, improving the accuracy and prestige of skill ratings
  • Only players who reach the top 500 leaderboard at the end of the season will be rewarded, providing incentive to keep up a high skill rating
  • To encourage competition, skill ratings below 500 will no longer be displayed

Now go and complete your mission.
