Gestern Abend veröffentlichten die Entwickler von Overwatch einen neuen Patch für Windows-PC, PlayStation 4 und Xbox One, dessen unterschiedliche Inhalte und Auswirkungen selbstverständlich auch dieses Mal wieder in offiziellen englischen Patchnotes festgalten wurden. Dieser informativen Übersicht zufolge handelte es sich bei dieser neuen Spielversion um ein überraschend großes Update, welches neben einer Vielzahl von notwendigen Fehlerbehebungen auch noch das Ingame Event “Overwatch-Archiv”, die zu diesem Feiertag gehörenden kosmetischen Gegenstände, eine Reihe von umfangreichen Spielbalanceänderungen, einige Anpassungen am Interface, kleinere Änderungen am Meldesystem und ein Feature zum Meiden von bestimmten Spielern mit sich brachte. Genauere Details zu den Inhalten dieses Updates findet ihr in den weiter unten eingebauten Patchnotes.

Zusätzlich dazu beinhaltete dieser neue Patch scheinbar auch noch eine Reihe von Änderungen an der technischen Seite des Spiels, die die Größe dieses Updates leider auf über 14 GB brachten und viele bestehende Spieldaten durch anders gelagerte neue Daten ersetzten. Diese technischen Verbesserungen sollen laut einer auf Twitter veröffentlichten Nachricht auf lange Sicht gesehen dafür sorgen, dass zukünftige Update für Overwatch wesentlich kleiner ausfallen und Spieler nicht mehr ganz so viel Zeit in das Herunterladen von neuen Spielversionen investieren müssen.

 

 

[PC/PS4/XB1] Overwatch-Patchnotes – 10. April 2018:

PATCH HIGHLIGHTS

New Seasonal Event: Overwatch Archives 2018

Experience pivotal moments from history in Overwatch Archives. Join a team of four heroes and participate in cooperative, story-driven missions that give a new perspective on the era before the fall of Overwatch.

This year, take command of the agents of Blackwatch and face off against Talon in an exciting new brawl, Retribution. Players also get a second chance to stop an omnic insurrection as last year’s Uprising mission returns for a rematch. You’ll earn Archives Loot Boxes as you play, unlocking new cosmetics based on moments from Overwatch’s past including legendary skins like Blackwatch Moira, Scion Hanzo, Soldier: 24 Reaper, Talon Doomfist, Specimen 28 Winston, and more.

 

 

GENERAL UPDATES

General

  • Players can choose to “Avoid as Teammate” with a dropdown menu in the Career Profile

 

Developer Comments: The addition of the “Avoid as Teammate” option gives players the ability to craft their online gameplay experience. Up to two players can be selected with this feature. If you use the “Avoid as Teammate” option on a player, the matchmaker will no longer place you on a team with the avoided player for one week. To learn more about this feature, click here.

 

[PS4/XB1] Voice Chat Mode

  • An option to toggle Voice Chat Mode has been added under Options > Sound

 

Report Menu

  • The “Poor Teamwork” dropdown menu option has been removed
  • The “Griefing” dropdown menu option has been renamed “Gameplay Sabotage”

 

Developer Comments: Due to player confusion about the most appropriate category to report players for poor or toxic gameplay, we are removing the Poor Teamwork option from the reporting system. Players should instead use the Gameplay Sabotage option when players actively harass or disrupt their own team with game mechanics or their actions. Players should not be reported simply for performing poorly, since everyone occasionally has a bad game.

 

Heroes

  • Sombra’s “Enemies Hacked” commendation card now also displays her offensive assists
  • Brigitte’s Golden Weapon variant will now also give her a golden shield
  • Changed Mercy’s Valkyrie voice line

 

 

HERO UPDATES

Brigitte

  • Barrier Shield
    • An option to “Toggle Barrier” has been added under Options > Controls > Brigitte

 

D.Va

  • Micro Missiles
    • Explosive damage reduced from 6 to 4
  • Boosters
    • Impact damage reduced from 25 to 10

 

Developer Comments: D.Va’s burst potential is a bit too high, so we’re reducing the damage of her Micro Missiles and Boosters impact. Prior to this change, each missile dealt 3 impact damage and 6 explosive damage. We’re reducing explosive damage from 6 to 4 but leaving the impact damage the same, the net result being 21% damage reduction.

 

McCree

  • Added additional voice lines for Lifeguard McCree

 

Mei

  • Endothermic Blaster
    • Now pierces through enemies

 

Developer Comments: This change helps Mei combat multiple targets that are clumped up and makes it easier for her to keep freezing a specific target if another enemy gets in the way. This change also helps her ultimate more consistently freeze enemy targets, especially if they are near each other. Note: While her shots now pierce enemies, they still do not pierce barriers such as Reinhardt’s shield.

 

Reaper

  • Death Blossom
    • Reloads Hellfire Shotguns after use
  • Wraith Form
    • Move speed bonus increased from 25% to 50%
    • You can now cancel the ability by pressing the Shift or Primary Fire hotkey

 

Developer Comments: These changes help Reaper use Wraith Form more consistently as an escape, but they also open up new options, such as chasing down key targets.

 

Moira

  • Biotic Grasp
    • Transparency increased the closer you are to a target
  • Coalescence
    • Now becomes more transparent the closer its visual effects are to a player’s camera
  • Fade
    • Transparency increased the closer you are to a target

 

Developer’s Comment: Due to issues with visibility, we have made most of Moira’s visual effects fade away the closer they are to the camera. We have also made modifications to Coalescence to greatly increase the ability for foes and allies alike to see through it when facing it.

 

Zenyatta

  • Orb of Destruction
    • Secondary fire rate of fire reduced by 15%

 

Developer Comments: Zenyatta is meant to be able to deal a lot of damage, especially for a support, but his alternate fire burst damage was a bit too high. This change keeps the overall damage the same but lowers the DPS slightly and makes it harder to hit multiple shots at very long ranges.

 

 

GAME BROWSER AND CUSTOM GAMES UPDATES

General

  • Lockout Elimination cards in the Arcade are now just referred to as Elimination
  • Added Ayutthaya to the map rotation in 3v3 Elimination game modes

 

 

MAP UPDATES

Blizzard World

  • Moved the first payload checkpoint (Pylon Terrace) back 10 meters

 

Developer Comments: We moved the checkpoint back for two reasons. The original location swung the map’s balance too far in one direction (favoring the defenders). Also, once the payload reached the checkpoint, defenders returning from spawn could get pinned in this area, usually resulting in their death.

 

Hollywood

  • Corrected the spelling on a poster from Thespian 4.0 to Thespion 4.0

 

 

USER INTERFACE UPDATES

General

  • Heroes can now be selected by double-clicking the hero icon during Hero

 

Select

  • Added leaderboard information to the competitive information screen. This can be accessed by right-clicking the menu on the competitive card
  • Simplified Hero Select tips for roles
