Thanks to the digital world we live in, games that are launched with glitches and other bugs can be fixed with a simple update. Even some of the best games out there have things that can be tweaked. This is especially true for big online games. Overwatch is a perfect example of this. While there have not been many complaints about the hero shooter recently, it could always use a bit of a touch up.

The first competitive season of Overwatch may be coming to close, but this title still has a long future ahead of it. A new update was just released for the PC version. Here are the patch notes below:

Map Balance Updates

  • Respawn time for defenders has been standardized to 10 seconds on all maps
  • Payload speed has been slightly reduced on Watchpoint: Gibraltar

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed a bug causing incomplete character models to load on the Hero Selection screen
  • Fixed a number of bugs causing various crashes and instability issues
  • Fixed a bug that prevented user interface elements from displaying in some languages
  • Fixed a bug that caused the placement matches screen to display when some players would disconnect and rejoin a match


  • Estádio das Rãs – Fixed a bug that allowed players to spawn as heroes other than Lúcio
  • Nepal – Fixed an issue which allowed players to get stuck outside the normal boundaries of the map
  • Temple of Anubis – Fixed a bug causing a portion of the city wall to display incorrectly on all graphics settings

While it is not much, it is always helpful knock out some bugs for all players. Blizzard has stated that these patches will find their way on to the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Overwatch as part of a larger update.
