After three weeks, Overwatch’s latest set of patch notes is finally on live servers. Blizzard seems to have delayed the release of this patch by one week to line up with Overwatch’s release on the Nintendo Switch and the Halloween Terror event, making this a very impactful day in the life of the game.
It’s worth noting that this patch does have a large download size because of all of the content being added. Plan accordingly so that you can quickly get it downloaded and begin earning those coveted Halloween event skins.
What’s in the Patch?
For a complete overview of the parts of the patch that were taken from the PTR patch notes on September 24, click this link. This covers balance changes made to heroes.
Additionally, the Arcade now holds seven cards to better accommodate more Arcade and Workshop modes, Season 2 of Competitive 3v3 Lockout Elimination has begun, and Blizzcon skins are now available. For the complete notes, check out the official website for more details.
