Overwatch, the multiplayer-only game by Blizzard, just received a small update yesterday. While the update is mostly focused on bug fixes, it brings the Summer Games 2021 Event to the game. Play the event to get several exclusive skins like Poolside Ashe, Sprinkles Mei, and Mermaid Symmetra. You can also unlock skins from previous year’s Summer Games. More information is available on the official site.

The June 20 Update makes one minor change to Baptiste. His Immortality Field looks similar to a Disco Ball now. As mentioned, several bugs have been fixed, such as the bug where console players can’t report players using BattleTags, and the problem with the text chat scroll bar.

We have mentioned the rest of the changes below.


  • Fixed a bug that resulted in replay lists appearing empty
  • Fixed a bug that causes players to receive an error message when whispering between different platforms
  • [Affected Platforms] Fixed a bug that caused gyro sensitivity to be reduced when playing with PC players
  • Fixed a bug with Mei’s Blizzard that allowed it to fall into a small section of collision on King’s Row
  • Fixed server load problems that could result from moving players between teams
  • Fixed rounding errors that could result in inaccurate coordinates for effect actions that have reevaluation disabled
  • Fixed Evaluate Once values not evaluating as expected when part of consecutive Start Camera actions
  • Fixed a bug in which Start Damage Over Time was unaffected by Start Damage Modification
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Continue action to misbehave if an "If action" were between it and the enclosing loop

The complete patch notes are available on the official site as well.

Overwatch is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can play the title on the next-gen console as well using backward compatibility.
