Upcoming Overwatch Patch Will Include Custom Game Features, Server Browser, and More

on February 8, 2017 8:02 AM

In a new Developer Update, Game Director Jeff Kaplan talked about and revealed some of the changes coming to Overwatch, Blizzard’s mega popular first person shooter.

Kaplan reveals that among many other things, a server browser is coming to the game, this will enable players to select servers to play on in their region.

Additionally, Kaplan also revealed a number of mutators and features will be available for players to toggle on and off via new custom game modes. This means you can mess around with things like Road Hog’s hook refresh time, and things of this nature.

Capture the Flag will also be added to Overwatch on a permanent basis as a custom game mode. In custom game modes, players will now be able to gain experience as well. Additionally, nine additional maps have been fitted to be compatible with Capture The Rooster.

The patch that will deliver all of this is slated to go into The Public Testing Realm soon.
