Remember that the above is only for the Overwatch League Experimental Card Tournament, with no current plans to implement these outside of it. There are certainly a lot of changes for most every character, so it’s worth looking at if you are playing in that tournament. It will be interesting to see if any of the changes do end up making their way to the regular gameplay as well, but for now they’re saying it won’t.

Overwatch is available for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. For more information regarding this patch, visit the official Overwatch website.
