New “Overwatch” patch notes have just been released by Blizzard. The Overwatch PTR servers have also been confirmed to be offline for a certain period of time. In that case, players will have to wait a little longer before they can test the new patch on the Public Test Region.

In addition, it is important to realize that “Overwatch” PTR servers are exclusive to PC. On the positive side, Xbox One and PS4 versions might also be available in the future. Furthermore, one of the biggest changes in the new “Overwatch” update is the new Capture the Flag mode.

Apparently, the new Capture the Flag mode is now being added permanently from its Year of the Rooster run. In addition, the rumored patch for “Overwatch’s” Bastion is now being brought into reality. This revamp is supposed to make Bastion feel stronger, as well as more flexible in the game.

In addition, Kaplan stated that they’re still fixing some server issues that is only visible in a public environment. Furthermore, numerous changes have hit the PTR servers which will be open for testing.

Numerous sensitivity options have been added for some heroes. In other words, it will supposedly make Widowmaker, Zenyatta, Sombra, Zarya and other heroes with targetable ability much more deadly. In addition, Blizzard released a new feature called Server Browser.

‘Overwatch’ PTR Update: Server Browser

Starting today, every player can create their own “Overwatch” experience with the ability to share it with other people. The Server Browser is an extension of the Custom Game mode which allows the players to adjust the settings on various modes, heroes, and maps. In other words, players can now make their own unique server.

For instance, players will be able to increase Phara’s missile speed or even remove McCree’s Combat Roll. After adjusting the settings, players will be able to launch their game after they set up the permissions. In addition, players can limit the number of players that can join their game by simply toggling the Friends Only and Invite Only options.

On the other hand, players can also put it into a Public mode. In that case, anyone would be able to join the custom-made game freely. Furthermore, the Server Browser mode is currently being tested on “Overwatch” PTR servers hence, things are still subject to change.
