Overwatch's first patch was released today, August 25th, 2010 at around 22:00 UTC/GMT. This update includes all fixes from the 1.1.0+Sv10 server-side patch, and is now available via the Updater utility (in-game), or as a full installer/Zip file. Server files have also been released in a Zip file (right here).
IMPORTANT NOTE TO OVERWATCH 1.1.0 PLAYERS: If your Steam installation is located on a hard drive that is different from the drive where Windows is installed, the Updater utility you currently have will not be able to update your copy of Overwatch to 1.1.2. You will need to redownload the installer (Overwatch_112.exe or newer) and use it to bring Overwatch up to the latest build. The new Updater utility included in 1.1.2 will now function correctly no matter where Steam is installed. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work hard to improve our utility!
Here is the complete list of changes:
Plenty! With the public release and patch out of the way, our entire focus is now on Overwatch's next update, which will feature a long list of improvements to our official maps (Citadel and Breach) as well as a few neat new features. More information and a sneak peek can be found in the upcoming Development Report.
When can you expect this update? Early September, which is only a few weeks away!
