Overwatch‘s latest Public Test Server (PTR) patch is named after a returning event and a highly anticipated character.
Redditors took to Notepad to delve into the latest patch, uncovering its name: 18.104.22.168 Doomfist/Summer Games.
In the immortal words of Lucio, let’s break it down.
First, the Summer Games reference suggests that we’ll see the return of Overwatch‘s Summer Games event. Easy, right? The event first took place in August 2016, timed for the Rio Summer Olympic Games. It came with new skins, emotes, Achievements and the introduction of a new Lucio game mode, likened to football. This 2017 event appears to be a chance to mop up on what players missed the last time.
We’ll have more on either topic as it becomes available.
Overwatch is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. The game is currently in the midst of its fifth competitive season.
