Overwatch Highlights update
Get ready to relive your finest moments in Overwatch, as the new Highlights Update redefines how you show off your skills!
The highlights update is all about quality-of-life changes towards the highlight system and how the game stores player’s highlights. Previously the game would select several key points from each game you played, storing them temporarily in the highlights menu. The only problem with this however is that these clips would be removed when the game was closed (either by choice or due to game crash), resulting in the files being lost.
In the new system, highlights will be kept for 24 hours in the game’s files, with the option to download these files to your system’s hard drive for later viewing or compilation.
A minor new feature will be the ability to choose what you consider a highlight. by setting a specific key (or keys), the player will be able to point out certain times during a match that they want to record, regardless of what the default highlight would be. This means that even if a moment didn’t score many kills, it can still be recorded as a memorable moment during a match. Console players ,can still download footage, but less customization will be made available.
Unrelated to highlights but still worth mentioning is the reduction of duplicates of rewards from Loot-Boxes. While this means you`ll get more of what you don’t have already, blizzard is also upping the amount of credits received from duplicates, so that player’s with specific rewards(skins/emotes/etc) in mind will not be subject of cruel loot rolls.
With these quality of life additions and fixes giving the game a well needed tune-up, it becomes harder and harder to tell what’s next on the docket for Overwatch. Perhaps the long-awaited DoomFist hero addition?
