New Hybrid Map: Blizzard World

– An amusement park celebrating the universes of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo, Blizzard World is a brand-new hybrid Assault/Escort map. Charge the gates of Stormwind, sneak through the Nexus Experience, and guide the payload through areas filled with high ground, flanking routes, and environmental hazards. Grab some Blizzard-inspired snacks at the concession stand along the way!



– An option to “Remove All A.I.” in the custom game lobby can be accessed by Right Click > Remove All Bots



– Fixed an issue that caused the arcade card for Limited Duel and Mystery Duel to not list all currently disabled characters

– Fixed an issue that prevented certain sound effects from playing when navigating the Options menu with a controller


– Fixed a visual bug that caused Ana’s Biotic Rifle ammo clip to detach when her Captain Amari skin was equipped

– Fixed a bug that caused Doomfist’s Seismic Slam to create performance drops when repeatedly used with no cooldown

– Fixed a bug that prevented Mei’s Cryo-freeze from clearing the healing debuff caused by Ana’s Biotic Grenade

– Fixed a visual bug with Moira’s Biotic Orb that sometimes caused Biotic Grasp’s healing spray effects to display instead

– Fixed a bug that prevented Moira from being able to pass through enemies when using Fade

– Fixed a bug that caused Moira’s eyelashes to detach from her face during her Heroic highlight intro

– Fixed a visual issue with Moira’s Oasis skin that caused her knees to clip through her knee guards while crouched

– Fixed an issue that prevented highlights captured by Zenyatta players from recording correctly when the Cultist skin was equipped
