When Overwatch says that it has released its new game browser with its latest patch, that may sound like the most dull patch note in the galaxy. But what those milquetoast words hide is that this patch actually is putting revolutionary power into the hands of players. Shazam!
In a nutshell, the game browser allows players to create and search for custom games with all sorts of crazy rulesets. “Think of it like a playground,” Blizzard said. “The game browser is an extension of Overwatch’s custom game mode that gives you the power to create your own games, change the rules, and make your creations accessible to a much wider range of players. It also gives fellow players the tools to find your games and participate.”
The studio said that additional features and options for the browser are also in the works, and of course the patch also kicked off Competitive Play Season 4. Check out some of the possibilities with the new game browser in the following video!
