Blizzard has released a new update for Overwatch that fixes a few bugs ahead of the start of the Summer Games event next week.

The update fixes bugs that prevented the party leader from entering the Training Menu, caused crashes when players were attempting to purchase loot boxes, and prevented Reinhardt’s Charge from knocking back enemies. Read the full patch notes below:

General

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the party leader from entering the Training Menu
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally caused crashes when players were attempting to purchase loot boxes

Heroes

  • Fixed several bugs causing Doomfist skins to render incorrectly
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally prevented Reinhardt’s Charge from knocking back enemies

Earlier this week, Blizzard confirmed that the Summer Games event will return to Overwatch next week on August 8th. The event will include new legendary skins for Junkrat and Mercy along with new items that will make Widowmaker and McCree fans very happy. As well as these new items, all of last year’s items will be available to purchase for credits at a discounted price.

Finally, Lúcioball will return as part of the event with a new mode called Copa Lúcioball, a competitive version of Lúcioball. Players who complete 10 placement matches will get a special spray, while players who reach the top 500 will get a second spray.
