Earlier this week, Blizzard announced that they would be releasing a patch for the PC version of Overwatch that would include the Competitive Play feature. As for consoles, Blizzard stated that console gamers could expect Competitive Play to arriving in the coming weeks, but it seems that Xbox One gamers did not even have to wait that long.
In a recent patch released by Blizzard, it seems that Competitive Play for the Xbox One has arrived much earlier than anyone had anticipated, but we guess that’s actually a good thing as we’re sure that console gamers would rather not wait around while PC gamers got all the competitive fun ahead of them.
Unfortunately there was no announcement regarding the PS4 yet, but hopefully the patch for the PS4 won’t be too far behind. Competitive Play on the Xbox One will be more or less similar to the PC version and will only open up for gamers when they hit level 25. Once they do, the experience should be the same across the board.
The patch also introduces some gameplay changes, which once again is similar to what PC gamers have already received earlier this week, except for the Xbox One. The patch notes can be found on the Battle.net forums for those who are interested in seeing what changes Blizzard has made.
