On Jan 30th, new Hero balance updates and World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth pre-purchase goodies were added to Overwatch PC, PS4, and XBOX.

An Overwatch update now on the game's live server drastically alters Mercy's ultimate, Valkyrie, and nerfs Junkrat's Concussive Mine ability.

"Mercy's recent Resurrect changes have helped in allowing enemies to have more counter play in dealing with her, but she was able to use Resurrect through Valkyrie enough to largely mitigate the impact of the previous changes". Valkyrie now lasts 15 seconds instead of 20, and Mercy's Guardian Angel ability has had its effectiveness nerfed by 50%.

On the other hand, Blizzard also reduced the damage that the Junkrat mine causes to players who are far from the explosion.

Hot on the heels of its latest map release, Overwatch has picked up another patch with one big addition for anyone playing on Microsoft's latest console: Xbox One X support. And if you're new to Overwatch, you can jump into the hero-shooter action now for $59.99 - though it's frequently on sale for less than that. Check out the full patch notes below.

The speed bonus Guardian Angel receives when activating Valkyrie has been decreased by 50%.

Along with the balance updates, goodies from the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Digital Deluxe pre-purchase have been added.

"Mercy's recent Resurrect changes have helped in allowing enemies to have more counter play in dealing with her, but she was able to use Resurrect through Valkyrie enough to largely mitigate the impact of the previous changes". Show your faction pride on the battlefields of tomorrow with emotes for Tracer; Horde- and Alliance-themed voice lines for Torbjörn; Anduin, Jaina, Sylvanas, and Saurfang sprays; and Kul Tiras and Zandalar player icons. Junkrat mains will now have to be more precise with their attacks and more strategic with their Concussion Mine throws.
