Blizzard’s Overwatch recently received update 2.31.
Overwatch update 2.31 is only for the PS4 version of the game, since update 2.3 caused a couple of major problems. Players started reporting missed models and getting stuck on menus. Not only that, some reported not being able to change characters during the round or even the round after. Blizzard Entertainment’s Lead Software Engineer Bill Warnecke promised the game’s community on Reddit that the team is working to fix these problems as soon as possible, and update 2.31 was born. Here is update 2.30’s patch notes:
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Pre-purchase Goodies

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.

- Concussion Mine
- Now will deal less damage to targets farther away from the explosion’s center
Developer Comments: Junkrat has been enjoying the flexibility his double-charge Concussion Mine provides, but it has become a bit too easy to throw out huge bursts of damage in a large area. With this change he can still dish out similar damage but he must now be more accurate with his tosses.
- No longer makes Resurrect instant
- No longer grants a bonus Resurrect charge
- The speed bonus Guardian Angel receives when activating Valkyrie has been decreased by 50%
- Duration reduced from 20 seconds to 15 seconds
Developer Comments: 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. Additionally, we’re toning back the amount of mobility Valkyrie provides through Guardian Angel and reducing its duration to overall reduce the power of this ability.
- Fixed a bug that prevented D.Va’s face and hair textures from loading when her Black Cat skin was equipped
