Overwatch Will Be Getting a 4K Patch on Xbox One X


"Overwatch team is excited with great possibilities Xbox One X opens", reads a Microsoft post.

With the release of the new Xbox console, the Overwatch Xbox One X enhancements aren't going to be the only ones coming to a game.

Blizzard revealed to Windows Central that Overwatch will be getting a 4K patch and the team hope to implement it into the game as soon as possible. We will share more details about our plans for 4K support on Xbox One X later.

Overwatch received PlayStation 4 support before this but strangely the 4K update turned to be only for the User Interface (UI) of the game not game play and the actual in-game resolution stayed at 1080P alnog with updates and improvements in Depth of Field (DoF) and Anisotropic Filtering (AF). One portion of the announcement that is catching people's eye reads, "For this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 26 heroes and 16 maps available for play". This could indicate that Moira is planned to go live either today, November 14, or sometime before the free weekend starts on November 17. It starts at 7pm United Kingdom time on Friday and ends at 7.59am United Kingdom time on the morning of November 21.

Moira is a support hero and she is able help her allies with abilities that can both heal and cause damage.

The Biotic grasp and orb can use her Biotic energy to heal herself and her allies, but can alternatively be used to deal damage to enemies.

Moira's Coalescence Ultimate is interesting in that the beam heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage enemies.

On her official Blizzard page, it says that "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies".
