Overwatch is getting a new highlight feature

Overwatch is getting a new highlight feature”

What do you think of the changes to the Overwatch loot boxes and the highlight system?

There's not date yet for when these new changes will come to the game. It doesn't seem that way, with Kaplan saying that Blizzard is going to boost the number of credits found in loot boxes, hopefully making up the difference.

Teased back in December by Blizzard, who at the time said it it was a "feature we very much want", we now finally have a look at a new highlight export feature that comes as part of the recent PTR update 1.13. Players will be able to record their own highlight reels or retrieve captures done by Overwatch itself. But to compensate for the decrease of duplicates, Blizzard will at the same time increase the overall amount of credits players receive.

Special game content for Twitch Prime subscribers is also set to be offered to fans, like the aforementioned Overwatch Golden Loot Box.

Meanwhile, Blizzard Entertainment announced the Horizon Lunar Colony map last month, and now, the Patch 1.12.0.2 made the map available for all "Overwatch" enthusiasts. Everybody in the PTR will get five loot boxes to test out the new drop rates right away. Blizzard is taking a two-pronged approach with the loot boxes, with the aim of solving the two key components to Overwatch loot boxes feeling rather unsatisfactory.

As for the highlights feature, Overwatch will save your top five highlights for 24 hours, even if you log out of the game or power off your system. This includes the ability for players to capture 12 seconds of their own highlights using a single button press. The changes will work across Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. After a round ends that clip will be saved in your Highlight Screen under Recently Captured. Continuing on to Blizzard's little Overwatch museum, Chung tries out a Bastion voice simulator before meeting the game's creators. Of course, it will be a while before the PTR tests are complete but I am still glad to hear they are working on this. As always, if you have any thoughts or opinions, feel free to sound them off in the comments section below!
