By Alan Ng - Sep 13, 2016

Update September 13: Blizzard has just launched the new Overwatch 1.09 update on PS4 already so soon after 1.08 which have taken many players by surprise. Skip to the bottom of this article for the Overwatch 1.09 patch notes!

Original article: Overwatch is the new fun shooter game from Blizzard that everyone is playing right now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. As expected, there has been a huge day one update but now we want to know your most requested feature for the next Overwatch update, which should be the Overwatch 1.08 update on PS4 and Xbox One.

Previous versions: Overwatch version 1.08 went live on September 2 in Europe and US, adding the Eichenwalde map to the game and more importantly Competitive Play Season 2.

What do you want to see changed or added for Overwatch patch 1.09? Unfortunately Blizzard has not set up a standalone website for users to check patch notes when live, but we’ll do our best to keep you updated here – they usually appear on the forums such as the link above but not instantly when patches drop.


With over millions of players from the beta, the game has already fulfilled its potential to be one of the best games of 2016 especially with Blizzard updating frequently with support.

We’ll update this page when we have official news of the next Overwatch update. In the meantime, give us your experience of the game so far below and how you would improve it moving forward by participating in our Overwatch discussion section below.

  • jakdripr

    The McCree and Widow nerfs are in this patch as well. No more dying to one button as Zarya vs a McCree. Funny though, the biggest part of the Widow nerf is probably not going to affect console players since we were all garbage with her anyway and barely anyone quick scoped.

  • jakdripr

    So are we just not going to get the McCree and Widow nerf on consoles? I was certain it’d be included in the competitive patch.
