A new Overwatch update is now live on PS4, Xbox One and PC and unsurprisingly there is now a massive talking point among the changes after Blizzard once again making tweaks to Mercy.
We have the Overwatch version 2.30 patch notes to bring you now if you missed them this week, along with a summary in visual format for those that want to know the key changes.
Mercy is the big target of this update, as Valkyrie will no longer offer a bonus Resurrect charge. Resurrect is now no longer instant either, Valkyrie will last 15 seconds instead of 20 and the Guardian Angel speed boost ability has been decreased by 50%.
You can check out the full patch notes below which also reveals big changes to Junkrat and 4K support has now been added to the Xbox One X version of the game which is great.
