The Overwatch Havana patch is here and it adds the newest Escort map to the game along with a few changes that have been in testing on the PTR. Furthermore, the Overwatch All-Stars skins for Mercy and Lúcio are now available for players to purchase!
Check out the trailer for the new Havana map to see what you can play in the game right now!
Overwatch Havana Patch - Havana Now AvailableHavana was first brought to the Public Test Realm in the middle of April. It spent a few weeks in testing and it's now available for players to enjoy in the game!
This Escort-style map has players moving a payload through three distinct sections of the map. Fight your way through the streets of Havana until you make it to the midway point at the Don Rumbotico rum distillery. Survive the close-quarters battles of this building and you'll get some fresh ocean air on your way to the Havana Sea Fort!
While this is the debut of the map for regular play, Havana had previously been used for this year's Overwatch Archives event. The new PVE mission for the year saw players tracking down Talon's money man Maximillian in what amounted to a somewhat less impressive mission as compared to previous years.
Overwatch All-Stars Skins - Lúcio and Mercy Rep League DivisionsOne of the other big additions in the Overwatch Havana patch is the addition of the Lúcio and Mercy Overwatch All-Stars Skins. These skins celebrate the Atlantic and Pacific divisions of the Overwatch League and are here for players to purchase as we hit the midway point of the season.
Previously, the Overwatch All-Stars skins were available after the end of the season as that's when the All-Stars games took place. However, the All-Stars games have been moved to the midway point of Overwatch League Season 2. The Overwatch All-Stars skins are available for purchase in-game at a price of 200 League Tokens each, a price that comes out to roughly $9.99 or your regional equivalent.
Overwatch Havana Patch - Other ChangesOf course, there's a little more to this patch than the Overwatch All-Stars skins and the addition of Havana! Here are the other changes that are now live in the game:
- Fixed text errors on Taller de Sebastián and several posters
- Fixed a bug where players would slide along the bottom of the pillars and the wall corners on the second floor of La Euforia
- Fixed an issue where players could become stuck on the Yucca plants
- An issue in the previous patch made it much more unlikely that Numbani would appear in standard play. This issue has now been resolved.
That's it for this new patch! You can play Havana right now in Overwatch in regular play or in its own dedicated Arcade Mode. You'll have just a few short weeks to enjoy the game normally before we get to the Overwatch Anniversary event!
