Overwatch PTR Patch Notes – January 14, 2021

General Updates

Feature Update: Replay Viewer Fine-Grained Playback Controls
  • We've introduced a new option that allows you to toggle between two different playback controls, the default playback controls and the "fine-grained" playback controls.
  • These "fine-grained" controls will allow you to increase and decrease the replay playback speed in smaller increments than 0.25x, from 0.10x to 1.00x. You can also hold your "Move Slow" binding while increasing or decreasing speeds to change the playback speed acceleration. This can help you capture cool slow-motion shots and more!
General
  • Added a "New" Ownership Filter to the Player Icon tab in the career profile
  • Reorganized the layout of the escape menu while you are in a custom game
  • Adjusted sound for boosted hit indicators to increase clarity
