Overwatch’s much anticipated competitive mode has finally come to PC, and will be coming to consoles later on. Competitive mode is a tier-based system aimed at giving more serious players a chance to duke it out for higher stakes.
“We know this isn’t an ideal way to deliver new content, so we’re going to continue to refine our patching processes over the next few months in an effort to sync up our release dates across platforms as closely possible,” wrote a community manager on Battle.net. “Although our Battle.net client will always allow us to be more agile on PC, we hope to reach a point where we can release major updates on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 simultaneously.”
The console version of the game is expected to receive the patch in the coming weeks. The first season of competitive play will be shorter than average, running for just two months.
