‘Overwatch’ Patch Notes: Havana Map Goes Live, All-Star Skins Available

The latest Overwatch patch has been released, bringing the brand new Havana map from the PTR into the main game. It’s a fairly small patch, with no changes to heroes or maps. The small bugs and issues that are currently being worked out on the PTR for Junkrat, Doomfist and Wrecking Ball are still in development or else they’d be here. There are also two new skins available for the All-Star event available: 2019 Atlantic All-Star Mercy and 2019 Pacific All-Star Lúcio.

How To Get 2019 Overwatch All-Star Skins

The Mercy and Lucio skins are available now until May 22 and can be purchased with Overwatch League Tokens. Each skin will cost 200 OWL Tokens, which can be earned by watching Overwatch League matches (three for every match you watch) or bought for $9.99. It seems like last year’s may not be available for purchase, so make sure you get this pair if you really want them now.

Overwatch May 7 Patch Notes

New Map: Havana

Havana, a vibrant, historic port city where the winds of change blow strong, is home to Overwatch’s newest Escort map!

Begin your trip at the Taller de Sebastián, where the classic cars that line Havana’s bustling streets stop for refueling and repair. Escort a truck of rum barrels on the sun-drenched cobblestone roads, fighting off those who try to stop you. As you make your way, duck into a colorful building to escape enemy fire and savor the impressive flavors of Havana at La Cocina de Miranda or Café del Sol. Battle your opponents through the alleys until you reach the Don Rumbotico rum distillery, a once little-known local treasure that has recently earned international acclaim. Finally, guide the jalopy through the distillery to its destination at the Havana Sea Fort, a historical landmark recently purchased by an anonymous financial group and closed to the public.

Havana is a nice map but this won’t be enough to impact the meta. Numbani has remained offline and unavailable for the past few months, meaning Havana will just replace its spot. Havana does have an interesting route for your Payload to take, having multiple sharp turns and chokepoints to contest.
