Overwatch has been optimized for Xbox Series X|S, players can now select from various different performances and graphics settings.

A new resolution mode allows fans to play the team-based FPS in 4K at 60 frames-per-second on Xbox Series X, and at 1440p and 60 frames-per-second on Series S. Players can also select a framerate mode that reduces the resolution of the game but supports 120 frames-per-second.

Here is the official description via Blizzard:

  • “Resolution” : This mode prefers higher-resolution output at the cost of some image-quality (Series X: 4K @ 60Hz, Series S: 1440p @ 60Hz)
  • “Balanced” : This mode prefers image-quality at the cost of resolution (Series X: 1440p @ 60Hz, Series S: 1080p @ 60Hz)
  • “Framerate” : This mode prefers higher frame-rate at 120 frames-per-second at the cost of both image-quality and resolution (Series X: 1440p @ 120Hz, Series S: 1080p @ 120Hz)
  • NOTE: Not you must have a TV that supports 120Hz or VRR (Variable-Refresh-Rate) to fully take advantage of the “Framerate” mode.

There is no word on whether the update will be applicable for the PlayStation 5 version of the game.

Blizzard also announced that fans can now unlock a brand new Epic skin for Hogwild by completing the limited-time PachiMarchi challenge.

The PachiMarchi challenge lets players unlock a new player icon by winning three games, as well as a Junkrat emote by winning six games.

PachiMarchi, a celebration of the lovable, huggable, and oh-so-squeakable half-onion, half-octopus, is here! Now through March 22, win games to earn delightful new rewards and become the ultimate pachimari enthusiast—second only to Roadhog, of course. Get hooked on a slew of pachi-swag, including a Junkrat emote, pachimar-ized sprays of Overwatch heroes, and the Pachimari Roadhog skin!
The Overwatch team also announced Workshop Extensions, a system that allows users to enable certain enhancements, such as access to new effects and increasing the number of dummy bots. These enhancements can be enabled using Extension Points, which are earned by either disabling player slots, disabling all non-Workshop maps, or a combination of both.
