A few days ago, Blizzard disabled a couple of Legendary skins in “Overwatch.” The Oni Genji and Winged Victory Mercy skins are two of the most favorite skins in the game. However, after the patch 1.15 went live on the game servers, several players equipped with these skins noticed an issue that hampers their gameplay. The developer immediately disabled the skins as a temporary fix. Last night, Blizzard rolled out a new patch that resolved the issue. PC players can now equip their in-game characters with these skins without experiencing the previous issue.

Skins are back

A new patch for “Overwatch” went live on September 22 for its PC version. On September 20, several players were saddened when the game developer disabled the Oni Genji and Winged Victory Mercy skins. It was observed that players equipped with these skins experienced each of the hero’s Ultimate voice lines not functioning properly.

Although the bug may appear petty, it is important to have those Ultimate voice lines functioning properly especially when in a match. It will give the players using the bugged characters undue advantages over their opponents. Without the Ultimate voice lines, the opponent will not get notified that the players are already using their character’s Ultimate.

The fix is just available for the game’s PC version for now. Blizzard has not yet provided the timeline for the release of the patch on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the first-person shooter title. Console players are hoping that it would come soon.

Maps removed

While the latest PC Patch brings back the fan-favorite skins, it removes four maps from the game’s Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch map rotation.

Players will not be able to access the maps such as Hanamura, Horizon Lunar Colony, Temple of Anubis, and Volskaya Industries in the modes for the meantime. However, these maps are still available in the Custom Games.

The latest move was confirmed by community manager Josh Engen in the official forum of the first-person shooter title.

As of press time, Blizzard has not offered any timeline as to when these maps will be available in the Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch map rotation.

Several adjustments

In addition to bringing back the Oni Genji and Winged Victory Mercy skins, Blizzard has made several adjustments to foster balance and improvements. This includes fixing Mercy’s Resurrect while it applies credit to the on-fire meter of the game. The patch notes for the latest update in the PC version of “Overwatch” also reveals several bug fixes.
