Blizzard Entertainment recently announced another major achievement for “Overwatch.” The team-based FPS video game has reached 35 million registered players around the world. According to a report by GameSpot, the developer revealed the good news via Twitter post. The developer did not specify, but it seems like the figure covers all players from Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

More players to come before the year ends

The growth seems to be unstoppable after the number of players in “Overwatch” Beta version hit 10 million.

The game had 25 million players in March, and 30 million in April. Blizzard Entertainment is expecting more new players this coming holiday season. This is an impressive achievement especially for a paid game like “Overwatch.”

The Halloween Terror event lured players

The on-going in-game event also helped the developer to reach its new milestone. The “Overwatch” Halloween Terror event runs until November 2, and it features new skins that can be acquired from Loot Boxes or by buying through the in-game shop. The event also features a multiplayer Horde-style mode called “Junkenstein's Revenge” where players can team up and battle against endless waves of enemies. Players who want a bit more challenge will enjoy “Junkenstein’s Revenge: Endless Night” mode. In this mode, the waves of enemies are much tougher.

Updates on Overwatch PTR

In other “Overwatch” news, Blizzard Entertainment made new adjustments to Mercy [VIDEO] on the game’s Public Test Realm. The developer added a new Resurrect charge and an Unlock Boost for Mercy’s Guardian Angel ability. In order for Mercy to Resurrect two allies in the official game, she has to Resurrect one ally first, then activate the Ultimate ability Valkyrie, and then Resurrect another ally after the cooldown reset. Mercy does not have to do all of that with the new Resurrect charge.

Changes on Mercy

The Unlock Boost option for Mercy’s Guardian Angel ability will allow her to fly towards an ally by simply targeting it. Players should take note that the Guardian Angel ability cooldown will not reset if the Resurrect ability has been used, which means that Mercy cannot use the Unlock Boost to dash in and out of a sticky situation. The developer purposely made this so that Mercy’s opponents can attack her if she dashes in the frontlines to save an ally.

Changes on Lucio

The developer also made a few changes to the support hero Lucio on the “Overwatch” Public Test Realm. Lucio’s changes were more like a bug fix. Lucio’s super-boost bug was removed after the developer noticed several players using the super-boost after wall-jumping. Blizzard Entertainment did not announce when the changes on Lucio and Mercy will go live. But PTR players are expecting it in a few weeks.
