New Overwatch Patch Now Live On PS4 And Xbox One, Adds Ana To The Roster

A new Overwatch patch is live on PS4 and Xbox One, and one of its biggest additions is the new sniper support hero: Ana.

As previously announced, Ana is an aging badass - and mother of Pharah - who has seen her fair share of battles. She helps her teammates from afar with some powerful weapons, such as her biotic rifle and biotic grenade both can heal allies and attack foes.  Ana's ultimate ability is sure to be a saving grace as well, as her nano boost grants one of her teammates faster movement, increased damage, and resistance to enemy attacks.

In addition to Ana, the patch fixes some bugs, makes it so competitive play players can only select one of each hero per team, and adds a bevy of hero balance updates. For instance, D.Va's self-destruct option is more powerful and no longer can damage the D.Va herself. For a list of what's changing with your hero and everything in the patch, check here

Update: If you were experiencing issues with Ana on Xbox One or with Mei's Ice Wall on both consoles, you should be seeing improvement. All is now functioning as intended and Ana is fully playable on both console platforms.
