Overwatch – Echo and Competitive Open Queue Now Live

Double confirmed – Echo is now live on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch! Load additional skill modules and play Overwatch’s latest Damage hero.

In addition to the launch of Echo, we will be launching a new Competitive Mode, Competitive Open Queue in the Arcade. Competitive Open Queue will run for roughly four weeks. This mode will use standard Competitive Play rules, including hero pools and one hero limit, but will have no role restrictions or role queues.
