Another month has passed, which means we have yet another set of changes to go over — this time we’re taking a look at the Overwatch patch notes 1.36! Now, Overwatch patches generally aren’t that big, and this one is no exception. We have two small hero changes to discuss, and fortunately, there’s also a lot of bonus content to go over! We have a huge number of new skins, intros, and emotes, as well as even more returning cosmetic items! So if you weren’t able to snag an old event skin you really liked way back when, now’s the time to cash out and attain it.
So without any further ado, let’s take a closer look at the Overwatch patch notes 1.36! First of all, the long-awaited Overwatch Workshop has finally hit live servers!
We’ve already covered the latest undertaking coming from Blizzard and it is, by all means, a spectacular way to infuse life back into the game. If you feel the game became a bit too stale and predictable over the last couple of months, now would be a good moment to jump back in and start playing — especially with the many custom game modes that players all around the world have been coming up with.
If you’re looking to try your hand at the Workshop as well, you can click here in order to get redirected to Blizzard’s official (and surprisingly in-depth) tutorial. Either way, it’s a great place to start if you’re new to the whole shebang.
Overwatch patch notes 1.36 are bringing only two changes, and they’re both basically aimed at the same thing.
Going forward, when Baptiste drops his “Immortality Field” on a moving platform, the field itself will move along with the platform. The same goes for Wrecking Ball’s “Minefield” ability. These aren’t exactly mind-blowing changes, but they’re highly welcomed (and logical) regardless.
Over the last three years, you've escorted endless payloads, captured countless points, and booped oodles of enemies. Now that's something to celebrate!— Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) May 21, 2019

The latest Anniversary event — much like as expected — brings a metric ton of new cosmetic content. We have eleven new skins: Academy D.Va; Gargoyle Winston; Honeydew Mei; Orbital Pharah; Riot Police Brigitte; Toxic Roadhog; Carbon Fiber Pharah; Carbon Fiber Doomfist; Electric Widowmaker; Midnight D.Va; and Oro Sombra. Also, there are three new dance emotes for Wrecking Ball, Baptiste, and Ashe. As if all of that wasn’t enough, all past event items are making a return as well. Click here in order to see the full list.
That’s it for our Overwatch patch notes 1.36 breakdown! If you’re looking to get back into the game, now is as good a time as any seeing how we’re not only getting complete freedom with the Workshop’s release but a ton of cosmetic goodies as well! Also — Overwatch is currently free to play throughout the week (up until the 28th of May).
Finally, if you’re itching for some top-tier competitive play, the third stage of the Overwatch League is just about to begin (June 6th), so you won’t have to wait for long before watching the best teams duke it out in the Blizzard Arena!
