The Overwatch 2.64 update patch notes (or the Overwatch 1.35 update patch notes if you’re on PC) aren’t incredibly long but they do bring a few new items. For one, it finally pushes the recently announced Havana map out to the live servers. It also brings with it a few new skins that you won’t be able to get in loot boxes. This update is currently out on PC and PS4 but the Xbox One version is still being worked on. There are also no balance updates in this update.
Overwatch 2.64 Update Patch Notes | New Havana map
This update brings Havana, the Cuban map from the recent Storm Rising event. It was announced last month but only had a vague release window. However, given Blizzard’s patterns of putting out maps, we were right in that it would come this week.
This map is an Escort map, which means that one team has to escort a payload to the end of the map while fending off the defending team. Junkertown, Rialto, and Dorado are examples of Escort maps already in the game. Here’s how Blizzard described the new map in the patch notes:
“Begin your trip at the Taller de Sebastián, where the classic cars that line Havana’s bustling streets stop for refueling and repair. Escort a truck of rum barrels on the sun-drenched cobblestone roads, fighting off those who try to stop you. As you make your way, duck into a colorful building to escape enemy fire and savor the impressive flavors of Havana at La Cocina de Miranda or Café del Sol. Battle your opponents through the alleys until you reach the Don Rumbotico rum distillery, a once little-known local treasure that has recently earned international acclaim. Finally, guide the jalopy through the distillery to its destination at the Havana Sea Fort, a historical landmark recently purchased by an anonymous financial group and closed to the public.”
Overwatch 2.64 Update Patch Notes | New All-Star skins
Similar to last year, Blizzard has added two new All-Star skins to the game that are available for 200 League Tokens, which players can buy with real money or earn by watching the Overwatch League. The skins this year are Atlantic All-Star Mercy and 2019 Pacific All-Star Lúcio. Be warned as these will only be available from May 7 to May 22.
This is similar to the Tracer and Genji skins from last year. However, those skins are not on sale again this year.
