All Characters in Overwatch are Seeing Changes to Their Movement


All Characters in Overwatch are Seeing Changes to Their Movement

Game director Jeff Kaplan has said that movement changes are coming to Overwatch which will affect every hero in the game.

Speaking on the forums, Kaplan said the changes have come to PTR and were put in place to fix a couple heroes, but in the end, it will affect everyone. The changes don’t seem massive, but one of the key things that will be noticeable is both how inclines and air control work. He said:

Specifically, movement on the ground is much more consistent. Going up/down inclines will no longer affect the Hero’s speed. Previously, inclines could either make you move slightly faster or slightly slower, depending on the circumstances. Inclines will also no longer cause a small amount of strafing movement when moving diagonally on them. A side effect of these changes is characters will now have slightly better air control. For example, Winston previously was not able to easily make small adjustments to his flight path during his Jump Pack leap, but now he should be able to do that, and it is also noticeable on many of the other Heroes that are often in the air.

Without seeing these changes in place, it’s hard to know how impactful they are going to be. As someone who likes to get their Winston on in Overwatch though, the idea of more air control sounds a-okay to me.
