Overwatch June 22 update: Crossplay, Parity Adjustment, and more

Overwatch is officially releasing crossplay on all platforms as well as balance changes to go alongside it.
Overwatch June 22 update: Crossplay, Parity Adjustment, and more
Overwatch fans had to wait a long time for it, but crossplay is finally here, merging all console and PC users into one player pool at least for Quickplay, as Competitive will only feature cross-console play.

As a result of crossplay implementation, Blizzard has decided to create balance changes dubbed "Parity Adjustments," which were slight tweaks between the PC and console versions of the game to help console players deal with issues mouse and keyboard users could get rid of more effectively.

On top of this, the new Ashe's Deadlock Challenges is live, giving fans the chance to earn sprays, icons, and even a Legendary skin for the DPS hero.
