The Overwatch Archives event included a trailer video which released the first glimpses of the new Havana map and Talon council member Maximilien.

Players on the Xbox One and PC purchased an S4-exclusive Wavesplitter in the 45-minute window between the patch going live and Bungie resetting Xur for the week. Bungie’s response is to explain that they’re issuing an update that prevents players who got the Wavesplitter from actually equipping it.

After months of rumors and accidental appearances of what looked like respawn-enabling vehicles in replay mode, Epic Games has finally revealed the new Reboot Vans in its latest Dev Update. When playing in a squad, downed teammates will drop a Reboot Card that you should snatch up ASAP. Once you’ve got their card, head on over to one of the many Reboot Vans located near points of interest to get the respawn process started. You’ll need to channel at the van for a short duration in order to trigger the respawn – and once you do, its car alarm will blare out and a giant beam will shoot into the sky for all to see.
