Hi Everyone,

Thank you for 1 year of Workshop! The passion you creators have shown in the past year has been amazing, and we are constantly blown away by the amazing modes coming out every day.

And none of this would have been possible without you guys. We’re super excited to bring you more and more updates in the future!

Overwatch concept artist Qiu Fang has a knack for envisioning rugged, outdoorsy characters. Four years ago, when he was an art student with aspirations of becoming a character concept artist, Fang began a personal project depicting a ragtag group of nomadic hunters.

Loot Box Opening Glitch (PC)

Comment
JoshNash-1223 on Forums - Thread - Direct

We are aware of an issue causing the camera to zoom in when opening an Anniversary Loot Box, making it difficult to see what items were received.
