Blizzard has rolled out the Overwatch 2 Season 11 update

Nerfing Roadhog and bringing multiple hero changes. While no new hero is introduced this season, fans can enjoy a new Battle Pass and explore the Runasapi map. Changes to Colosseo and various hero updates, particularly for Roadhog and Cassidy, are also included.

The Colosseo map now lacks glass barriers, providing players with more battle flexibility. Other maps remain unchanged, but significant hero adjustments have been made. Roadhog's health and damage reduction from his Take a Breather ability are reduced, impacting his survivability.
