While playing Overwatch, there is nothing worse than opening a Loot Box only to find that legendary you got was either a pitiful amount of credits or a duplicate of what you already had. Well, now that is about to change according to a new Developer Update out of Blizzard.which claims that the number of Loot Box duplicates is set to be significantly reduced.
To compensate for the lack of potential credits you get from fewer duplicates, Blizzard also said they will be increasing the number of credits you get in other areas.
As well as changes in the rewards system, Jeff Kaplan talks about a new Highlights system which will allow you to save the top five highlights for 24 hours instead of being deleted when the game is closed. A new feature will also allow you to bind keys to capture moments manually and works similar to the Windows 10 and Xbox One’s Record That feature. Up to 32 highlights can be saved at a time, which you can then choose to save as video files.
There is no word on being able to export the highlights directly to YouTube but you will be able to export them as video files which you could upload yourself. The best part, if your machine isn’t powerful enough to play the game in 4K 60fps you can still capture the footage into a video file at higher resolutions if you play on PC.
