It's not clear as yet when that patch will be released fully.

Beyond the Reveal Ceremony on 23 August, Blizzard will be hosting a series of events - from cosplay to quizzes to contests and dancing - throughout the week on its dedicated Blizzard Gamescom website, so make sure you stay tuned for the latest Blizzard news from Thursday 24 August - Friday 25 August 2017. The map preview will go live on August 21, while the animated short will become available when GamesCom opens on August 23.

Fans who won't be making their way to Cologne next week can tune into Blizzard's daily livestreams and social media channels to follow along from home.

"Overwatch" has a sufficient number of maps in the game, which is regularly updated with content. Blizzard revealed Widowmaker's namesake in the game dubbed as the Chateau Guillard. The event takes place from August 22-26, and we'll be there to put on our best show yet.
