The latest update that landed for the Overwatch PTR over on PC is a tweak that allows spectators the luxury of being able to see all the health bars of every player in the game.

It's a move designed to deliver greater visibility to the audience, hopefully one that will help people get more excited about the action that they're seeing unfold in front of their eyes.

Overwatch has already proven popular and is growing as an esport, but one thing that it needs is greater clarity for those watching from the sidelines. If this is the first of several tweaks and changes designed to make the game more audience-friendly, then its prospects as a competitive title can only be enhanced.
