TL;DR not included
Changes on the horizon
This release is a little different than before. When we sat to plan out this release, we decided that this release will be focused all around making Overwolf more stable and run much smoother. So to do that, we’ve been gathering info on the top things that bother people and bugs that have been seen and set out to fix them. Let’s get started!
I’m happy to update you that we finally understood what causes FPS drops for some of you. We’ve been working hard at trying to recreate this on over 30 different computers with vastly different specs with no luck. However, we now discovered that there is a Microsoft bug for WPF apps with transparent windows (like Overwolf) which leads to FPS drops in games. Continue
Ready for change?
Everyone has their own style, and now you can show it off even on your Overwolf. You’ll now be able to download custom made skins for Overwolf! These skins will completely transform your Overwolf’s looks and sounds! You’ll be able to find them in the Appstore under its very own “Skins” category. Continue
You ready for the next level of our Twitch streamer?
We listened, watched, asked and learned all the things you guys wanted out of our Twitch streaming app and added as many as we could in. We’re taking it to the next level, and we won’t stop here. Wanna know what’s up? Look no further. Continue
This is a quick version release with added support for ‘focus on app open’ for app developers.
We would also like to share an exciting announcement – our partnership with ZAM networks! We’re teaming up to step up your in-game experience! Check out the new ZAM Search app that will help you find whatever you need across all the ZAM websites. You can find the app on the Overwolf Appstore.

Expect a new Overwolf version with super exciting features in the next week or so.
