Earlier this month, Blizzard announced a number of changes to Overwatch’s player-to-player interaction model in hopes of encouraging a better community through positive reinforcement. These additions included the ability to group play with preset roles you want in your group, as well as the ability to endorse players who did a particularly good job and promoted a healthy interaction.
Blizzard has now finally gone live with these changes, announced today via Twitter.

The new update also includes Symmetra’s rework, which has been testing on the PTR server for a number of weeks, as well as a rework of the Lunar Horizon Colony map.
This feature patch comes among some teasing for new Overwatch content, which is still mysterious outside of knowing it involves something rolling through. The new feature patch is live on all platforms for the game.
