If you’ve played a single Overwatch game with Mercy as your support hero, you’ve heard her rallying shout at least once – “Heroes never die!” That serves as both the title and the central theme behind a new fan-made film pitting Mercy against Widowmaker and exploring the good doctor’s past and motivation. It’s only a short film, but the production values are great for a fan film, and it’s well worth watching just below.
Oh, you don’t want to pay attention to dedicated fan productions, you just want to worry about actual balance changes? Fine, go over the changes from the game’s latest test patch. Soldier: 76 is getting his damage tuned down and Reinhardt’s Earthshatter will be a bit more restricted vertically; meanwhile, Genji and Hanzo can do damage faster after climbing walls and Orisa can use her protective barrier more often. There are your mechanical changes.
Seriously, a lot of effort went into that fan film. You should watch that.
