Acknowledging players who do well in Overwatch is a big part of what keeps players in the game, and to that end the latest developer update reveals that more tools will arrive to facilitate doing just that. The new endorsements feature will allow you to commend players on either team who display behaviors that you think deserve acknowledgement, like good sportsmanship and solid teamwork.
Players will also have the option of using the new Looking for Group feature to assemble a team composed of just the people you need. That’s on top of the upcoming Symmetra rework (which should go live with the next patch) and a reorganization of Attack and Defense heroes into a single “Damage” category. Check out the full video just below for a rundown of the social features (and other changes) coming to the game in the near future.
