The Public Test Region for Overwatch has received a new update packed with hero changes.

Recently Blizzard game designer Geoff Goodman indicated that the Public Test Region would begin seeing more extreme shifts when updated?ones that were “unlikely to make it through PTR unchanged.” Now we know exactly what he meant, as some aspects adjusted in the PTR include a doubling of D.Va’s health and Torbjörn now automatically generating scrap.
