What's up, everyone? This is Jeff from the Overwatch team. We're here with an awesome update. This one's going to be a bit of surprise for you all, because we have a brand-new feature coming to Overwatch, and one that's really exciting to us. So, the feature is called the Workshop. And the Workshop is coming to the game browser. Now, I know there's immediately a ton of questions about "What is the Workshop?" The Workshop is a scripting mode that will allow you to make custom game modes within the custom game browser, but also allow you to do really cool things. For example, you could even prototype your own Overwatch hero using this system. To give you a little bit of history about how we came up with this idea, we have 2 amazing programmers, one by the name of Dan and one by the name of Keith. We gave them some free time to work on whatever they wanted. And these 2 programmers were really familiar with working with our scripting system that we use to make the game. And they said, it would be super-cool if we gave the players some of the power that we have as programmers and as game developers to make whatever they could come up with, wherever their imaginations would take them.
