Overwatch has teamed up with content creators to build the second Creator Experimental Card! This daring and wild experimental patch will feature updates, changes, and additions never seen in Overwatch before. We have given our creators complete freedom to turn the Experimental game mode into their sandbox and imagine their own versions of Overwatch. No hero will be left unchanged, and you may find some of their updates fresh and new... yet strangely familiar.  

An unexpected, but not unwelcome, development.  

Our group of content creators for this experimental card is as interesting and unique as their proposed changes. They include an incredibly diverse group of creators featuring professional Overwatch players, casters, and streamers. If you aren’t familiar with them, make sure to check out their channels and work! Here’s the lineup for the second-ever Creator Experimental Card:  




Following this Creator Experimental Card will be Experimental Cup Tournament 2 on February 18-20, and the stakes have never been higher.

The changes in the Creator Experimental Card are exhilarating, witty, and unconventional. This is something fun for both the community and our team, but it’s not meant to be considered as a PTR. However, the stakes are still high with the upcoming Experimental Cup Series!
