Jeff Kaplan gave fans more information on the story, "Stone by Stone," written by Christie Golden, who has worked on Warcraft stories in the past.

This story tells of a mishap that happens in India that makes damage to a temple. The monk Zenyatta works with Symmetra to do right by the temple and by the town around it.

An event is going to celebrate this new story called Symmetra's Restoration where players must get nine wins to get a new skin. Each three wins there are different rewards along the way. Also by watching partnered streamers players will be able to get rewards there as well.

Jeff Kaplan Details Overwatch Priority Pass and More in Developer Update

Coming soon there will be Priority Pass where if you are playing an impacted role, you will get a faster queue time for that role. Earning this pass is made by entering a flex queue by matchmaking you into a needed role. If you win the game in flex queue, you will earn even more Priority Passes than if you lose. You can have up to 40 Priority Passes. The goal is to speed up queue times for everyone in the game.

This is made so that players will be rewarded for generous behavior.

Another upgrade is to the replay viewer. The team has added new options for viewing and spectating replays such as controlling the camera, controlling interface, and changing outlines around characters and nameplates or health bars.
