These changes are all on the PTR Version only at the moment but will probably move to the main game within a week or two.

BIG CHANGES TO D.VA AND MERCY.

D.Va:
  • Micro Missiles (New Ability)
    • D.Va fires a barrage of small rockets that detonate on impact, dealing damage in a limited radius around each explosion. These can be fired while D.Va is using any other ability or firing her Fusion Cannons
  • Defense Matrix
    • Defense Matrix's resource meter will now deplete twice as quickly
  • Boosters
    • Fusion Cannons can now be fired while flying
Mercy:
  • Resurrect (formerly Mercy’s Ultimate ability)
    • Ability now targets a single player, instead of every player within a radius
    • Radius reduced to 5 meters
    • Ability cooldown is 30 seconds
    • Mercy is no longer granted invulnerability while Resurrect is active
  • Valkyrie (New Ultimate Ability)
    • Valkyrie unleashes the full power of Mercy’s Valkyrie Suit, enhancing her weapons and abilities for 20 seconds:
      • Caduceus Staff: Mercy’s healing and damage boost beams now affect all allies near the targeted teammate, and the staff’s effective range has been extended
      • Caduceus Blaster: Granted infinite ammo, while simultaneously increasing damage and fire rate
      • Guardian Angel: Increased range and movement speed
      • Resurrect: Cooldown is instantly reset when Valkyrie is activated and reduced to 10s after the initial cast
      • Hover: Mercy gains the ability to fly freely, at increased movement speed
      • Regeneration (Passive): No longer interrupted when Mercy takes damage
Reinhardt:
  • Holding primary fire while your shield is active now allows you to rotate the camera
Other Notable Changes:
  • The skull icons that indicate where teammates were killed throughout the map have been replaced with Hero Portrait icons
  • Players will no longer see the Assemble Your Team screen at the beginning of a game when Respawn as a Random Hero is enabled.
  • Players who purposefully kill themselves in a game where Respawn as a Random Hero is enabled, will no longer respawn as a new hero. However, their Ultimate ability will reset and any equipment that’s been placed (i.e. Torbjörn’s turret) will despawn.
  • In games where Respawn as a Random Hero is enabled, players will no longer receive the same hero two consecutive times, unless Custom Game settings have restricted the hero pool to a single hero

I like the changes to D.Va a bit. Defense Matrix should now only be used for big abilities rather than normal fire.

The Mercy change with resurrect is pretty good. The only problem I have is that Mercy's new ult might make her impossible to kill. (we'll have to see though)

I actually like that about some games. I have csgo for consistency, and overwatch for new gameplay. If overwatch was the same all the time it would get boring. Thats why I haven't been playing it recently because it's just the same game every match. same maps, same meta. gets boring.

i dont know if people know this but in the ptr, and from a video, you can fire the missles with your defense matrix up...

Also, im just gonna play overwatch as a widowmaker main if this change happens... and in the community some people say that they like the mercy change cause now "Mercy mains finally have to earn their high comp rank". However i feel like those people fail to realize it's a TEAM GAME but that's just a side thing i wanted to vent about.

this is the time stamp on the defense matrix + rockets
