Out of all the new features Overwatch has introduced over the years, the upcoming Workshop modding tools are by far the most impressive. The Workshop tools might not have the ability to create custom maps, but tweaking pretty much everything else seems to be on the table. They've only been in beta for a couple of weeks now, and already people have created comprehensive training courses, racing maps, new game modes, and everything in between.

With that in mind, I am very happy to announce that the Workshop tools will be officially launched this May 21st alongside the Anniversary update. In other words, not only will Overwatch get a whole bunch of Blizzard-created game modes this week, it will also get an avalanche of custom games created by the players themselves!

Best of all, it appears that all of the game modes created throughout the beta test will carry on into the full version as well. So whether you're a modder or someone that enjoys messing around with custom games, you'll be able to continue right from where you left off by putting in the unique code associated with the game mode of your choice. A pretty neat system!

Once the Workshop and the Anniversary update go live, I'll make sure to let you know, but until I'll leave you with a brief teaser for D.Va's new academy skin. It's not exactly going to "break the Internet" like Jeff Kaplan mentioned a while back, but it's certainly one the better D.Va skins out there!
