Workshop update grants unprecedented power for creators
“We’re taking off the oven mitts,” says gameplay engineer Dan Reed.
“What?” says fellow gameplay engineer Zach Metcalf. They’re talking about the new patch for Overwatch’s Workshop, the in-game scripting system that allows players to craft their own custom game modes. That’s the story of the Workshop in this patch: more power, fewer limitations, and—Reed and Metcalf hope—even cooler creations as a result.
Reed and Metcalf share a particular passion for the Workshop born partly from their personal histories. Reed is a seasoned Blizzard veteran who’s been on the Overwatch team since the very beginning; he was one of the first engineers to support the development of Workshop in 2017.
