And by big change we mean huge. Massive. In that Mercy's Resurrection ability will no longer be her Ultimate ability, it will be her second regular ability. Yeah, massive. The new version of Resurrect will only target a single player. So then, what will be her Ultimate? Something called Valkyrie.

Which makes use of Mercy's wings, giving her the ability to fly. And whilst in flight all her abilities are given a boost, like being able to multi-heal with her beam. And more.
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

Here's Jeff Kaplan going through the changes.



Which extend to some big changes also coming to D.Va, with the team testing out several "experiments" relating to her Defense Matrix. On the Competitive Season 6 front, the big change is that Seasons in Overwatch will now run for two months as opposed to three. Plus, Control maps will change to a best of three as opposed to a best of five. For more on that, head here.
