The Experimental mode allows the Overwatch team to test major gameplay changes, similar to how balance updates are tested in the public test realm (PTR) but now available for both PC and console players in the live game. Progressions earned in the Experimental mode is kept in your account unlike the PTR. Changes introduced in Experimental are not guaranteed to go into the live game.
The first test in the Experimental Card is Triple Damage, which defaults team roles to one tank, three damage, and two supports. Players will be able to try the Triple Damage experiment for a limited time.
