You can now play Overwatch as a fighting game ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

While Blizzard is working on a new Overwatch game, the Workshop wizards are flooding the original title with new content. A well-known modder DarwinStreams released an arcade called Overfight which turns the FPS hero game into fighting.

The mode has five playable heroes: Doomfist, Reinhardt, Winston, Genji and Torbjorn.

Darvin played his new mode for a third of a stream recently, discussing possible balance changes and bugs with the viewers. The modder recognized that the new mode has an asynchronous balance which makes it both exciting and hard to maintain in the long run.

The game has finishers (aka “fatalities”) with special animations at the end of fights. It also allows for curious things like high-ground and obstacles to exist on the battlefield, giving Overfight a lot of potential as a game.

For those who want to try the new mode out, Darvin recommends remapping the keybindings from WSAD to DAWS. He also mentioned that for a person who has been working on gamemodes for a while, creating such mod doesn't take a lot of time.

Overfight Workshop code: Z5XK2.
