The Overwatch Workshop has allowed the community to explore crossovers with many popular games, with one user recreating a Zombies-esque gamemode from Call of Duty.

The options available within Overwatch’s workshop mode have made the game completely customizable in every aspect. The community has embraced this, using their creativity to bring games like StarFox 64, Smash, and even Flappy Bird alive in the Blizzard first person shooter.

The latest game to feature in the workshop though is a rendition of Call of Duty Zombies. The popular player-vs-environment gamemode has been around for years, and now Overwatch players can fend of hordes of crazed beasts on Horizon Lunar Colony.

Activision-BlizzardEver wanted to play CoD Zombies in Overwatch? Now you can, thanks to the workshop.

Reddit user ‘FrikinPopsicle69’ shared his new workshop creation, Horizon Breakout, to the world on September 17. 

The concept being the game mode is pretty interesting. An accident broke out on Horizon Lunar Colony, which has led to a swarm of raging Winstons becoming unleashed, terrorising the once-peaceful colony.

Players start off as Ana, trying to fend off the barrage of angry gorillas while keeping each other alive. With every kill you get, you earn points which you can put towards upgrading your hero. 

You can also spend your points on unlocking new areas of the map, going from Point B all the way through to the initial attackers spawn.

The game runs endlessly, with the objective to survive for as long as possible. If one of your teammates does kick the bucket though, you can revive them by standing where they died for a period of time.

As with every good game, there’s even a couple of Easter eggs, which Popsicle has shared with the community. 

One such feature is the ‘Hammond’s Rent-A-Tank’ store, which you can find in Hammond’s room near Point A. If you can get there, you will be able to access a super-powered tank for the round, helping you clear some of the more pesky Winstons.

If you’ve been having an itch for some good old PvE gameplay, or wanted to bring an old classic like Zombies back to life in the Overwatch universe, this workshop mode will satisfy you. Bring either yourself or up to three mates and help stop the base from being overrun.

The workshop code for Horizon Breakout is EFE3WD.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
