It has been reported that Boston Uprising have signed Team UK main tank Cameron ‘Fusions’ Boswoth for Season Two of the Overwatch League.

According to a report by ESPN, Fusions has already signed with the Uprising, making him the third UK player confirmed for Overwatch League Season Two after Philadelphia Fusion’s Isaac ‘Boombox’ Charles and Harrison ‘Kruise’ Pond, who will play for the new Paris team.

The report comes in the wake of an incredible upset for the UK team in the Overwatch World Cup, defeating the USA in the quarter-finals, a team many were hailing as potential tournament favorites.

Team UK were ultimately eliminated by eventual champions South Korea in the semi-finals, losing 0-2 in the best-of-five as a result of drawing on two maps in the series.

In particular, Fusions was credited as one of the minds behind the squad’s success, a vocal in-game leader whose talent for co-ordinating the team played a significant role in Team UK’s upset victory in the quarter-finals.

Fusions might not have had much exposure on the international stage prior to this year’s World Cup, but he’s not without tenure as a player.

In Season One of the 2018 European Contenders, Fusions helped take London Spitfire academy team British Hurricane to first place. In Season Two the team struggled and ended up fighting to avoid relegation, but managed to retain a spot for Season Three.

Season Two of the Overwatch League is set to kick off on February 14 of 2019. The new season will see eight brand-new expansion teams join the fray, as well as several of the original twelve returning with significantly revamped rosters.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
