Another masterpiece has come out of the Overwatch Workshop mode and this time it’s Hotline Miami being completely recreated.
The new Workshop mode in Overwatch has opened up a gateway to many things players would’ve thought to be impossible in the game.
Overwatch is a first-person shooter but that hasn’t stopped players from putting some major twists on the game, as evidenced by this top-down Hotline Miami recreation that somehow works out quite well.
Overwatch meets Hotline Miami…?
If you’re one of those people who think that a game like this wouldn’t work in Overwatch, just taking a quick look at this mod would quickly convince you otherwise.
Outside of just getting it up and running from a top-down view, the creator even went the extra mile in getting an actual game running there.
The original Overwatch heroes all make an appearance complete with their own weapons to make them feel different from one another.
- Pistol (Mercy) – 15 rounds. Medium fire rate.
- Sniper (Zenyatta) – 10 rounds. Slow fire rate. Increased aim distance.
- Shotgun (Roadhog) – 6 rounds. Medium fire rate. Large spread.
- Assault Rifle (Orisa) – 24 rounds. Fast fire rate.
- Sword (Genji) – A sword. Medium swing rate. Rather large range so to compensate, Genji is mildly slower than all other heroes.
The game mode is free for all so make sure you pick the hero you want before you fight to the death.
What other creations have come to the Workshop?
As mentioned earlier, the Workshop mode has allowed fans to create numerous new modes for Overwatch.
Some players have even started to use the Workshop mode as a way of implement buffs for heroes, such as Roadhog turning into a jump pad.
The possibilities are endless and really go as far as the player’s imagination will take them.
