McMakistein has already created other playable Overwatch heroes in Minecraft, but said D.Va presented a unique challenge because of her Mech and pilot forms.
“When you select D.Va you will find yourself inside a gigantic mech, which took me quite some time to model,” McMakistein said about the project.
Overwatch, but it’s in Minecraft
D.Va comes with all of her abilities in McMakistein’s creation, that work just like they do in Overwatch.
Her cannons are better at close range, and her Self Destruct can even be thrown with boosters in the project, again, just like it can be in the game.
Minecraft D.Va seems to move around just like regular D.Va does as well, both inside her mech and in pilot mode, where she has her Light Gun and can tactically crouch – which is key.
The YouTuber is also planning on creating a fully-playable Overwatch match in Minecraft Vanilla, which you’ll be able to play D.Va and a number of other heroes, just like in the FPS.
It seems they’ve already gotten a start on a few maps, including Hanamura and Eichenwalde, based on the full YouTube video that also explains how to get D.Va in Minecraft for yourself.
What else is new with D.Va?
D.Va got a slight buff in the August 13 patch, after having her Defense Matrix’s distance slashed earlier in 2019.
Baby D.Va now takes less energy to charge up her Call Mech ultimate, which means less time where she’s an easy target for enemy snipers and picks.
So even if you get sick of playing D.Va in Overwatch, not that you ever would, now you can play her in Minecraft as well.
