Minecraft tinkerer and D.Va fan ‘McMakistein’ managed to recreate the pilot and her mech entirely in the sandbox title on their way to making a fully playable Overwatch map in Vanilla.

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.

Blizzard EntertainmentD.Va: now in Minecraft.

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.

Blizzard EntertainmentD.Va got a small buff in the latest Overwatch patch.

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.


Mr Beast gives away $10k in most ridiculous Minecraft challenge yet

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
