Overwatch Workshop master DarwinStreams has come out with a new mode that allows players to channel their creative side.

Since the Workshop came out, Darwin has released several different cool mods, like an Apex Legends-style ping and giving Widowmaker some Rainbow 6 Siege tech, just to name a few.

Now, Darwin has done it again with a new original painting/Pictionary mode using assets in the Overwatch Workshop.

Darwin StreamsAnyone remember Kid Pix?

Welcome to MY reality

The painting mode allows players to paint anything they want using Symmetra. You can even change the brush size by crouching or jumping and change colors by using the secondary fire button.

As soon as Darwin showed off the new mode on Twitter, countless people responded that the new mode would let them channel their inner fourth grader and draw exactly what you’re thinking of.

Hilarious implications aside, the mode can also be used by more than one player at a time, which means games like Pictionary are now a thing in Overwatch.

For players who want to channel their inner artist or just recreate that masterpiece you left on your desk in gradeschool, the code is: QR5YQ.

The mode is only available on the PTR version of the Workshop, but will be in the main game when the current PTR goes live.

Workshop, Replays, what’s next?

Overwatch has come out with a ton of new content in 2019 and besides the Workshop, Overwatch also just introduced a new Replay feature.

The Replay feature allows players to go back and watch matches from any vantage point and has been one of the most-requested Overwatch features since it was first introduced during the 2018 Overwatch World Cup.

Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan even hinted at more new content coming later this summer, but other than an eventual Hero 31, he didn’t share exactly what it would be.

With the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, players are getting to explore even more of the WoW universe than ever before. One player has found a cheeky little Overwatch Easter Egg while exploring. 

There’s a lot of different things to see in the new World of Warcraft expansion Shadowlands. There’s everything from magical chests to the huge tower seen in the trailer, Torghast, but there are also some fun little touches that are quintessentially Blizzard.

Whether it’s giving Widowmaker a skin that matches that of her Starcraft equivalent Nova in Overwatch, or the fact that you can own a baby Winston pet in WoW, the Blizzard universe is full of fun little Easter Eggs – if you know where to look.

Well, Blizzard have done it yet again in WoW, where a fun little Easter Egg will have Overwatch fans hyped.

The WoW: Shadowlands universe is pretty intense, but it’s still got some little fun Easter Eggs.

Player finds Torbjorn Easter Egg in WoW

One player on Twitter has discovered a cheeky little Overwatch reference in the Halls of Valor which, while it’s existed since the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, has risen to prominence yet again due to this Twitter post about Shadowlands.

User Jay3OW, a streamer for Overwatch League team Florida Mayhem, posted a screenshot of himself in the Halls of Valor standing in front of two NPCs: King Tor and King Bjorn, who just happen to be positioned right next to each other.

It goes without saying that this is a subtle nod to the Overwatch hero Torbjorn, who Jay3 has no doubt played once or twice. He taunts Blizzard for successfully having ‘deciphered the coded message’ and seems over the moon with his fun little discovery.

So while it’s just a seemingly silly little detail, it’s great to see how much effort that Blizzard to go into every game they create to give it their own stamp of authenticity.

Will we find more of these throughout the Shadowlands? Who knows, but it’ll be fun to look for them either way!
