An astounding Overwatch corrupted hero concept has surfaced in the game’s online community and there’s no doubt that it looks not only game ready, but ready to represent the Los Muertos organization as well.

There have been a number of exciting hero concepts created since the title first launched in May 2016, ranging from interesting Jurassic Park inspired characters to heroes wearing Plague Doctor masks. 

However, a concept video that was uploaded to YouTube channel ‘Blame The Controller – Overwatch’ includes a brand new character creation that will “put terror in the hearts of your enemies” and he’s called Vidal.

The hero is not just a standalone design, but comes with an interesting backstory and even some bonus content in the form of a fully animated comic. 

Working with the secretive Los Muertos organization in Overwatch, Vidal has been described by his creator as an evil healer that has more utility with lower healing. The character differs from Baptiste, who was originally in Talon, as he’s involved deeply with a different dark org within the game. 

Blame the controller - Overwatch, YoutubeHere’s a taster of this Overwatch hero concept’s interesting backstory.

Vidal has a number of different abilities, some of which are similar to that of others in the game’s roster, and others which set this fighter apart from others. 

The most important part of his entire kit is a stance swapping feature called Spirit Swap, according to the creator, as it controls how other abilities will work. There are a number of ability pairs available to the character, too, which include an Angry Spirit gun, paired with Empower, which buffs teammate damage for a short amount of time. 

Its debuff feature is Weaken, along with two self buff abilities called Blessing and Blood Thirst. These can be used as self healing mechanisms, but because the latter is activated in the spiteful stance, it’s more of a ‘life steal’ attack. Other details can be seen in the video also, such as a look at his ultimate – Spirit Protectors. 

The likelihood of this exact design making its way into the game is unlikely, but there’s definitely a chance that a future hero would be deeply entangled with the Los Muertos organization. This is definitely one direction that Blizzard could go.

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
