Thanks to the Overwatch Workshop mode, players are able to bring their own designs into the game, which has led us to getting a full-blown recreation of Call of Duty’s Zombies mode.

For players out there who are growing bored with the traditional version of Overwatch, they could switch over to the Workshop mode and spice things up a bit.

This allows players to experience a variety of other games that might lend themselves nicely to the Overwatch engine.

We’ve seen fans bring games like Super Smash Bros. into the mix in the past, and this latest creation perfectly reinvents Zombies from the Call of Duty franchise.

In a nearly 10-minute video, YouTuber APM guides viewers through what the game will entail, and the early returns are quite impressive.

Curiously, the zombies are played by Brigitte, but we suppose somebody had the play the role, so might as well give it to her.

The same currency system we can currently see in the Call of Duty series makes an appearance here, making it almost a shot-for-shot recreation.

As you earn more money, you’re able to upgrade your weapons to prevent yourself from being overrun by zombie Brigittes. Things can get chaotic, so it’s important to get those upgraded guns in a hurry if you want any chance of surviving.

Call of Duty’s Zombies mode is coming to Overwatch.

At first glance, it might seem crazy that something like this can run in Overwatch, but once you see it all in action, you’ll quickly have those concerns put to rest.

It is important to mention that the YouTuber says this is just a demo for right now, so it’s not actually ready for a full release. They explain a new video will be uploaded when it is and the Workshop code will be included.

With how far along everything looks right now, we expect it won’t be much longer until it’s released to the public for everybody to enjoy.

Overwatch players have been dying to know more details about Overwatch 2, but while the developers have remained tight-lipped on the details, they hinted that one of the new maps could take place in Kraków, Poland.

Overwatch 2’s development is still a mystery in many ways. It’s been delayed time and time again, with no release date in sight. To make matters worse, a series of job listings suggest it’s still far from completion. However, Dexerto’s Bill Cooney is confident that a delay could be a blessing in disguise.

Either way, fans are dying for more information. Fortunately, the developers have finally started dropping some hints, but it has nothing to do with an official release date. Instead, it has to do with a potential new map in Overwatch 2.

It feels like an eternity has passed since Overwatch 2 was first announced back in 2019.

A team of developers talked about the new map, Kanezaka, in a recent interview on the official website. They discussed the inspiration for the map along with its design and what players can expect. 

The interviewer then asked them, “If you could choose any location for a new Overwatch map, where would it be?” They probably expected to get a simple answer. Instead, they got a bombshell.

“You’ll see in Overwatch 2!” said the developers. One dove a little deeper and added, “Kraków, Poland. This is a city that I visited a few times and fell in love with. The medieval architecture is beautiful and well preserved, the city has very pleasant plazas and open spaces, with lots of interesting shapes and colors!”

At this stage, it’s nothing more than a hint. However, it’s a pretty strong one and a sign that it could be in the works.

Overwatch fans would love to see more locations in the sequel, and there’s no doubt that Kraków would be a great addition.

Hopefully, it’s the first of many more hints and the developers will reveal more details on what players can expect in Overwatch 2.
