Overwatch player brings Dorado map to Minecraft in most epic way

One of Overwatch’s oldest maps, Dorado, has been beautifully recreated in Minecraft with vibrant, bold colors that showcase how the map could look during the daytime.

Around four years after Overwatch debuted in May 2016, the game’s player base is anxious for news about its sequel, Overwatch 2, and hungry for their beloved FPS-MOBA hybrid to get revamped.

To help pass the time, some fans have even gone so far as to refresh the title themselves, imagining new skins, abilities, and even maps for 2016’s consensus Game of the Year.

In one particular instance, a fan has called upon their impressive Minecraft skills to create an ode to Dorado, one of Overwatch’s original Payload maps. This isn’t the first time someone has recreated one of Blizzard’s maps in the sandbox title, and one can only hope that it won’t be the last.

While Dorado is best known to Overwatch players during the night, content creator ‘stefayylmao’ has given the map a daytime treatment, immediately highlighting its vibrancy and flamboyance.

The colorful township is no longer lit by the dimmed navy of nighttime moonlight and the pale yellow exuded by lamps and closed windows, but, instead, by the blocky sun that blesses Minecraft’s entire Overworld with visibility.

This new treatment highlights the clays, yellows, pinks, and purples of the map, as well as the greenery of the surrounding mountains. Instead of simply referring to the real-world location that Dorado is based upon, the Manarola village in Italy, this gives Overwatch fans a chance to appreciate how the game’s Mexican town would look during the day.

The most popular pictures of Manarola are during dusk and at night, when splashes of light reveal the mountainous area’s brightly hued homes. But photos of it in the sun are equally impressive, as the cluster of vibrant buildings appears scattered around winding roads — perfectly fit as inspiration for the non-linear path of a Payload.

Stefayylmao is a YouTube editor for the Overwatch League’s Matthew ‘super’ DeLisi and therefore very familiar with Dorado. Their Minecraft ode is currently unfinished, but they explained that it might reach completion “sometime soon.”

While it’s not a carbon copy of the game’s map, it unmistakably follows the energy put forth by Dorado and Manarola. Fans will be excited to see if it gets fully fleshed out and if Blizzard is inspired enough to introduce their own daytime version in Overwatch 2.

The forever-skillful Jay-Jay Okocha has finally gotten his Prime ICON card in FIFA 21, and you can pick him up for your Ultimate Team ⁠— if you’re willing to part way with your coins. Here’s what you need to do.

Jay-Jay Okocha really pumped flavor into football. His stylish moves made the likes of Ronaldinho household names, and the Nigerian experienced plenty of success for himself with PSG, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Bolton.

Now, he can bring success to your FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The 90-rated Prime ICON is available through the game’s latest set of ICON SBCs, although you’ll have to be willing to part ways with a fair bit of cash for him.

Okocha’s Prime ICON card puts the legendary Nigerian into the 90s and primed for a Pace style to bump him up further theoretically.

With 87 Pace ⁠— one down from his base 85 ICON ⁠— he might not be as fast, but he makes up for it across the board with better Passing (+5), Shooting (+3), and Dribbling (+2). Throw on Hunter, and you can get up to 96 Pace and 90 Shooting. It’s a lethal card to have in CAM, especially when you take 5* Skills and 4* Weak Foot into account.

Jay-Jay Okocha ICON SBC price & requirements

Jay-Jay Okocha is the cheapest of the three new ICON SBCs, coming in at around 500,000 to 750,000 coins. If you’ve got spare cards lying around ⁠— especially high-rated untradeables ⁠— it might be worth the investment.
