Overwatch has one of the most creative communities in gaming, and a new YouTube video that takes the game’s heroes into the world of DOOM is just another example of that.

The video was made by TGN, and it puts Baptiste in place of the Doom Slayer as he faces off against various Overwatch heroes wearing their demonic skins.

Overwatch becomes DOOM thanks to some creative editing that switches out different heroes primary fire to make it seem like Baptiste has different weapons available to him.

Mercy seems to play the main antagonist, which makes sense for anyone who’s played Junkenstein’s Revenge in Overwatch before.

The video is filled with impressive shots of maps transferred into the DOOM universe too, if you didn’t know better, you’d think you’re looking at a brand new-game.

Lijiang Tower looks particularly impressive with what seems to be a giant B.O.B. wearing his Halloween skin wreaking havoc on the surrounding city.

Reinhardt seems to be one of the more common enemies, along with Bastion and an enraged Winston shows up as one of the bosses as well.

Sigma fits right in as a boss in the DOOM universe as well, even though he’s one of the only heroes without a demon skin featured in the video.

The final shot of Baptiste’s rampage might be the most impressive, facing off against a demon Orisa he actually takes her head completely off with Brigitte’s flail.

Alright, battling against a giant Bastion looks pretty awesome.

The timing of the new video from TGN on YouTube couldn’t have been better, with DOOM Eternal set to release right around the corner on March 20, 2020.

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
