Overwatch transformed into DOOM with impressive animation

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.

Baptiste becomes the Doom Slayer in this awesome video.

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.


Creepy Overwatch skin idea would be D.Va’s scariest cosmetic yet

An Overwatch fan has come up with a new skin for D.Va that would actually make her MEKA into a nightmare-inducing monster straight out of a fairy tale.

D.Va is, rightly so, one of the most popular heroes in Overwatch, and could be considered the face of the franchise, if Tracer hadn’t already locked that spot up.

Even though she just got two new skins for the 2020 All-Stars and Halloween Terror events, this obviously wasn’t enough for cosmetic-starved D.Va fans.

To keep things moving right along, artist Jouste has come up with a cosmetic based on Baba Yaga, a witch from Slavic folklore who lives in a hut that walks around on chicken legs.

Baba Yaga hut“Mom, can you come pick us up now? The cabin is walking around.”

As you would expect, in lieu of a cabin in the woods, D.Va only has her Mech, and chicken legs actually look extremely natural on it, since they both bend the same way.

Similar to her Halloween skin, it’s also become a house as well, but instead of a spooky haunted Korean temple, it looks more like the residence of an evil babushka, complete with a beak coming out of the front door.

Hana herself is sporting your classic pointed witchy hat with twigs, feathers, and frizzled hair to really sell the whole “living alone in the middle of nowhere” look.

Finally, even her Bunny Blaster sidearm has been made over, and now sports an adorable little frog holding on to the bottom who has a great front-row seat to watch D.Va frag out.

DVa Baba Yaga
Imagine just walking through Eichenwalde forest and suddenly a chicken-legged MEKA bursts out of the trees.

We don’t know which heroes will be getting Winter Wonderland skins for the next Overwatch seasonal event up on the calendar, but we wouldn’t mind it at all if Blizzard continued to bribe us all by giving D.Va another new skin to try and unlock.

Winter Wonderland usually gets going around the first or second week of December, but stick with Dexerto to find out the exact dates as soon as they’re announced.
