A hilarious YouTube video of the female Overwatch voice actors performing their ultimate lines, but being killed halfway through, has gained traction online.

Overwatch’s voice actors are celebrities in their own right, highly regarded by the game’s ever-growing community and always willing to provide some comedy for their fans.

That point is hammered home by a YouTube video that has been gaining traction online on November 2, specifically on the Overwatch subreddit.

The video in question, which was actually uploaded back in July, was recorded at the Florida Supercon 2018 convention during the ‘Women of Overwatch’ panel that took place.

In it, the voice actors perform the voice-over for their character’s ultimate, but have it interrupted halfway through by them being killed. As you can imagine, it’s pretty damn funny:

“Every time I see a video with them I love them more. Mercy’s sounded exactly like in-game,” said ‘goldsbananas’ on Reddit.

Another user noted that seeing the actions along with the voices made the clip even better, stating: “Their body languages improved the video so much, I love how into it they were.”

After a bit of digging, we were able to find the full Q&A panel from the Florida Supercon event on YouTube.

The question that resulted in the hilarious clip, “Could you possibly do your ult lines, but in the middle of it get killed?” can be found at the 20:05 mark.

Overwatch meets WarCraft with epic RTS custom game mode

Overwatch and RTS games like WarCraft and StarCraft might seem like complete opposites, but the two styles have been combined into a very promising-looking Workshop mode that lets you control multiple heroes as if they were individual units.

If we look at Blizzard games like one big family tree, then the StarCraft and Warcraft franchises could probably be considered something like Overwatch’s grandparents.

Back in the day StarCraft especially was one of the biggest esports on the planet, but the RTS genre has sadly fallen to wayside in recent years. Both still have dedicated communities though (even after the disaster that was Reforged) and it’s safe to say a good number also play Overwatch now as well.

Irish Overwatch manager Andygmb clearly hasn’t outgrown his love for real-time strategy, not that one ever does, decided to take the top down style from those games and apply it to all of our favorite heroes using Josbird’s cursor tool in the Workshop mode.

You can scroll around the map, and drag the map to select multiple units and control them all at once. Like an RTS game, you can tell them where to go, and when to attack something.

Right off the top of our heads if they ever were to make an Overwatch game like this, we’d wager that Roadhog rush would be a great opening build to start with.

But it doesn’t take much to imagine a League of Legends-style game as well being made playable with this type of game either. Sure, Blizzard already has Heroes of the Storm, but that only features a few Overwatch heroes to choose from, where this could add the whole roster.

Overwatch has over 30 different heroes that could make all kinds of different units.

With Heroes of the Storm already existing (and producing cooler skins for D.Va than Overwatch itself) our chances of seeing an official RTS featuring the game’s heroes are unfortunately slim to none.

That has never stopped players before though, so we’d keep our eyes out for some kind of League clone to appear before too long on the Custom Game browser. Until then, you can always waste more time playing Among Us there as well.
