Popular Overwatch Workshop mode which allows players to race as D.Va.

Since the Overwatch Workshop was introduced, it has allowed fans of the game to create their own maps and game modes for other players to experience and enjoy

So far it has been quite popular among Overwatch players, with many creative modes being added to the workshop including a Quake inspired game mode.

BlizzardD.Va’s Mech boosters ability makes her an easy choice to be used for Overwatch racing modes.

Seagull is one of Overwatch’s most popular players, who has competed at a professional level and has also appears to be enjoying some of the modes that the Workshop has to offer.

The former Dallas Fuel player tried out a new workshop mode while streaming, which allows players to race around the map as D.Va using her boosters ability continually while in the air.

This new racing mode pits players against each other to make it through all of the checkpoints the quickest and it seems to have won Seagull over, as he says, “This game mode is so cool,” during his first attempt on stream.

The movement in the racing mode can be difficult to master, however, as Seagull found out for himself after getting confused where he was after going too fast, “Im going too fast for my own good, chat.”

Not long after the Overwatch Workshop’s release there seems to be quite a variety of hilarious modes for fans of the game to test out for themselves. 

It is quite likely that we will see even more interesting modes for players to experience coming out of the Overwatch Workshop in future.

Halloween is almost upon us, and cosplayers everywhere are preparing for the holiday. This Overwatch Mercy cosplay goes above and beyond when bringing this angelic healer to life and deserves some extra recognition. 

When Overwatch came out back in 2016, there were only three healers, and Mercy was one of them. A lot has changed since then and there are a lot more Heroes, and the hero herself has seen quite a few changes. Despite this, she remains a fan favorite, especially for cosplayers.

There are plenty of awesome OW cosplays out there, but Hanxiaoyue really brings her to life with the help of @Anka_Ephemere on Twitter. The two collaborate for a fantastic rendition with excellent photography and visual effects.

Mercy cosplayer preps for Halloween

Despite the fact that Witch Mercy is Mercy’s Halloween skin, Hanxiaoyue went with the Winged Victory skin with some extra spooky effects, and she nailed it. Starting with her hair, she puts her blonde hair in a ponytail and parts her bangs. It is held back by a golden crown with wing-like ear guards, just like in the cosmetic. To cap it off, she includes the fern-like plants behind her ears.

For her attire, she dons a white tunic with gold embroidery held up with a brown rope. On her arms and legs, she wears bracelets. On her back, she has Mercy’s signature wings, modeled directly off of the skin. Then, there is of course the staff, which is perfect down to the last little leaf.

If the cosplay itself wasn’t impressive enough, the graphic design that goes along with it really gives it life. @Anka_Ephemere includes two shots with Mercy on a dark and fiery battlefield, and then another two with her at what appears to be Ilios Ruins.

The first two images are fitting for the hero, as she is a beacon of hope and light on the battlefield. The Winged Victory skin also based on the Goddess Nike and works well with the other images on Ilios, which is an Overwatch map based on Santorini in Greece.

This is one of the most impressive Mercy cosplays out there, and Hanxiaoyue really brings the character to life along with @Anka-Ephemere’s photography and graphic design.
