A new Overwatch Workshop creation that was shared on Reddit, called Mega Heroes, gives each team a giant character to use, each with their own special and unique abilities. And it’s somehow hilarious, creepy, and cool all at the same time. 

Overwatch’s Workshop function gives fans and creators a chance to make some insane custom game modes in the hit team-based first-person shooter. Players can jump in, create their own match with unique rule sets and modifications, and then share them with the community. The results can be pretty breathtaking at times.

There’s not many limitations when it comes to the feature, allowing players a large amount of freedom when it comes to creating what they want to. Now, one Reddit user named MrSqu1dward has created a simple and cool, yet terrifying variant of the normal mode and it’s absolutely hilarious.

Mega Heroes allows two teams to battle it out with a giant character on each side.

The custom mode, titled Mega Heroes, pits two teams against each other like normal, but gives one player from each group a giant hero to control. Respawns in the mode are allowed for normal-sized players so long as that team’s mega hero is still alive. The team who can wipe the other, including their mega hero, wins the round.

In addition, the mega heroes have their own special ability, although details about this are a bit scarce. It’s unclear whether or not each one has its own ability or if it’s shared across all of them.

Regardless, the mode seems pretty comical based on the trailer put together by its creator, and it’s more than likely only matter of time before some hilarious clips from the mode make their way online.

If you want to play the mode for yourself, all you have to do is enter the code 8EE5G in the Workshop and you’ll get access to it. As with every other creation made with the feature, it’s available for play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
