Third person Overwatch you say?

After the announcement players immediately started playing around with the Workshop, but Reddit user BlizzconX shared a new third-person mode that seems to have become an instant hit.

According to Blizzzcon, the camera can be placed in any corner of the screen in the workshop, but they went with it in the bottom right corner.

The new mode looks awesome and like a lot of fun to play, plus it shows the heroes entire skin instead of what can be seen in first person mode.

There is one issue with the mode: aiming seems to be a bit off as Bastion's projectiles seem to land to the left of the reticule.

Quit stalling, what's the code?

For players who want to try out Blizzcon's third person mode in the Workshop, the code is: NVFTS.

Besides the aiming issues, the hero models also block a bit of the screen, but it really doesn't seem any worse than playing first person.

Now that we know it's possible, maybe Blizzard will add a third person deathmatch mode into the Arcade rotation.

The sheer amount of content that has already come out of the Workshop is kind of insane, and it doesn't show any sign of slowing down soon.
