D.Va got left out in the cold, again, when it came to Halloween skins this year, so some fans have taken it upon themselves to give everyone’s favorite K-pop star her own spooky makeover.

The skin was created by Twitter user and Overwatch fan Red_Masca, and gives D.Va and her mech skeleton suits that would fit right into the game’s Halloween lineup.

D.Va herself has been given white hair and makeup that match the skeletal theme, and even a little skull charm for her Bunny Blaster.

Her mech is really the highlight of this concept though, with a terrifying demon skull complete with horns on top of the cockpit.

Altogether, this concept would perfectly blend in with the current lineup of Overwatch Halloween skins, D.Va mains wouldn’t mind seeing it included either.

Red has put a ton of art on his Twitter, but this D.Va skin seems to be one of his first times reimagining Overwatch heroes.

Overwatch art is a big part of what makes the game’s community so great, so hopefully Red keeps making his awesome interpretations, for the sake of all the D.Va players out there.

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.
