You can now play Golf in Overwatch with new Torbjorn workshop mode

Overwatch fans have been hard at work bringing their ideas to life with the Workshop, yet, one player has struck a hole-in-one with their creation of Torbjorn Golf.

Blizzard launched the Overwatch Workshop to the PTR [Public Test Realm] back on April 24. While the creative mode is not yet available to all players, those who have gotten their hands on the new tools have come up with a ton of new ways to play the game.

Some fans have messed with the idea of creating new heroes, others have ‘addressed’ long-standing ‘bugs‘, and some have even developed brand new game modes to share with friends. Those new modes have been taken to the next level – allowing players to turn Torbjorn into Tiger Woods.

BlizzardTorbjorn is the newest Overwatch character to get their own Workshop mode.

In a post to the Overwatch subreddit, user OfficialRaider showed off their newest Workshop idea – Torbjorn Golf – which has taken around a week to create and lets up to 12 players take in a round of 18 holes on Blizzard World.

The mode operates similar to games like Golf With Friends. Instead of hitting a ball at the hole, players operate as the ball itself – launching Torbjorn at the flagstick without the need for a putter.

However, there are elements of the classic EA Sports Golf games, as toggling your Torbjorn to crouch will give you a preview of the hole, similar to how professional golf players ‘read’ shots in actual play.

What is the Torbjorn Golf map code?

As of now, the only course available to play is OfficialRaider’s Blizzard World but, if it proves popular, it can’t be too long before someone expands on the mode and throws up something else.  

While it would probably prove a little too hard to recreate iconic real-life courses like Augusta National or St Andrews, sending Torbjorn around Eichenwalde or Temple of Anubis doesn’t seem too far fetched.

As ever, if you want to play the workshop creation in its current form, the code you need to punch in is: QT7TQ.


Overwatch update gives Winston Sombra and D.Va new Karaoke voice lines

Overwatch’s last patch on November 19 has finally given Sombra, Winston, and D.Va new Easter Egg karaoke voice lines on the Busan map.

The ability for certain heroes to sing on Busan isn’t exactly a secret, but it is a fun little Easter Egg hidden away. Devs have apparently been hard at work adding heroes to this exclusive club recently as well.

A few months ago Ashe, Baptiste, and Widowmaker joined the club, and, just before 2020 wraps up, Winston, Sombra, and D.Va have finally been let in on the fun as well.

The karaoke spawn room on Busan lets Overwatch heroes sing their hearts out.

Apparently added during the November 19 patch, these new voice lines weren’t found by players until a few days later when videos started to pop up. Sure enough, all three have new voice lines, though we wouldn’t exactly call what Sombra is doing “singing.”

Instead of laying down any bars, Sombra simply discusses the merits of hacking, pays off all of the neighbors’ bills (how nice), and changes the Karaoke bar landlord’s WiFi password (not so nice).

Winston’s two lines play on him being both a great ape and a great scientist. One has him explaining the first law of thermodynamics to players: “energy cannot be created or destroyed.” His other is about clapping with his hands and feet since, you know, he’s a gorilla.

Finally, the pièce de résistance, at least for all of the D.Va players out there, are her new Karaoke lines. In Overwatch lore, Hana ‘D.Va’ Song is both an esports champion and K-POP star, so you’d think she would have gotten her lines much sooner than she did.

If the Tank singing “Pew Pew Pew” isn’t adorable enough, she also proudly proclaims, “someone has to save the world, it might as well be me,” along with another line in her native tongue, Korean.

This brings the number of heroes who can sing on Busan up to 17 with Winston, Sombra, and D.Va; which is officially more than half of the 32 heroes currently in the game.
