Overwatch Workshop Gives Players a Chance to Build Their Own Games And Heroes (VIDEO)
Blizzard has been very good about continuously bringing content to Overwatch. From timed events, to new characters and maps, the game is constantly evolving and growing. While the developers are sure to continue adding new content to the FPSeven now, they’re also ready to give fans a chance to get in on the action as well by giving them a new tool called the Overwatch Workshop.
A recent Overwatch blog post reveals that the Workshop is, in essence, a simple scripting system that will allow players to change the way they play within the game browser. Players will be able to set up their own win conditions, change player health and damage, as well a many other character attributes and rules.
The video above also gives several examples of things players will be able to create in the Overwatch Workshop, such as a game mode similar to the childhood game “The Floor Is Lava” where players take damage when they are on the ground. This “Molten Floor” game mode sounds quite intriguing, but it’ll be interesting to see just what fans can come up with as well. Perhaps some of them will become permanent installations to the game like Halo’s Forge and the Grifball or Infected game variants.
Overwatch is available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Do you have any ideas of game variants you’d like to make? Let us know your thoughts on the Overwatch Workshop and more in the comments section below.
