Artist Re-Imagines Overwatch Heroes as Dark Souls Bosses

Passionate fans are known to show love for their favorite games in plenty of ways, in this case by making some awesome art featuring a few Overwatch characters crossing over into the Dark Souls world. The artist may work on more, if there’s demand.

Overwatch, Blizzard’s newest IP, launched today after the servers went live last night. Fans have been clamoring for months about the game’s diverse and colorful cast of heroes with loads of custom art and cosplay pictures hitting the web.

One artist, with the username Doctaword on DeviantArt, posted on the dedicated Overwatch subreddit today to share a gallery of five images featuring some of Overwatch’s most popular characters looking downright frightening and straight out of Dark Souls.

The creator commented on the post to say that the endeavor of re-designing these heroes took a great deal of time, but is open to doing more in the near future. The image sizes also make for great mobile wallpapers if you are looking to express your love for either series.

Overwatch is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game received a rare 10 from Game Informer.
