Overwatch Workshop Creation Lets Zenyatta Walk -- Sort of

Overwatch Workshop artist DarwinStreams has made Zenyatta walk, but at what cost?

Overwatch Workshop artist DarwinStreams has returned with what may be his most cursed creation yet: Zenyatta, but he can walk. Sort of.

Darwin built the Overwatch creation on his stream, creating a Zenyatta that comes close to genuine bipedal motion. The Omnic's feet touch the floor, but he still seems to glide around, letting his legs swing as though he had no control over them at all. The overall effect is disconcerting, to say the least.

Calls for Zenyatta to walk date back at least as far as Overwatch League Season 1, when one enterprising fan brought a poster demanding the developers "Let Zen walk." The Overwatch developers were only too happy to oblige, producing a video of Zenyatta high-stepping around Temple of Anubis. The results were a little sillier, but in the end just about as unsettling.

Maybe it's for the best that Zen never walk again.
