What you need to know
- Blizzard Entertainment has added googly eyes to all of the Overwatch heroes for April Fools' Day.
- The eyes have full movement physics and look hilarious when characters use their abilities.
- The eyes also appear during highlight intros and victory poses, as well as on every skin.
For April Fools' Day, Overwatch developer Blizzard Entertainment has given each and every hero in the game a set of googly eyes that appear over where their regular eyes are. These googly eyes are fully animated and will move around as characters move and use their abilities, looking hilarious. The eyes appear on every skin in the game, and are also visible during highlight intro animations and victory poses.
What do you think of this April Fool's Day joke? Personally, I think it's both very clever and very funny, which is what every April Fools' themed gag should be. The eyes look comical on every hero, but I think they look the silliest on Reinhardt. Seeing the googly eyes spin around like crazy when he charges an enemy in-game is something you can't help but chuckle at, especially if he connects with a target and flattens them against a wall.
Overwatch is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Overwatch 2 doesn't have a release date just yet, but hopefully Blizzard unveils more about it soon.
