Overwatch doesn't support modding, but you can mod Overwatch into other games.

With help from the community, you can add your favorite Overwatch characters into non-Blizzard titles like Street Fighter 5, XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, and The Sims 4. Others have created whole Overwatch worlds in games like Minecraft. Maybe you just like Overwatch's font and want to use in a game like No Man's Sky; modders can fix that, too.

Here are the best Overwatch mods for games other than Overwatch itself.

Mod Overwatch characters into The Sims 4

With user-created custom content, you can put Overwatch characters into your The Sims 4 game. Want to replace the Grim Reaper with Reaper? No problem. Want your The Sims 4 family to simply be Overwatch fans? You can do that, too. Just want your Sim to wear D.Va's makeup and a varsity jacket or Hanzo's tattoo? Those are both options.

Play Overwatch in Minecraft

There's a seriously dedicated community of Minecraft players creating the Overwatch world inside the block-based game. From creating the heroes to mimicking gameplay, the options are endless for Overwatch in Minecraft. Likewise, there are some very impressive recreations of Overwatch maps in Minecraft. See them all at Planet Miinecraft's Overwatch hub.

This one's simple—definitely a why not download—that changes No Man's Sky's original font to the font used in Overwatch. Overwatch's font is pretty aesthetically pleasing, so it's no wonder that folks have downloaded this one and put it to use. This little one just looks really damn good in No Man's Sky.

Put Sombra in Skyrim

Want Overwatch hacker Sombra to follow you around in Skyrim? You can do that. You can adjust followers in Skyrim to be Overwatch heroes, if that's your thing. I mean, there's really no better follower than an Overwatch superhuman, right?

Up the ante by actually playing as Talon sniper Widowmaker herself while using Sombra as your follower.

It's not out of the question that Overwatch will one day allow its own modding, but for now, the best you can do is to mod Overwatch into your other favorite games.
