Blizzard brought some news to this year’s Gamescom. Company’s bestseller Overwatch will get its first post-launch map. It’s a castle village in Germany with a medieval atmosphere, called Eichenwalde.
Check out a video:
And here is the official story:
The site of one of the most famous battles during the Omnic Crisis, it was here that the leader of the Crusaders, Balderich von Alder, and a handful of his best soldiers made a last stand against an advancing automaton army. Outnumbered and outgunned, they were ultimately slain during the resulting combat. However, thanks to their valiant efforts, the German military was able to push back the omnic offensive and win the fight.
The goal here is to reclaim Balderich’s remains, a map objective. The update is coming “soon.”
