Blizzard has created a new map for Overwatch called Horizon Lunar Colony and has added it to the PC versions PTR servers. As well as making it available to test out yourself, they have also released a map preview trailer covering the origins of the map.
Based in a scientific base on the moon where Winston grew up, the Assault map has you fighting to control the colony’s facilities. The trailer is narrated by Winston himself describing how the colony went radio silent and how the scientists disappeared. The map even includes little futuristic Roomba’s that did the tidying up.
For those on consoles or who play PC but don’t venture into the test region, check out the map preview trailer below:
Built as a first step towards humanity’s renewed exploration of space, the Horizon Lunar Colony’s goal was to examine the effects of prolonged extraterrestrial habitation—on human and ape alike. The scientists’ research proved incredibly promising…until, suddenly, all contact and communications with the base were lost.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
