The team behind Overwatch is keeping the new content coming. July saw the release of the game’s first new hero, the support sniper Ana. Next up is a new map, unveiled today at Gamescom and scheduled for release next month.
The map, called Eichenwalde, takes place in a castle town that Blizzard says is “set in abandoned village on the outskirts of Stuttgart, Germany.” The map is gorgeous, picturesque and perfectly captures what we’d expect from a medieval castle town.
The story behind the map has this town as the site of an important battle in the war between humans and machines:
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.
It’s also connected to the upcoming Bastion video, which Blizzard is set to release soon.
The map has one team escorting a battering ram to Eichenwalde Castle to reclaim the remains of Balderich, while the other must stop them. The map is an Assault/Escort hybrid.
Eichenwalde is set to release sometime in September; but, if you happen to be at Gamescom this week, it’s already playable there.
