As part of Blizzard’s Overwatch showcase at Gamescom 2017, a brand new map and animated short are going to be revealed.
The brand new Overwatch map will be detailed at 18:00 CEST (17:00 BST) on Monday, 21st August during Blizzard’s special preview video that showcases all of its playable content for Gamescom 2017.
The animated short will be revealed on the main stage and via live stream during the Blizzard Reveal Ceremony at 18:00 CEST (17:00 BST) on Wednesday, 23rd August.
Horizon Lunar Colony was the latest map to hit Overwatch’s live servers back in June, and we covered a datamine earlier which suggests that the new map will be Junkertown. Going by Blizzard’s Eichenwalde reveal at last year’s Gamescom event, the new map should be coming to Overwatch sometime in September.
Overwatch fans have also been clamouring for a new animated short, and it’s been a long eight months since Sombra’s Infiltration. We’re unsure as to who it’ll focus on, but our bet is on Mei getting her time in the limelight. No matter who it may be, we can’t wait for the reveal.
We’ll be covering all the latest news from Gamescom 2017, so make sure you have our site bookmarked for future updates!
