Season 2 of the Overwatch League kicks off in just a couple of weeks from now, and it looks as though a new map will land just in time for the start of the new premiere competitive season.

Named Paris, the new map has just been added to the Overwatch PTR, allowing everyone to get an early look at what's involved.

Here's last night's announcement that marked the release of Paris on the test servers:

Paris is an Assault map, which means teams will have to either capture or defend two points.

We've had a little play around with it ourselves this morning, and it's a branching collection of side alleys and alternative approaches which will require a great deal of coordination on the attacking side in particular.

It typically takes around two weeks for a map in testing to hit the live servers, and given the launch of Overwatch League 2019 on this coming Valentine's Day, it seems almost impossible that Blizzard wouldn't take the opportunity to highlight the “city of love” on the game's biggest stage.

We'll have a guide to playing on Paris for you a little later on today. In the meantime, here's an early video from YouTube which shows off some of the architecture and winding objective pathways you'll find on the new map:
