New Overwatch Map Released

A brand new map has been released for Overwatch and it's now accessible for all players on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

The new map is called Oasis, and it features a couple of concepts new to Overwatch. Before we get into that, though, let's take a look at the official description for Oasis.

"Researchers and academics from around the region came together to found a city dedicated to scientific progress without restraints -- a monument to human ingenuity and invention. The city and its inhabitants are governed by the Ministries, a collection of brilliant minds who possess many secrets that have attracted the interest of powerful organizations from around the world."

The first interesting addition to Oasis is the traffic - moving traffic will prove to be an obstacle, or potential weapon - if a hero comes into contact with the traffic, chances are they're going to need to be scraped off of the pavement.

Oasis also has jump pads, which should add a new level of verticality to Overwatch. Many Overwatch maps have multiple levels for players to traverse, but a jump pad will allow less mobile heroes to reach these different heights easier.

As for the appearance of the map; it's set in a city in the Arabian Desert. Players will be able to play the Control map on Oasis.

Will you be testing out the new Oasis map? It's been on the public test realm for PC in the past but this is the first time it's openly available to all platforms.
