Winston introduces you to the latest Overwatch map

News

The latest Overwatch map, Horizon Lunar Colony, is now live on the PTR. As described by Blizzard:

“Horizon Lunar Colony is an Assault map set in a scientific base on the moon. Built as a first step towards humanity’s renewed exploration of space, the 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.  

Now, many years later, attacking and defending teams must return to the moon and battle for control of the colony’s facilities, all while they discover clues as to the fate of its previous inhabitants.”

You can check it out for yourself in this neat video narrated by Winston:

And here are some snaps of the lunar map in all its glory.

We’re still waiting to see if a new hero will be announced, as Blizzard sure as hell teased that recently, but until then we’ll just settle for the mental image of Reaper sitting patiently in a space shuttle on his way to the moon.
