Overwatch's New D.Va Map, Busan, Revealed; Out Now On PTR
D.Va fans rejoice.
In the midst of Gamescom 2018, Blizzard has announced a new map for its competitive shooter, Overwatch. The map, called Busan, is a Control map themed around D.Va, and it's available to try right now on PC. A trailer for the map was shown during Korea Fanfest, where Blizzard held an event and shared some more information about it. You can get a look at it in the replay of our livestream above.
"Travel to Busan, South Korea and battle for control across three distinct locales within one map: Sanctuary, Downtown, and MEKA Base," reads the trailer's description. "Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, surrounded by an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture. Clash in the bustling metropolis of Downtown, where players will fight across a busy PC bang, flashy karaoke bar, and central light rail station (just watch out for the train).
"Contest for position in MEKA Base--home of South Korea's frontline defense against the gwishin omnic attacks: D.Va and the rest of the MEKA squad," it continues. "Teams must fight to hold each of the three stages to establish complete control of the city that refuses to surrender its way of life to any threat." Check out the trailer above.
The new map is available now on the Public Test Realm, letting anyone who owns a PC copy of the game try it out. To do so, you'll need to first download the PTR client from the Battle.net launcher.
Alongside news of the map, Blizzard released a new animated short featuring D.Va. During the show the Lego Group also teased that an announcement concerning a collaboration between Overwatch and Lego is coming soon. It showed the outlines of six Lego figures that are styled after various Overwatch heroes. During a recent interview, the developers behind Diablo 3 on Switch discussed working with Nintendo's console, saying Overwatch on Switch is feasible.
