Oasis, first revealed back at Blizzcon, launches today on all platforms. You can watch a new video of it above that provides a quick run through the map.
Maybe the most notable element of Oasis are its jump pads, which are a first for the game. When Oasis was unveiled, Blizzard talked about how these serve not just as a means for getting around, but also as a way to modify or amplify some Ultimate abilities, such as McCree's. Oasis also features moving traffic that can kill you if you're hit by it.
Oasis, a Control mode map, has been available on the PC version's public test servers since the end of November.
"Oasis is one of the world's most advanced cities, a shining jewel rising from the Arabian Desert," reads Blizzard's official description. "A monument to human ingenuity and invention, researchers and academics from around the region came together to found a city dedicated to scientific progress without restraints. 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."
Screenshots of Oasis can be seen in the gallery above. Check out our previous coverage for more on what to expect from Overwatch in 2017.
