The big update that Blizzard’s released for Overwatch is quite the drop. Among other things, the new map and new play mode will definitely be inclusion that players will enjoy.
Detailed over at Battle.net, the highlights for the patch also includes new and updated features and new skins for Overwatch. But, we all know what you Overwatch players are itching for. The new map and mode. Here’s Blizzard run-down of the two big additions:
New Escort Map: Route 66
Through the travelers and road trippers who used to cross the US on historic Route 66 are gone, the Main Street of America still stands, a testament to a simpler time. The gas stations, roadside shops, and cafes have gone into disuse, and the fabled Deadlock Gorge is mostly seen from the comfort of transcontinental train cars. But amid the fading monuments of that earlier era, the outlaws of the Deadlock Gang are planning their biggest heist yet.
New Play Mode: Weekly Brawl!
Similar to its namesake feature in Hearthstone, Weekly Brawls are a fun, alternative way to play Overwatch. Each week, we’ll rotate in a different Weekly Brawl featuring a set of unique (and sometimes crazy) rules from our Custom Game system.
For example: In one Weekly Brawl, you’ll only be able to play Soldier: 76, while in another Weekly Brawl, a random hero will be selected for you each time you respawn. Other Weekly Brawls will restrict you to Support heroes only, or Tank heroes only, or Defense heroes only-and more!
To join a Weekly Brawl, select “Play” from the main menu and then select “Weekly Brawl!” You can queue up solo or in a party, and you’ll be matched into a 6v6 game versus other players.
A great breakdown of the March 22nd update by Overwatch Central gives players an idea of what to expect in the map and additional changes that Blizzard made.
Overwatch is set to come on May 24th for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-order the PC version at OffGamers at a discounted price today!
