To the Moon (on the PTR, that is).
Pretty much out of nowhere, Blizzard Entertainment has released its newest map for Overwatch on its Public Test Realm server for PC. The Horizon Lunar Colony is essentially a moonbase where Winston originated from. A new map preview video has been released showcasing the interiors with Winston providing some background on what happened.
Horizon Lunar Colony is an Assault map, which means there will be two checkpoints for players to capture/defend. Blizzard hasn’t really discussed where the apes that took over the Colony have gone but it’s probably best to see it for yourself.
It’s also worth noting that the map could remain in the PTR for some time while Blizzard works out the bugs. If you’re a PC player, simply opt into the PTR version (which needs a separate client download) from the region tab in the Blizzard app.
