New hybrid Assault/Escort map now available on Public Test Server for PC players.
PC fans of Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch rejoice – Blizzard World is finally available on the Public Test Realm server thanks to a recent update. To access it, you’ll need to download the PTR build separately, selecting it from the regions available through the Battle.net launcher.
Blizzard World is an amusement park featuring properties like Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo (complete with some of the voice actors from those franchises). It’s a hybrid Assault/Escort map that moves from Stormwind to the Nexus, bypassing numerous other attractions along the way.
Though we’re not sure when exactly it will release for live servers, Jeff Kaplan noted at BlizzCon 2017 that early 2018 is the target. That will be around the same time that several Blizzard-themed skins release for numerous heroes like Zarya, Widowmaker and so on.
You can check out the full patch notes for the PTR update below which includes the ability to remove all AI opponents in a custom game lobby at once.
An option to “Remove All A.I.” in the custom game lobby can be accessed by Right Click > Remove All Bots
