The new Escort map will be playable on the Gamescom floor.
Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch received some interesting new details in the recent Gamescom preview video and it was confirmed that the next map for the hero shooter will be Junkertown. This is the home town for Roadhog and Junkrat, the Junkers and all-round criminals of the Overwatch universe.
The preview video also featured an animated look at Roadhog and Junkrat as they attempt to re-enter Junkertown after being kicked out. It’s pretty much Junkrat messing up yet again. Keep in mind that this is NOT the animated short that Blizzard will also be showcasing at Gamescom. That will debut on August 23rd at the Blizzard Reveal Ceremony.
No further information on Junkertown, when it would be available and what players will have to do has been made available. It is an Escort map though so one team will be attacking and the other defending as usual. The map will be playable at Gamescom for those in attendance so stay tuned for more information.
