If you’ve been playing Overwatch for a while now and you’re getting a little tired of the current maps that are being offered in the game, you might be interested to learn that Blizzard has recently announced during Gamescom 2017 that they’ll be adding a new map to the game in the form of “Junkertown”.


According to the description of the map, “Nestled in the remains of the Australian omnium, Junkertown was once “home sweet home” to everyone’s favorite criminal masterminds, Junkrat and Roadhog. Since being exiled by the Queen of Junkertown, this dangerous duo has burned, bombed, robbed, and killed their way across the world in search of one thing: TREASURE!”

“Junkertown is an Escort map located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback. Constructed from the remains of a destroyed omnium, it’s now the home to a band of lawless scavengers known as the Junkers, led by their cutthroat Queen. When they aren’t pillaging the omnium’s skeleton for anything of value, the Junkers blow off steam in the Scrapyard—a massive gladiatorial arena whose combatants fight for glory, riches…and to survive.”

The map is said to be “coming soon” but there was no specific dates mentioned, but it will most likely arrive on the PTR first, so gamers who want to check it out should sign up to be part of the PTR if they want an early look at it when it is eventually released. In the meantime you can check out the videos above and below for more details about what to expect from it.
