New maps

New maps were added for the game modes 1×1 and 3×3. To win in these modes, you just need to destroy all the opponents.

Necropolis

Ana Amari has in the necropolis not only her secret shelter but also an advanced observation post. A lot of peaks for observation, narrow alleys for sudden attacks, all this was created only for one purpose – to determine the best of you. Only┬ádo not fall into the pit.

Castillo

Castillo is an old port in Dorado Bay, it is here that the Calaveras Bar is located. This bar is famous for its visitors, and they can not be called as good guys. Also nearby is the base of the famous group of Los Muertos and the refuge of Sombra. Use the vertical advantages of this map if you want to defeat the opponent.

Black forest

Not far from Eichenwalde is a long-abandoned battlefield, which is the last refuge for a lot of Bastion type omnics. But today this quiet place will again be lit up by flashes of gunfire and poisoned by spilled blood. Destroy enemies while they are moving along the trails from the castle to the forest and use wooden balconies to move among the map.

Overwatch: New event info was leaked

Through the X-box live interface leaked the first picture of the new skins for Overwatch’s heroes that were created for the new event. As we suppose before this event will be take base from from the e-comix “Uprising”, and new skins will receive such heroes as Reinhardt, Mercy, Tracer and Torbjorn.

Overwatch new event

New event as we think will be chained with the Overwatch’s lore and will have some PvE ingame mod. As we can see the plot of this event will be tied with the Omnic terroristic group named as “Zero sector”. And our heroes will confront them at the Kings Row.

By the way, if you still do not read this comix, then we highly recommend to read it. You can find Uprising comix at the official Overwatch’s website. Or at this link.
