Blizzard Entertainment has released a new preview video for Overwatch’s next Escort map Junkertown. Set in Australia’s Outback, Junkertown has been constructed in the ruins of a wrecked omnium. Check out the video below.
Junkertown is home to the Junkers of which Roadhog and Junkrat are members of. It’s also led by the mysterious but ruthless Queen who has some interesting Mad Max vibes to her. Along with chop shops and vaults full of riches, Junkertown is also home to the Scrapyard, an arena where combatants can battle it out (which leads us to believe that it will be a Deathmatch/Team Deathmatch variant in the future).
The map will be available to play at Gamescom on the show floor and while there’s no release date for the same, it will be “coming soon”. Blizzard will host its official Reveal Ceremony on August 23rd and will showcase other new content for its games, including a new animated short for Overwatch.
