And it's an Assault map, hooray! After teasing something moon related a few days ago comes the official reveal of a new map coming to Overwatch -- Horizon Lunar Colony. And yes, taking place on the moon means that for certain sections it will feature low gravity. That's not to say that characters will die from the lack of, you know, atmosphere it's just to add a new flavour -- gravity! A feature that is also making its way to the Custom Game browser.
Here's a quick overview of the new map, providing some backstory on Winston and the colony.
Built as a first step towards humanity's renewed exploration of space, the Horizon Lunar Colony’s goal was to examine the effects of prolonged extraterrestrial habitation—on human and ape alike. The scientists’ research proved incredibly promising...until, suddenly, all contact and communications with the base were lost.
The new map, alongside other changes, is currently playable on the PTR. Head here for the full Patch Notes.
