"Located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback", the home of Junkrat and Roadhog - Junkertown - is the next Escort Map to become part of regular Overwatch play. Now live in the latest update on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Junkertown represents a slice of that good old post-apocalyptic Australia that we love. Also, the update brings big changes to D.Va and Mercy in the form of revamped abilities.
Which are pretty big, and definitely game changing.
Micro Missiles (New Ability)
D.Va fires a barrage of small rockets that detonate on impact, dealing damage in a limited radius around each explosion. These can be fired while D.Va is using any other ability or firing her Fusion Cannons
Defense Matrix's resource meter will now deplete twice as quickly
Energy regeneration per second has been increased to 12.5% (formerly 10%)
Fusion Cannons can now be fired while flying
Resurrect (Formerly Mercy's Ultimate ability)
Ability now targets a single player, instead of every player within a radius
Radius reduced to 5 meters
Ability cooldown is 30 seconds
Mercy is no longer granted invulnerability while Resurrect is active
Valkyrie (New Ultimate Ability)
Valkyrie unleashes the full power of Mercy’s Valkyrie suit, enhancing her weapons and abilities for 20 seconds
Caduceus Staff: Mercy's healing and damage boost beams now affect all allies near the targeted teammate, and the staff's effective range has been extended
Caduceus Blaster: Now has infinite ammo and increased projectile speed
Guardian Angel: Increased range and movement speed
Resurrect: Cooldown is instantly reset when Valkyrie is activated and reduced to 10s after the initial cast
Hover: Mercy gains the ability to fly freely, at increased movement speed
Regeneration (Passive): No longer interrupted when Mercy takes damage
Oh, and to celebrate the arrival of Australia to Overwatch, here's the cool animated short that came alongside Junkertown's announcement at Gamescom.
