For some of us the Petra location will always and forever be tied to the Indiana Jones trilogy, in that The Last Crusade's final act takes place in and around the location. "Only the penitent man shall pass." But hey, now we can associate it with Overwatch too with Petra being added as a deathmatch map.
And thanks to the wonderful art and detail, it looks incredible.
A group of archaeologists have begun an excavation and preservation project among the ruins of Petra, a new Deathmatch map that puts all heroes on their own, facing off against one another until one hero scores enough eliminations to win the match.
Take in Petra’s majestic views, from high vistas to twisting passageways and deep caverns. Travel along deadly cliffs, but be careful to not fall off! A dilapidated bridge stretches across the map, and the ground underneath it can crumble away to reveal a lethal pit. Hopping on a green jump pad will boost you up to Petra’s higher levels and unlock new strategic possibilities for you...
Don't remember Indy having to deal with jump-pads, but here's hoping we get a Holy Grail Easter Egg in there somewhere. No release date has been set, but Petra is "coming soon".
