Overwatch escorts players to the dusty and dangerous Junkertown

From the moon to Mad Max, Overwatch is keeping its playerbase on its toes as to the next destination for its endless battles. This week, Blizzard’s team shooter opened up the new Junkertown map for brutal carnage, giving the Aussies another reason to be proud (in addition to Yahoo Serious, dingo jokes, and pictures of abnormally large spiders posted on the internet).

Junkertown released today for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. According to the studio, it is “an escort map located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback. Constructed from the remains of a destroyed omnium, it’s now the home to a band of lawless scavengers known as the Junkers, led by their cutthroat Queen.”

Because this is Blizzard, there is nothing low-key about this map’s release. The studio commissioned a new 10-page comic book to help set the stage, and there are a trio of videos waiting for you after the break with tales, dev talk, and an overview of Junkertown.

The map is perfectly designed. So many escaping and nuking points, too many ambushes and sudden clashes. Blizzard has done a great job this time, both promotion and development. Additionally, the charm is added by the bracelets bundle I just received of Junkrat and Roadhog. Perfect delivery time!

It’s a fun map. No many choke points, and lots of little nooks and passageways for people to jump you from. Definitely makes a dynamic killing field.
