Overwatch inadvertently reveals lunar colony revamp for future patch


The relatively new(ish) Horizons Lunar Colony map in Overwatch is getting a revamp — but don’t tell anyone else because it’s supposed to be hush-hush. Or it should have been, except that a version of the rework slipped onto the public test realm to the surprise of players along side the new Rialto map.

Blizzard affirmed the lunar colony revamp as real: “Well that wasn’t supposed to happen but there you go. We have some changes that we are still working on and testing for the map so what you are seeing here may not be final. Also as an FYI, it won’t be released with the next patch and no ETA for when it will be released, as it is still a rework in progress.”

These patches aren’t all the Overwatch dev team is up to these days. When it caught wind of one player who had lost her father and had retreated into the game in her grief, the team sent her a giant 15-pound goodie box full of Overwatch as consolation.

Pft, nice. At least we get to see what changes they’re planning to make.


I remember reading about that goodie box some weeks ago on Reddit. Super cool of Blizzard to do something like that. Here’s hoping people don’t abuse this generosity….

I’m more excited about the new map (Venice) coming out soon. It looks gorgeous based on some short clips i’ve seen.
