Blizzard’s been busy at Gamescom this year. As promised, the studio delivered the Overwatch goods bright and early this morning for the Cologne audience: It revealed both the new Shooting Star animated short, which focuses on D.Va, and announced that Busan will be the game’s next new map.
“Now available on the PTR! Teams can dive in and battle for control of three prominent locations within one map: Sanctuary, Downtown, and MEKA Base. Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, featuring an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture Clash in the bustling metropolis of Downtown, where players will fight across a busy PC bang, flashy karaoke bar, and central light rail station… but watch out for the train! Contest your position in the MEKA Base—home of South Korea’s frontline defense against the gwishin omnic attacks.”
Of course, there’s more!
The Diablo franchise is getting a brand-new comic coming in November. We’re sure just it’s just a coincidence that it’s happening right after BlizzCon and whatever Diablo thing winds up happening there.
