Blizzard reveals upcoming Eichenwalde map for Overwatch

Overwatch fans rejoice! The competitive shooter will soon get a new map, as revealed by Blizzard at Gamescom.

The new map is an Assault/Escort hybrid (like King’s Row, Numbani, and Hollywood) and the attackers will have to take control of a battering ram before escorting it to break Castle Eichenwalde’s walls, while the defenders do everything in their power to prevent this from happening.

The site of one of the most famous battles during the Omnic Crisis, it was here that the leader of the Crusaders, Balderich von Alder, and a handful of his best soldiers made a last stand against an advancing automaton army. Outnumbered and outgunned, they were ultimately slain during the resulting combat. However, thanks to their valiant efforts, the German military was able to push back the omnic offensive and win the fight.
