Looks like Blizzard is getting ready to release Eichenwalde, the new Overwatch map announced at Gamescom. The game’s development team has just updated the Public Test Realm, letting players test their new creation at their leisure.
Usually, new features last about a week in the PTR before being brought to the live version of the game, so we hope to see Eichenwalde’s full release next week.
Gamers interested in checking out the new map (and upcoming buffs and nerfs) can download the Overwatch PTR from the drop down menu that lets players select regions in the Battle.net client.
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.
