Overwatch's new map will fly us to the moon


Did someone say peanut butter?

The next content update for Overwatch is a new Assault map, Horizon Lunar Colony, and it's playable starting today on the PC version's Public Test Realm. This Winston-narrated trailer will fill you in.

"Built as a first step towards humanity's renewed exploration of space, the colony’s goal was to examine the effects of prolonged extraterrestrial habitation—on human and ape alike. The scientists’ research proved incredibly promising...until, suddenly, all contact and communications with the base were lost.

Now, many years later, attacking and defending teams must return to the moon and battle for control of the colony's facilities, all while they discover clues as to the fate of its previous inhabitants."

I'm dying to see what the other missing specimen, Hammond, looks like. I hope he's cute.
