Overwatch to Receive New Maps & Arcade Game Mode

Popular hero shooter Overwatch is soon set to receive new game maps alongside the addition of an all-new mode, Arcade.

As had been widely expected, Blizzard kicked off its BlizzCon 2016 expo earlier today in California with the official unveiling of Overwatch’s latest hero, Sombra. That wasn’t all the studio had up its sleeve, however, as it also surprisingly announced that two new maps, Oasis and Eco Point: Antarctica would shortly be available via the game’s public test realm (PTR) servers.

Taking to the stage at the Anaheim Convention Center, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime also unveiled the game’s Arcade mode, which will bring with it a host of unique games, rulesets, and maps – such as the aforementioned Mei-centric Eco Point. Some of these Arcade match-ups will include one-versus-one and three-versus-three arena combat, Morhaime confirmed.

Players can get their first glimpse at the locations in the screenshots below, ahead of them hitting Overwatch’s PTR on PC next week.
