Overwatch has just released their newest map, Oasis, to the PTR, and there’s some pretty unique features to this one. For one, cars drive around the edge of one of the three areas in Oasis. Can they kill you? Why yes, yes they can.
Another cool feature of the new map is a jump pad, which propels characters high in the air when they jump on the circle. That feature is really nice and will give some upward mobility to the characters.
Oasis looks like a control-type map, and it has three different areas, all of which are very urban. The design of the maps are beautiful and clean. One of the maps looks like it takes place in a university, and as this walk-through shows us, there’s even a lecture hall with some stuff written on the blackboard that might be a fun Easter Egg for players.
Still to come is a completely redesigned Symmetra, who will now have two ultimate abilities, a new ability called the Photon Barrier, and will have the range of her primary weapon tweaked. She will also be able to stock six turrets at once.
