Overwatch’s newest map, Busan is available for players today, Blizzard announced on Twitter early Tuesday afternoon.
Available today, teams can dive in and battle for control of three prominent locations within one map: Sanctuary, Downtown, and MEKA Base.
- Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, featuring an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture
- Clash in the bustling metropolis of Downtown; where players will fight across a busy PC bang, flashy karaoke bar, and central light rail station… but watch out for the train!
- Contest your position in the MEKA Base—home of South Korea’s frontline defence against the gwishin omnic attacks
The control map was revealed during Korea’s Overwatch Fan Festival late last month, where Jeff Kaplan wanted fans to understand the level of detail and thought that was put into representing the real-life city in the map. Blizzard carefully designed the map to ensure that it blended elements of historical and modern-day South Korea; just like the real Busan. The creators of the map even went so far as to find local musicians in Korea; to play traditional Korean instruments to provide the music for the map.
