Blizzard Releases New Eichenwalde Map Preview Video for Overwatch
At Gamescom Blizzard revealed a new map coming to Overwatch called Eichenwalde, which is designed for Assault and Escort types of matches. The official description of the new map is as follows:
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.
On this map, one team must escort a battering ram to Eichenwalde Castle to reclaim Balderich’s remains from their current resting place, while the opposing team does everything in its power to thwart the keep from being breached.
A release date hasn’t been announced, but the map is supposedly “coming soon,” so head on up above to see what it looks like.
