New Overwatch Map Revealed: Eichenwalde

The Assault/Escort hybrid map takes place in a German castle and is coming soon.

At Gamescom today, Blizzard revealed the first new post-launch map coming to Overwatch, titled "Eichenwalde." It is a hybrid Assault/Escort map like King's Row and Numbani, where the first point must be captured before escorting a payload to the final point. 



The esports implications for this map are big, because King's Row is quite a popular pick in competitive play and the hopes are that this map will be as well. The payload on this map appears to be a battering ram that, once captured, is used to break down the door to a massive castle where a suit of armor awaits, sitting in a throne at the end. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
