Overwatch is heading to Korea in new Busan map

Blizzard have revealed details about the next new map coming to Overwatch, and it takes us to the second-largest city in South Korea – Busan.

The map—named Busan (duh)—will be a Control map which means that it will take place across three different locations as detailed in Blizzards trailer for the map during Korea Fanfest. The description for the trailer reads:

“Travel to Busan, South Korea and battle for control across three distinct locales within one map: Sanctuary, Downtown, and MEKA Base. Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, surrounded by 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 (just watch out for the train). Contest for position in MEKA Base–home of South Korea’s frontline defense against the gwishin omnic attacks: D.Va and the rest of the MEKA squad. Teams must fight to hold each of the three stages to establish complete control of the city that refuses to surrender its way of life to any threat.” Check out the trailer below.

If you hadn’t guessed, the map is based around D.Va and it’s announcement coincides with the release of another excellent Overwatch animated short that is also themed around D.Va; the 8-minute long video shows D.Va heroically defending her country from an Omnic assault. You can check it out below.

The Busan map is live on the PTR now, and is expected to go live on the full game in the coming months.
