The holidays may be coming to an end, but for Overwatch players, the fun will continue on thanks to a new update from Blizzard that brings an entirely new map to one of last year’s most popular and enjoyed shooters.
“There’s trouble in paradise as conflict breaks out in Oasis, a brand-new Control map set in one of the world’s most advanced cities, a shining jewel rising from the Arabian Desert.
Researchers and academics from around the region came together to found a city dedicated to scientific progress without restraints—a monument to human ingenuity and invention. The city and its inhabitants are governed by the Ministries, a collection of brilliant minds who possess many secrets that have attracted the interest of powerful organizations from around the world.”
Oasis introduces a new gameplay mechanic in Overwatch, in the form of jump pads, allowing players to boost around the map similarly to Quake or Halo games. As well as that, traffic will also be another distracting and punishing adversary during combat. Be sure to look left and right when crossing the roads!
