Overwatch heroes travel to the middle east in the newest map reveal

Blizzard took advantage of tonight’s Overwatch League event to showcase its upcoming Overwatch map, Petra, which is based on the Middle Eastern hidden city of Southern Jordan

Multiple videos of the new map leaked out earlier today, but the official video from Blizzard provides a closer look at the details. Petra is a hidden city carved into the mountains in the Middle East. Winding passageways snake around a large, open cavern—an arena where players will fight over control of an extra-large health pack. Petra is a mix of new and old, with vertical jump pads leading to crumbling bridges.

“A group of archaeologists have begun an excavation and preservation project among the ruins of Petra, a new Deathmatch map that puts all heroes on their own, facing off against one another until one hero scores enough eliminations to win the match,” Blizzard wrote.

Petra is based on an actual archaeological city located in southern Jordan. It’s a city that’s believed to have been settled in 9,000 BC and established as the capital of the Nabataean Kingdom in the fourth century BC. Overwatch’s new competitive Deathmatch mode will also be unlocked during the Overwatch Anniversary event. Of course, Petra will be playable in the ranked queue alongside Overwatch’s other dedicated Deathmatch map, Château Guillard. The new Deathmatch map will debut with the Overwatch Anniversary event on May 22 alongside a number of new Overwatch skins—11 in total to celebrate the game’s second birthday.
