Overwatch New Assault Map Paris Goes Live On The PTR

Blizzard Entertainment

Blizzard Entertainment "Echo first appeared in the"Reunion animated short that debuted at Blizz Con 2018

Blizzard has released the newest map for Overwatch, though it's not available for all players yet.

Paris is a two-point assault map in the vein of Temple of Anubis and Hanamura, rather a hybrid payload/capture, control or a direct payload map.

Not only was the map's arrival sudden and rather unexpected, but in winding through the map's cobbled streets and paved walkways, police station and bakery, players have discovered a cute Easter egg: a handful of interactive pianos whose individual (and seemingly invulnerable) keys play notes when shot. I despise the two-point capture maps due to how many times you usually have to fight the respawning defense. Depending on what side of the fence you are put on, you'll be tasked with either attacking or defending points on the map.

Barca received a penalty of their own soon after when Nelson Semedo was adjudged to have been brought down by Antonio Latorre. But Atletico Madrid , now six points behind, can close the gap when they take on Real Betis on Sunday.

The Overwatch Paris map is Assault based. And typically, one of these points is much easier to capture than the other, turning 2CP matches into either a steamroll or a tense slog. Players nearby Cabaret Luna will be graced with the "velvety alto voice of the preeminent diva Luna", after which players can "step outside" and seize victory nearby the city's artisanal shops. However, maps typically enjoy a good month or so on the test servers before they are rolled out to the public. While no specific date was mentioned just yet for the map's full release on consoles and PC, Blizzard said that it is "coming soon", so we can probably see it within the next few weeks. "Once you establish dominance over your adversaries, make your way to Maison Marat and deliver the coup-de-grace", the company tells players who have access to the new offering.

The Paris map features spots reminiscent of the romantic European city.
