Overwatch Adds A New Map, Available To Play Now

Blizzard have added a new map, Oasis, to the game after a new update released today.

The map has been part of the public test server for over a month, and is now available as part of a free update on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Windows. Oasis is set in the Arabian Desert, and focuses on 3 control points which players must fight over in order to win the map.

Blizzard officially stated:

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.
