OVERWATCH Gets a New Map, Oasis is Now Live


When Blizzard promised a new Overwatch map shortly after the beginning of the year, they weren’t kidding.  Today the patch that removes Winter Wonderland is also dropping a new map into the rotation, Oasis.  A control point map with jump pads and traffic that will kill you if you don’t get out of the way.

Oasis may be just a map, and it may not have any relation to any character (that we know of) but it does expand the world and build on the story of Overwatch.  Oasis is a city that sits in the middle of the Arabian Desert.  Hailed as one of the most advanced cities in the world, it was conceived and built by a team of scientists and researches dedicated to scientific progress without restraints.  The city and its inhabitants are governed by the Ministries, a collection of brilliant minds who possess secrets that have attracted the interest of powerful organizations from around the world.

Sounds like Mercy may have something to do with this city considering she is on the leading edge of biotic tech and literally brings people back from the dead.  Or almost dead.  She would probably like a research city with little to no oversight.

The patch is now live across all platforms, Oasis is the only item in the patch.
