Although the new heroes and game modes in Overwatch 2 are the main attractions, maps also play a significant role in the gameplay. The original Overwatch’s maps were a special fusion of traditional and futuristic, with vivid scenery, winding roads, and, of course, a ton of secret passages.
Players never really knew when a new place would arrive in their game because the game acquired maps on an inconsistent basis.
That is changing with Overwatch 2. New maps will be released considerably more frequently as a result of the game’s new seasonal structure, so players will always know when the next location is coming.
The development team will release a new map every other season when Overwatch 2 debuts on Oct. 4. Players will receive a new hero during the seasons where no new map is released.
Here is all the information you require on the upcoming Overwatch 2 map release.
New map: Esperanca
This lovely seaside map is set in the Portuguese city of Esperança. Like every map in the first game, every map in Overwatch 2 is based on a real-world locale.
Esperança is designed for Push, the game’s brand-new level in which two teams compete to escort a robot into the spawn of the other side. The winning squad is the one that advances the farthest.
Esperança will be accessible on October 4 when Overwatch 2’s PvP enters early access. In contrast to new heroes, which players must unlock by paying for the game’s premium battle pass or progressing to tier 55 of the free battle pass, all players will immediately have access to new maps after they are released.
What Maps Will Be Next?
Regarding the next new map for Overwatch 2, not much is known. The next new map will be released in conjunction with the beginning of season three, but the devs haven’t provided any clue on what will come after Esperança.
Future heroes, maps, and modes will all be released by Blizzard, thus it’s feasible that the next map will concentrate on a mode that doesn’t even exist yet. That leaves the question open where will the heroes of Overwatch go next?
If you liked watching professional Overwatch competition, you will probably enjoy the new version as well. It will be interesting to see how quickly can the players adjust to the massive changes made by the Blizzard.
