Overwatch players will be pleased to know that the new Assault/Escort hybrid map Eichenwalde, has now been made available to download and play and offers an abandoned village on the outskirts of Stuttgart, Germany to battle it out.
Check out the preview trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the new Overwatch Eichenwalde map on which a handful of soldiers made their last stand against the advancing automaton army.
The site of one of the most famous battles during the Omnic Crisis, it was here that the leader of the Crusaders, Balderich von Adler, and a handful of his best soldiers made a last stand against an advancing automaton army. Outnumbered and outgunned, they were ultimately slain during the resulting combat. However, thanks to their valiant efforts, the German military was able to push back the omnic offensive and win the fight.
On this map, one team must escort a battering ram to Eichenwalde Castle to reclaim Balderich’s remains from their current resting place, while the opposing team does everything in its power to thwart the keep from being breached.
