Blizzard has released a new update to the Overwatch PTR and it includes a new map.
Havana, a new escort map, has been added to the PTR for players to try out, practice, and provide feedback on. It was initially released as part of the PvE mission in the Overwatch Storm Rising Archives, but will now be added as a standard and competitive map.
Blizzard describes it as “a vibrant, historic port city where the winds of change blow strong, is home to Overwatch’s newest Escort map!”
You can read the full patch notes and introduction to the map below:
Overwatch PTR Patch Notes – April 18, 2019
A new Overwatch patch is in development and now available for testing! To share your feedback or report any issues, please post in the PTR Feedback 8 or PTR Bug Report 1 forums.
Please note that the below patch notes only include changes currently available for testing on the PTR. While many of these changes may also be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a future patch, the PTR is PC-only and only reflects changes coming specifically to that platform.
New Map: Havana
Havana, a vibrant, historic port city where the winds of change blow strong, is home to Overwatch’s newest Escort map!
Begin your trip at the Taller de Sebastián, where the classic cars that line Havana’s bustling streets stop for refueling and repair. Escort a truck of rum barrels on the sun-drenched cobblestone roads, fighting off those who try to stop you. As you make your way, duck into a colorful building to escape enemy fire and savor the impressive flavors of Havana at La Cocina de Miranda or Café del Sol. Battle your opponents through the alleys until you reach the Don Rumbotico rum distillery, a once little-known local treasure that has recently earned international acclaim. Finally, guide the jalopy through the distillery to its destination at the Havana Sea Fort, a historical landmark recently purchased by an anonymous financial group and closed to the public.
- Fixed text errors on Taller de Sebastián and several posters
- Fixed a bug where players would slide along the bottom of the pillars and the wall corners on the second floor of La Euforia
- Fixed an issue where players could become stuck on the Yucca plants
