Overwatch Reveals More Details on Next Event and a New Map

Just 48 hours before the next Lunar event kicks off in Overwatch, Jeff Kaplan took to YouTube to update fans about the next additions to the game, which will include a brand new map and capture the flag options. First off, you’re getting a brand new map to fight on called Ayutthaya which will put you on a futuristic version of Thailand. The map was specifically built for a brand new addition to the game in Capture The Flag. This is actually kind of big because CTF is probably one of the least-played modes of the game as everyone has found themselves gravitating more to death match, quick play, and competitive.

On top of that, there will be a competitive season of CTF this summer, same is how we get one for Lucio Ball every summer. We also find out a little bit more on the new lunar skins, as they will be adding 50 new items across the board for every character, as well as unlocking all of last year’s skins so you can purchase them at half the cost they were last year. So if you absolutely need Mei in her finest attire, this is your chance to get it again at a bargain.
