The Horizon Lunar Colony Map in Overwatch is Getting a Remodel

Posted by April 22, 2018 Comment

One of the worst maps to ever play on in Overwatch is the Horizon Lunar Colony. It has been the bane of many a gamer’s existence since it was introduced last year and plays about as well as you would expect for a map with terrible corners and few hiding spots. According to keenly-eyed people who have been playing on the PTR servers, it appears the map has been getting some work done. The map has seen some changes in the way platforms and other areas have been constructed to make things easier to both infiltrate and defend so that the entire map doesn’t feel like a chore, it actually feels fun.

The changes have been taken down since the video below was shot because it was revealed on the forums by principal level designer David Adams that they’re not supposed to be seen yet, but as you can see, there are some significant changes once you get near the first point, including adding some stairs, changing out plants, and adding in faster routes for people to get where they need to go in short order. If these changes do become permanent, they will greatly change how a lot of people end up playing the map, including myself.
