Junkertown is also the home of Junkrat and Roadhog!
Blizzard announced the addition of Junkertown to Overwatch today at Gamescom. Set in Australia, Junkertown is also home to the loony duo – Junkrat and Roadhog. Players will be escorting their payload in the outback, through the place where the crazies hail from.
As of now, there’s no set release date revealed yet. However, attendees of Gamescom 2017 will get a chance to try out Junkertown this week in Cologne, Germany. This probably means it isn’t too far away from a server release. Check you a video of the new map below.
Junkertown is an Escort map located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback. Constructed from the remains of a destroyed omnium, it’s now the home to a band of lawless scavengers known as the Junkers, led by their cutthroat Queen. When they aren’t pillaging the omnium’s skeleton for anything of value, the Junkers blow off steam in the Scrapyard—a massive gladiatorial arena whose combatants fight for glory, riches…and to survive.
Today at Gamescom, Junkrat, and Roadhog were the ones who did the reveal to the new map in their animated shorts – The Plan. Check out the video below. If you enjoyed the shorts, Blizzard has two more plan for release this Wednesday on August 23.
