Blizzard have just released some new footage of what their newest map, Eichenwalde will look like. It will have a castle based theme and will be an escort/assault map.
You can find the footage of the new map right here:
I think Eichenwalde looks very well done. I love the way every part of the map coincides with the general theme of it. Everything from the payload to the scenery. I like the way the payload knocks down the wall that’s blocking its path to the checkpoint, rather than just waiting for it to go down like the other maps. I also think Blizzard have done well with this, as back in Medieval times attackers would’ve done this to enemy castles.
Additionally, I think this map will best suit players that use either Genji or Widowmaker, as this map seems to have little holes that Widowmaker can hide in to pick people off, and it also looks like it has lots of opportunities to flank people as Genji.
I cannot wait to get my hands on the map, and I am also excited that Blizzard are actually adding a lot of new features into their game, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.
