Blizzard has released a new trailer for its latest Overwatch map, Junktown, which is out next week on September 20. The behind the scenes trailer takes a closer look at the story and discusses events that’ve occurred in the post apocalyptic scrapyard. The developers give an insight into what Junkertown is, who lives there, and why it’s going to be the ‘best thing ever’.
Junkertown is an escort map set in the dusty Australian Outback, built on top of a completely destroyed area following the rebellion of farmers against the robotic Omnics. The Omnic Crisis brought ruin to the Australian Outback, and all that’s left is Junkertown, the place that hermits, scavengers, brutes, and killers call home.
The Junkers now fight to the death in a huge Omnium, which has been repurposed as a gladiatorial arena. All of the battles are watched with interest by the mysterious and ruthless Queen of Junkertown, who was once a gladiator herself. Perhaps she’ll be playable as a future hero?
Overwatch is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
