The New Overwatch Map, Horizon Lunar Colony, is Now Playable On the PTR


The Overwatch tease from yesterday has materialized on the PTR: the Horizon Lunar Colony map.

It’s been one day since Blizzard teased some new Overwatch content, and we already know what that new content is – the Horizon Lunar Colony map.

The new map is “an Assault map set in a scientific base on the moon.” Here’s a video preview (narrated by Winston) and the official description:

“Built as a first step towards humanity’s renewed exploration of space, the Horizon Lunar Colony’s goal was to examine the effects of prolonged extraterrestrial habitation-on human and ape alike. The scientists’ research proved incredibly promising…until, suddenly, all contact and communications with the base were lost.”

As usual for PTR content, there’s no word on when it might make its way to the full game. If you want to check out the new map, you’ll need to head over to the PTR. You can find instructions on how to do that, as well as the full patch notes for the latest PTR update, over on the Overwatch blog.
