Junkertown is the newest Overwatch map

Overwatch is getting a new map soon: Junkertown, the junktacular Australian hometown of the junker Junkrat.

“Junkertown is an Escort map located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback,” reads the map’s description. “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.”

Junktown looks to be a departure from the otherwise pristine set of facilities and idyllic seaside ruins that Overwatch’s battles currently take place. Check out some highlights in the map preview above, or for some backstory on the map objective, take a look at the newest Overwatch animated short below:

  • Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not
    very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.

    Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers http://portelizabethlife.co.za/author/gerard43z4/

    • The only advise i can think to give where i started was going with as reputable provider for hosting your blog like Go Daddy or 1&1 they are both reasonably priced per month etc and maybe hosting a wordpress to create your blog its reasonably straight forward and easy to learn just select your theme and installing add ons for everything imaginable to make your blog stand out.
      hope this helps.
