Overwatch's newest map, Oasis, is now on live servers.
As you'll recall, Oasis includes the much talked about Jumppads, which could be featured in more maps if they are successful here. The map is King of the Hill (or Control, whichever nomenclature you prefer), and features environmental hazards in the form of traffic that can kill you.
Here's Blizzard's description:
There's trouble in paradise as conflict breaks out in Oasis, a brand-new Control map set in one of the world's most advanced cities, a shining jewel rising from the Arabian Desert.
Researchers and academics from around the region came together to found a city dedicated to scientific progress without restraints—a monument to human ingenuity and invention. The city and its inhabitants are governed by the Ministries, a collection of brilliant minds who possess many secrets that have attracted the interest of powerful organizations from around the world.
On this map, teams will need to dodge vehicles and utilize jump pads to capture and defend three unique control points.
Many in the competitive community are referring to this map as the new Ilios, so if you're interested in Overwatch esports, you should get yourself familiar.
Go try it out and let us know what your favorite part is.
