Overwatch in-game screenshot from the new Busan map

With gamescom and the South Korean fan event both happening at the same time, Blizzard has chosen this opportunity to release a brand new cinematic trailer starring D.Va. While it's not exactly my favorite short in terms of storytelling, it sure does paint an interesting picture of Busan in the future, which is why I'm glad to say that Blizzard has now gone a step further and released Busan as a brand new Control (King of the Hill) map!

So if you're interested in exploring the new map and seeing what sort of environmental hazards Lucio and Roadhog will be throwing you into, simply change your region to the PTR and you'll be able to play after a bit of a download. On the other hand, if you just want a little sneak peek at the map itself, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. Have a gander:

Besides Busan, this PTR update has also brought with it some much needed bug fixes. Reinhardt's Earthshatter has received numerous tweaks in order to make it more reliable and less frustrating for both him and his enemies, Hammond's double damage bug has been corrected (though there is another one out there), Winston's leap now once again requires precise aim in order to secure that juicy 50 damage burst, and the list goes on. You can find all of the changes over at the official forums.

Have fun, and do try not to get booped into the train!
