I can’t believe I didn’t spot this on my first couple of watch throughs, but Sydney is actually featured in the cinematic trailer for Overwatch. Does this mean we can expect an Australian based map?
As you are no doubt already aware, Overwatch is set 60 years in the future, but it’s also set on planet earth, meaning that the game’s maps are based on real places. There’s one that is clearly Japanese, one that is clearly London, and one that draws inspiration from Egypt.
As you can see above, the cinematic trailer features the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House — surely that means we’ll have some sort of ‘Australian’ map in the game?
Apparently there’s still a lot to be revealed about Overwatch. New maps obviously, new characters with different abilities. So here’s hoping that an Australian map is part of those plans.
