Another Overwatch map has entered the fray. For those of you on PC who like to keep up with the PTR, the new Escort map Havana is now ready for testing. Try not to get that Camila song stuck in your head.
The map first debuted in the currently-running Storm Rising event as a playable PvE story mission in which Genji, Tracer, Mercy, and Winston have to tear through Talon forces to get to Maximilien, an omnic handling the organization's finances and a possible lead toward catching up with Doomfist.
As an Escort map, Havana involves babysitting a truck of rum barrels, battling through the Don Rumbotico distillery, and ducking into an imposing sea fort. It's quite the picturesque battleground.
Looking over the patch notes, there isn't much else to report. Blizzard has set the PvP map loose and touched up a few issues with text errors on posters and made it so the Yucca plants no longer trap players. There aren't any wild hero balancing changes or other tweaks in today's PTR update.
That said, the recent April 16 patch altered Junkrat's projectiles and improved Reaper's Shadow Step.
Junkrat - Frag Launcher
Reaper - Shadow Step
Symmetra - Teleporter
My favorite semi-useful but very appreciated feature in recent memory
You might've missed it, but initially, the company referred to Havana as an Assault map. That mislabeling sent some folks into a tizzy. To be clear, this is one-hundred percent an Escort map.
