Explore The New Paris Map In The Overwatch PTR
Paris, the famed City of Lights and one of the most romantic cities in the world. A city where you can brush up on art and history, gorge yourself on delectable French cuisine, or blast each other to kingdom come. Say what now? Overwatch players can now roam the narrow, winding streets of Paris, take cover in quaint Parisian shops, and chase enemies around iconic city locations including, of course, the Eiffel Tower.
“Begin your journey at the Cabaret Luna, where the velvety alto voice of preeminent diva Luna charms movie stars, revolutionaries, locals, and tourists alike. After the encore, step outside to see the sights and seize victory. Artisanal shops line the streets as you approach the first point, so duck in to sample a macaron or escape enemy fire. Battle through alleys and corridors before clashing with your foes on the banks of the Seine. Once you establish dominance over your adversaries, make your way to Maison Marat and deliver the coup-de-grâce.”
The new Paris assault map is now live on the PTR along with a few other game updates including changes to the order in which non-recoverable and recoverable shields, armor, and health are consumed when taking damage. “Previously, it was possible for heroes’ recoverable shields to be prioritized for damage and regenerate, allowing their non-recoverable armor to persist,” says Blizzard. “With the order adjustment, heroes who have been granted non-recoverable armor or shields will now consume those resources before recoverable health, armor, or shields.”
The PTR update also includes hero tweaks and plenty of bug fixes. You can check out the full list of changes on the official patch notes.
