Blizzard Entertainment has released a new update on Overwatch Public Test Realm that adds an all-new map, Malevento to the game.

Overwatch has been one of the most popular competitive shooters for years now, and the game is all set to receive a sequel as well. While it is named Overwatch 2 and is related to its predecessors, it’s a standalone title. The two games will be merged in some way, with players being able to play against each other.

Considering that it is out on PTR, only PC players will be able to try it for now. However, the map will be available on live servers on September 28, so others don’t have to wait for too long.
