Overwatch Announces New Paris Assault Map
Blizzard has just announced a new Assault map for Overwatch taking place in the city of love Paris, France. Though there’s likely a lot less love and a lot more storming areas for objectives. That’s still pretty Parisian, historically speaking.
Chance encounters lead to novel beginnings.

The map is now live on the Playable Test Realm, so if you’re a part of that, you can jump right in and check it out. For everyone who wants to wait for the full release, though, here’s a quick look at what the new map looks like.
Blizzard emphasizes Paris’ narrow streets and corridors in the new level, but also encourages players to check out Paris’ most iconic sights and sounds within the Overwatch world. You can hit up the cabaret and see the talented Luna perform, stop at patisseries and check out the delicious goods, or even drop in at a fancy gala. Of course, you still have your objectives, so don’t get too distracted.
The map will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
