Overwatch Busan Map Now on PTR and New D.Va Animated Short is Live

Overwatch Busan Map Now on PTR and New D.Va Animated Short is Live

The new map features three separate locations which teams must fight for control of.

Blizzard has revealed a brand new animated short, and a new control map for Overwatch. The animated short is called “Shooting Star”, and focuses on everyone’s favorite pro-gamer D.Va.

The Busan Map is now available on PTR, and sees teams fighting for control over three prominent areas: Sanctuary, Downtown, and MEKA Base. Here’s all of the key info:

  • Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, featuring an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture
  • Clash in the bustling metropolis of Downtown, where players will fight across a busy PC bang, flashy karaoke bar, and central light rail station… but watch out for the train!
  • Contest your position in the MEKA Base—home of South Korea’s frontline defense against the gwishin omnic attacks

Shooting Star sees D.Va preparing for the next Omnic attack, something which causes the MEKA squad to wonder if she should be focusing her efforts elsewhere. It runs around 7 minutes long, and is a must watch for any self respecting D.Va fan. You can check out Shooting Star below:

It’ll be a little while before the new Busan map comes to general Overwatch servers, so if you want to try it out for yourself then head over to the “REGION/ACCOUNT” menu and install the PTR.
