Overwatch’s fight for the future continues in Roadhog and Junkrat’s home country, Australia, with the thieves’ hideout Junkertown map coming soon to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The animated short, “Junkertown: The Plan,” follows the exiled duo’s attempted delivery of an explosive-rigged payload to Junkertown’s leader, the Queen.

In-game footage was showcased of the new Escort map, featuring the scrapyard’s various locations like a tattoo shop, music venue, treasure stash and an arena.
Junkertown’s Queen narrates the map trailer, addressing her “wretched scum” and their survival difficulties.
“It’s time to face the facts. The end of the world has come and gone,” she said. “Your past lives are a dream. It’s time you woke up.”
The Queen then talks about Junkertown as a new world built after the events of the Omnic Crisis and delivers a welcome message for the town’s new residents.
“No rules, no mercy, only the strong survive,” the voice continued. “This is your Queen, welcome to the apocalypse. Welcome to Junkertown.”
The following is the official description of the map, which accompanies the video.
Junkertown is an Escort map located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback. Constructed from the remains of a destroyed omnium, it’s now the home to a band of lawless scavengers known as the Junkers, led by their cutthroat Queen. When they aren’t pillaging the omnium’s skeleton for anything of value, the Junkers blow off steam in the Scrapyard—a massive gladiatorial arena whose combatants fight for glory, riches…and to survive.
Overwatch‘s other incoming addition is Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes, which were announced on Aug. 10. Additionally, a Deathmatch map based on Widowmaker’s estate, Chateau Guillard, will release alongside the modes.
Blizzard did not reveal a release date for either map or Deathmatch modes.
