Blizzard has announced a new map for its phenomenally successful shooter

A new Overwatch map is now available for players on all platforms. Oasis, which has been on the PC test realm for some weeks now, features the customary graphic slickness you associate with all Blizzard games, and Overwatch in particular.

Featuring a fearsome roadway with fast moving vehicles around one edge, Blizzard say the map has three control points and a number of jump pads. Let's see how the player base takes to it - and what ways they find to legitimately exploit its layout.

Blizzard have said the following of Oasis:

"Researchers and academics from around the region came together to found a city dedicated to scientific progress without restraints - a monument to human ingenuity and invention. The city and its inhabitants are governed by the Ministries, a collection of brilliant minds who possess many secrets that have attracted the interest of powerful organisations from around the world."

Yeah, whatever - let's fight!
