Overwatch Patch Brings New Map and Weekly Brawls

The beta for Blizzard’s upcoming multiplayer shooter Overwatch has recently received a new update, featuring character adjustments and a whole new gameplay mode named Weekly Brawl, as well as an Escort Map named ‘Route 66’ (via. GameSpot).

Route 66, is described in the update notes as a hark back to a faded time.

“The gas stations, roadside shops, and cafes have gone into disuse, and the fabled Deadlock Gorge is mostly seen from the comfort of transcontinental train cars.” says Blizzard’s description,  “But amid the fading monuments of that earlier era, the outlaws of the Deadlock Gang are planning their biggest heist yet.”

The Weekly Brawl mode is expectantly based on the battle events of Hearthstone, and is described by Blizzard as a “fun, alternative way to play Overwatch.” 

According to Blizzard in Overwatch patch notes, Weekly Brawls will feature “a set of unique (and sometimes crazy) rules from our Custom Game System.” 

“Each week, we’ll rotate in a different Weekly Brawl featuring a set of unique (and sometimes crazy) rules from our Custom Game system.” Blizzard said in the patch notes on the Overwatch forum“For example: In one Weekly Brawl, you’ll only be able to play Soldier: 76, while in another Weekly Brawl, a random hero will be selected for you each time you respawn.”

Weekly Brawls will initially be set to rotate once per day, as opposed to once per week, in order to test the mode’s efficacy.

Overwatch is set for release on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC on May 24.

For a more comprehensive look at the update’s added and updated features, you can check out the full update notes on the Overwatch forum.
