Overwatch won our Game of The Year for 2016 and will be supported well into this new year. I cannot wait. Here is the official rundown for the new map:

There’s trouble in paradise as conflict breaks out in Oasis, a brand-new Control map set in one of the world’s most advanced cities, a shining jewel rising from the Arabian Desert.

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 organizations from around the world.

On this map, teams will need to dodge vehicles and utilize jump pads to capture and defend three unique control points.
