Video Exploration — New Overwatch Map: Ilios
The latest beta patch 27704 introduced a new control map to the roster of battleground maps. Ilios is located in Greece facing the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
It’s an amazing map to play in with many tactical spots to exploit to defend or attack control points.
- This new map is a paradise for Lucio and Winston — pushing players off the edge into the marina below, especially in Round 2 which has a huge hole in the middle of the control point.
- Widowmaker, Pharah, Genji, and Hanzo have many high-ground places to snipe from afar.
- Bastion, Torbjörn, Zenyatta, and even Junkrat can reach high-ground via stairs and bridges to sneak attacks from behind or flank from unexpected sides.
Round 1 and 2 of the map can be watched in this exploration video:
