Blizzard Entertainment unveiled the new Overwatch map Junkertown taking us back to Roadhog and Junkrat’s hometown in Australia. Junkertown is a new Escort map. The new Animated Short will be revealed on Wed August 23 at 6pm (Germany time) or 12pm EDT (New York Time).
The first video gives us an intro by the Queen of Junktown showcasing several areas of the map.
The second video is funny funny funny featuring Junkrat’s plan to infiltrate Junkertown incognito to steal the Queen’s riches, and escape within an inch of their lives after a boom. Roadhog doesn’t approve, and Junrkat iterates the plan a few times until Roadhog approves.
“Journey to Junkertown, a shut-down omnium now ruled by the Junker faction. Governed by the iron fist of the Queen, Junkertown has banned both Roadhog and Junkrat from entering its limits—but they’re doing their best to fire…er, find their way back in. Armed with an explosive payload piled high with plunder from the pair’s heists around the globe, one team must escort the payload to safety so the incendiary down-under duo can get back to business.”
Nestled in the remains of the Australian omnium, Junkertown was once “home sweet home” to everyone’s favorite criminal masterminds, Junkrat and Roadhog. Since being exiled by the Queen of Junkertown, this dangerous duo has burned, bombed, robbed, and killed their way across the world in search of one thing: TREASURE!
