PAX East 2015: Blizzard Teases New Overwatch Battleground

Blizzard Entertainment teased via Twitter one of the maps which apparently might be playable at PAX East 2015. The new map is an abandoned Overwatch Observation Post located in the Iberian Peninsula (for the geography-challenged, that’s the large region that consists mostly of Spain, and Portugal).

The Atlantic Seaboard A.I. Summit March 6-8 (shown in the image below) is a reference to PAX East which will take place on the same date in Boston, Massachusetts.

I really never digged Team Fortress, but I have over 5,000 hours of experience in Half-Life 2: Deathmatch. Not an expert, but let’s say I’m quitely persistent. Usually end up winning top kills.

Taking a look at this battleground Blizzard teased us with, and some of the heroes’ abilities I can visualize potential strategies. It is very important to know the map, and the spots you can excel at.

Considering all the high-places in this map, I see good tactical points that Widowmaker, Pharah and Hanzo can exploit for a ranged snipe/attack at the top of the building. Lot of places where Tracer, Symmetra, Bastion and Tborjorn can place their devices to defend/attack as well. Very exciting.
