Overwatch PTR 1.15 – Junkertown Preview
The latest Overwatch PTR 1.15 (39427) patch has introduced the new escort map announced at GamesCom 2017. Junkertown is available for testing today August 29 (evening).
Junkertown has three areas: the external town outside the Junkertown where the payload starts, the outdoor town within the walls of Junkertown, and the payload destination in the scrapyard arena (indoor).
Attackers start at Roadhog’s house where you find his bed, the machinery used to build his healing gas cans, and his iconic motorcycle. In addition, there is a chalkboard detailing the full plan shown in the Junkertown: The Plan cinematic.
Defense starts in the treasure vault behind the Queen’s throne within the Scrapyard Arena. There is a mobile platform that can be used as a bridge to reach a ledge or two balconies in the second floor. Plenty of tunnels and stairs to flank.
One of the posters show how the Queen of Junkertown looks like. There are a few easter eggs as well such as a poster showing a battle between a gnome and a goblin in mechanical suits.
