Blizzard have revealed the first new map for their online multiplayer shooter Overwatch. Eichenwalde is a castle in the woods of Germany and seemingly is the former home of everyone’s favourite robot Bastion.

As well as being a brand new map for Overwatch players to enjoy, Eichenwalde will also come with a few new gameplay additions – the castle will feature ramparts that players can climb on, a drawbridge and a battering ram.

Eichenwalde will be playable at Gamescom and will be available in game this September.

Blizzard also announced that a second series of their popular Overwatch short films will begin this week, when they premiere a film focused on Bastion. The film will be streamed on Blizzard’s YouTube and Twitch channels at 5PM BST on Thursday.
