New Map Kanezaka

The team took to Twitter for the announcement of their latest map.

Kanezaka is the next Free-For-All, Deathmatch map coming to Overwatch.

In terms of lore, Kanezaka is located right next to Hanamura.


My favourite feature of the map is a cat cafe, the temptation to sit there all game is overwhelming.

It's currently available through the PTR mode (public test realm).

You can access it by going to your Battle.net launcher selecting Overwatch then in the drop-down menu select PTR.

Check out the Twitter announcement below.

Through the PTR patch notes, the map is described:


"Fight for your life in a thrilling battlefield of alleyways, ancient stone, towering steel, and cat cafes. Shatter your enemy's dreams in the pottery shop, deliver beatdowns in the Tora no Sumika nightclub, or rise above the competition in the tower at the center of the city."
