Overwatch's Horizon Lunar Colony Map is Available to Play on PTR

Designed for Assault mode, the map is set on a science base stationed on the moon.


Following yesterday's tease, Blizzard announced that Overwatch's Horizon Lunar Colony map is available for testing on the game's Public Test Realm (PTR). Yesterday's Overwatch blog update divulged lore centering on a moon base where promising research was conducted, only for communications from the colony to cease abruptly.

The Horizon Lunar Colony is back up and running, but as an Assault map where "attacking and defending teams must return to the moon and battle for control of the colony’s facilities, all while they discover clues as to the fate of its previous inhabitants," per a release issued by Blizzard.
