Earlier this week, Blizzard announced evolving plans for the upcoming Overwatch Anniversary event. This includes a new Deathmatch map called Petra. On Saturday, Blizzard revealed Petra for the first time.

Petra takes place along a dilapidated temple outside the desert cliffs. There are some noteworthy landmarks, like the temple interior, an outside tent, and a large health pack along the temple's center.

Petra is set to release early next week as part of the Overwatch Anniversary 2018 event, which will include an all-new free-for-all competitive Deathmatch season. The event will run from May 22 through June 11. Those looking to get a first look at this map can do so whether they own Overwatch or not, since Blizzard is offering a free weekend on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 from May 25-28.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
