Blizzard Entertainment has unveiled the latest gameplay map for Overwatch. The new map is a Deathmatch map called Petra. You can check out the reveal trailer for Petra below.

The new gameplay map comes out just in time for the game’s upcoming second anniversary event that starts this week. Petra puts all the heroes in the game on their own as they face off against one another. The winner will be the hero who scores enough eliminations to win the match.

Petra features high vistas and twisting passageways, along with some deep caverns. It also features some deadly cliffs that lead to instant death. The map also features a dilapidated bridge that goes across the map. Underneath it, the ground can grumble away to a very lethal pit.

Overwatch is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The game’s second anniversary event is set to kick off on Tuesday, May 22 and will run through Tuesday, June 12 on all platforms. The event will feature over 50 new cosmetic items, including eight new legendary skins, three epic skins and dance emotes.
