Overwatch: NEW MAP – Eichenwalde

Written by Caowl

Eichenwalde is the first new map being added to the game. It’s a hybrid map located in Germany.


The little town was the site of one of the most famous battles during the Omnic Crisis. The leader of the Crusaders, Balderich von Adler, and a few of his best soldiers made their last stand here against an advancing automation army. Outnumbered and outgunned, they were ultimately slain during the resulting combat. However, thanks to their valiant efforts, the German military was able to push back the omnic offensive and win the fight. In the present day, Eichenwalde lies abandoned and the forest has slowly begun overtaking the village. The scars of war can be spotted through out the whole village and on the thrown in the middle of the castle sits the remains of Balderich von Adler.


One team must escort a battering ram to Eichenwalde Castle to reclaim Balderich’s remains from their current resting place, while the opposing team does everything in its power to stop the keep from being breached.


Enjoy some beautiful pictures of the new map:
