Overwatch is teasing what could be the next hero, map

Blizzard has kicked off another teaser campaign for Overwatch.

The official Overwatch Twitter account has begun teasing something coming to the game. The account shared a very brief video with the header ‘calm before the storm’.

The viewpoint isn’t moving, focusing instead on showing a brick wall in one of the game’s cities.

On the wall, a mural of the Lunar Colony appears, though it’s been vandalised with a No Bots spray over it. The wall also has a couple of other posters, one for a Lucio concert, and a few for and against Omnics.

You can also see images of other animals, presumably part of the same programme that created Winston. It’s not immediately clear which part of these images Blizzard wants us to focus on, but that didn’t stop fans from speculating.

Although there’s very little to go on now, some believe this is the first tease for the game’s next hero, hero 28. Others are more reasonable, suggesting instead that we could be looking at a new map.

The posters on the wall could indicate the map is set in the UK, which has a lot of anti-Omnics.

Subsequent teasers will hopefully be less cryptic.

Buy our t-shirts, yeah

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
