It would be easy to look at this video, listen to the music, check the quality of the design and lighting and models and think hey, these are our first looks at some new maps for Overwatch. But nope, they’re all the work of 3D artist Joshua Llorente.

Amazing stuff. You can see more of Joshua’s work at his ArtStation page.
