Overwatch just premiered its newest map, which is set on the moon circa 2060. It’s Horizon Lunar Colony, an assault map where players battle it out to capture the point while discovering clues from the former scientific base.

Check it out:

Of course, it’s a map for Overwatch’s beloved Winston, a genetically-engineered gorilla who used to live on the colony. According to Blizzard, that colony’s goal “was to examine the effects of prolonged extraterrestrial habitation—on human and ape alike. The scientists’ research proved incredibly promising...until, suddenly, all contact and communications with the base were lost.”


The map will launch today on the public test realm for PC.
