    Overwatch is getting a new map called Horizon Lunar Colony. That map, which is playable in the game’s core quick play and competitive modes, is now available on Overwatch’s public testing region servers.

    Players on Windows PC can opt in to the PTR and play Horizon Lunar Colony as of today. The Assault-type map ties in to Overwatch’s lore; the moon base was “built as a first step towards humanity's renewed exploration of space,” Blizzard said, with the goal of examining “the effects of prolonged extraterrestrial habitation—on human and ape alike.” The base was abandoned after the genetically modified gorillas who inhabited the lunar colony revolted against their human caretakers.

    “Now, many years later, attacking and defending teams must return to the moon and battle for control of the colony’s facilities, all while they discover clues as to the fate of its previous inhabitants,” Blizzard said in an announcement.

    Earlier this week, Blizzard started teasing new information about the moon base, where Overwatch hero Winston was raised. The developer also teased details about Winston’s fellow resident gorillas, including an escapee named Hammond.

    Blizzard hasn’t announced a release date for the new map, but the developer typically tests Overwatch maps on the PTR for a few weeks before rolling them out to PC and consoles.

    Check out a batch of screenshots of Horizon Lunar Colony in the spoiler below.
