A new update has been released for Overwatch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC that introduces the Havana Escort map to the game.

A version of the map first appeared in the game during the Storm Rising event, which saw an Overwatch Strike team heading to Havana to locate and extract a member of Talon’s council, Maximilien, to gain intel about Doomfist.

Read Blizzard’s full description of this new Escort map below:

Begin your trip at the Taller de Sebastián, where the classic cars that line Havana’s bustling streets stop for refueling and repair. Escort a truck of rum barrels on the sun-drenched cobblestone roads, fighting off those who try to stop you. As you make your way, duck into a colorful building to escape enemy fire and savor the impressive flavors of Havana at La Cocina de Miranda or Café del Sol. Battle your opponents through the alleys until you reach the Don Rumbotico rum distillery, a once little-known local treasure that has recently earned international acclaim. Finally, guide the jalopy through the distillery to its destination at the Havana Sea Fort, a historical landmark recently purchased by an anonymous financial group and closed to the public.

In addition to the Havana map, this latest update adds the 2019 Atlantic All-Star Mercy and 2019 Pacific All-Star Lúcio legendary skins to the game to celebrate the Overwatch League 2019 All-Stars event. Both skins will be available until May 22nd. The All-Stars event is scheduled to take place next week on May 15th and May 16th at the Blizzard Arena.
