Overwatch‘s newest map, Oasis, has just arrived in the game.

Set in a city in the Arabian Desert in Iraq, Oasis is a control map, split into three stages, that introduces a few new elements to the game. Most prominent is the jump pad, a patch that adds a new vertical element to the fight. With it, you’ll be able to reach new strategic positions above the control point, or use it as a launching point to send ground-locked characters like McCree high into the air for some devastating attacks from above.

The map also introduces a new terrain hazard: cars. A road winds around the map, and if you’re not paying enough attention, your hero might just end a round unceremoniously plastered against a windshield.

Oasis is the second map to be added to the game since launch, not counting the custom maps that have popped up for special Brawl events. The first map was Eichenwalde, which released last September.

Oasis was previously playable on the game’s PTR, but it’s now available in a patch that just rolled out to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Be sure to update your game in order to start playing.
