The latest PTR update for Overwatch has brought with it a new map for players to try out.

The new Escort map is set in Havana, which is also the location of the new Storm Rising PvE Archives mission that is currently available on the live servers. Blizzard’s description of the Havana map can be found 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.

As usual, the PTR is only available on PC. A release date for the map on all platforms has not been announced.

Overwatch‘s Storm Rising event is live until May 6th. During Storm Rising, players will be able to take part in a new PvE mission that sees Tracer, Genji, Winston, and Mercy on a mission to hunt down the Omnic Talon boss Maximilien in Havana. More than 160 new cosmetics are also up for grabs during the event.
