Headlining these changes is the inclusion of Havana in the map pool. "Havana, first introduced in the Storm Rising Overwatch event, is a classic escort map with plenty of twists and turns that wind through city streets and into colonial fortifications," the league said in the announcement.
The map pool for Stage 3 is as follows:
- Volskaya Industries
- Horizon Lunar Colony
- Watchpoint: Gibraltar
In the case of a tiebreaker, one of the two Control maps not played in the series will be used.
The league also announced a new Match of the Week feature, designed to highlight usually the first match of Sunday match weeks. The first Match of the Week will feature the New York Excelsior taking on the London Spitfire.
Finally, a new League Replays feature was announced. It will allow players to watch OWL matches in their entirety in the client.
Overwatch League Stage 3 starts Thursday at 7 p.m. ET with the reigning Stage champions San Francisco Shock taking on Season 2 expansion team Atlanta Reign.
