How to Play Talantis in Overwatch 2


Blizzard is doing something a bit unusual in Season 4 of Overwatch 2. For the first time, players will be able to play on a fan-made map, called Talantis. Here's how to try it out.

Season 4 of Overwatch 2 is starting strong, as new hero Lifeweaver was made available, allowing players to get a feel of how he plays and how to play against him. Though the season is in its early stages, events like the Lifeweaver challenge and the addition of the new Battle Pass ensure players have something to do this April.

Not much is known about Talantis just yet. and players will not be able to play on it until May 25, per the Roadmap for the season. However, according to GameRant, the map will be unique among Overwatch 2 maps, featuring environmental hazards, numerous jump pads and other quirks only possible through direct involvement with the community.

Taking inspiration from mythical underwater cities like Atlantis and Bioshock's Rapture, Talantis is a Control map with giant fish and Greek architecture - co-opted by villain organization Talon to use as their headquarters. While this map is not a canon part of the Overwatch universe, it does open up more possibilities for community mapmaking in the future.
