Overwatch 2 Rome and New York City Maps Revealed at BlizzConline

Blizzard's art team pulled out all the stops with these maps. Both do their best to recreate the beauty of their realistic inspirations. Rome allows players to take a walk through Italy, the map is filled with beautiful stone buildings, statues, pillars, and colosseum paying homage to its old-world architecture. It even features a colosseum accented by warrior statues, overwatch banners, and a massive staircase leading to the entrance of the building.

New York mixes an old-school version of the Big Apple with Blizzard's staple Overwatch sci-fi look. The map is riddled with small businesses, yellow cabs, and players can even take a trip to Grand Central Station. It'll be interesting to see how players navigate through the massive skyscrapers and NYC streets in this new game.

It hasn't been stated what game modes will be available on these maps as of yet. However, it's possible that more will be revealed in the coming days. Make sure to tune into Day 2 of BlizzConline for more updates on Overwatch 2.
