New Hero: Sombra



Abilities



The Arcade

A new area in Overwatch where you will find all the old Brawls, plus new content such as 1v1, 3v3, Mystery Heroes and No Limits (it is similar to the old Quick Play).
Once a week you can get a free Loot Box for winning a 1v1 Match, as well as a 3v3 Match. You also have 1 week to win 9 Matches (total, doesn't matter in what part of the Arcade you get it) and every 3 Victories (up to a total of 9) you will earn a Loot Box.


New Map - Ecopoint: Antarctica

New map that ties in with Mei's lore. This is where all the 1v1 and 3v3 will take place.
