Blizzard has released a new map for Overwatch known as Horizon Lunar Colony, which as you may have guessed, is set on the moon.

Hot on the heels of its free anniversary weekend, Blizzard is rolling out a new map for multiplayer shooter, Overwatch. Every character has a voice line they'll say when they look through it and gaze at Earth, but unless you know Russian, Zarya's won't sound like much.

As per usual, PC players who have access to Overwatch's PTR server can try out the new arena before it arrives on the live servers, but that's not the only thing that needs testing.

The goal of this changed ability is to allow Reaper to remain in the middle of the fray for longer periods as he regains health as opposed to finishing the fight and using his passive.

"McCree's ultimate can deal a lot of damage if it has a lot of time to build up, but it was often too hard to get even a small amount of damage out before being stopped or killed". Also on the tweak block is McCree's Deadeye skill is now that little bit quicker, locking on after 0.2 seconds instead of 0.8 seconds and quadrupling the damage done in that first second.

While Kaplan did point out that far along doesn't necessarily mean the hero is ready, he made the comments during an interview with Express Online in April. "These changes make it more flexible and powerful", Blizzard explained.

Head hitbox size reduced by 20%.

Finally, Roadhog has received some changes that keep his DPS the same, but balance out his burst damage. His Scrapgun damage is being decreased by a pretty sizeable 33 percent, but his fire rate is being increased by 30 percent and the clip size is also increasing from 4 to 5 shots.
