Underwater City & Mountain maps

General Discussion
Highly Rated
We have different types of maps in overwatch... we have a map on moon, a map on an advanced city in desert... So we can also have an underwater city map and a mountain area map.

In UNDERWATER map there can be a city/palace and players can capture the point in some particular areas of the city/palace. Players will be able to view underwater fishes through the glass of the walls of the city. In some place players will be exposed to the water of the sea.. Just like how we can experience gravity in lunar colony.

In MOUNTAIN map(escort) players will move the payload in a zig zag way up the mountain. Victory spot will be at the top of the mountain and players will start the payload from bottom. The top portion of the map that is the last part will be snowy, middle part will be within a cave and bottom will be a mixture of rock and lush green path .There will be wonderful scenic beauty around the
mountain,waterfalls also and some hill blocks for high ground advantage. There will be lots of boop advantage in the top part of the map like if a Lucio or phara boops U.. U will fell from the top of the mountain
Honestly? That’d be sick.
i dont really know about the second one..
defenders always having the high ground?
its terrifying to only imagine the junkrat spam.
Nepal is on a mountain...

A while back there was datamined voices for underwater effects so its pretty much sure its coming. (i think it was sonar effects and some bubbles effect)

maybe there'd be a lot of rocks or just the terrain in general that gives a lot of cover from above?

WoW.. Thats really something but that was back in 2016...though we got the space map.. May be we can get the underwater map in future
It would be really awesome to see a sort of abandoned Rapture-esque city in the Overwatch universe.

No... It will be not like that....the roads will be slightly slanting.. It would not seem that the defenders will be in higher ground
I agree, an underwater map would be sick.

I’m pretty sure they were referring to a terrian where the characters themselves would be in the water, as in swimming. They said to go through the effort to make all those new animations etc., would be too difficult. OP was talking about a map where the outside was water, as if they were in a bubble.
As someone who grew up in the mountains.. I really like that idea.

Also really like the underwater idea just because it'd offer blizz soooooo many cool opportunities in terms of aesthetics.

Obviously swimming and water gameplay will be difficult to implement in overwatch but a underwater city where there will be no water where the players will play can be created in overwatch..water can only be seen by the glass walls..
Id love a BioShock type map. That would be awesome.

Ya but actually its a monastery in mountain... A direct mountain map with zigzag way up will be cool to play
imagin an underwater city map. tubes connect each kind of 'main area'. the anti phara map, and junkrat's greatest home...
its pretty bad.
the mountain map could be a true sniper map tho.

Tubes? Eh ...have a look on the Atlantis city of DC comics..its so beautiful... And also players will play where there will be no water ...so no anti phara map also
