Ciao amico. Huh? What talking you sia. It’s time to brush up on your Italian because the newest Overwatch map is Rialto, located in Venice, Italy.
Rialto is an escort type map. The goal of the attackers is to escort a wine shipment (payload) to a mansion across the map.
The map may seem familiar as it takes place on the same map used during the Retribution event. However, this time things are different. Instead, Rialto takes place during the day. Not only is there a time change, there are also minor alterations to the map.
But the best part of Rialto is the scenery. The scenery chio like the actual place. Can imagine ownself going holiday sia.
This isn’t the first map that has a unique country. So far, Overwatch has made maps that cover many different countries.
- Antarctica (Ecopoint)
- Australia (Junkertown)
- China (Lijiang Tower)
- England (King’s Row)
- Egypt (Necropolis, Temple of Anubis)
- France (Château Guillard)
- Germany (Eichenwalde, Black Forest)
- Greece (Illios)
- Iraq (Oasis)
- Italy (Rialto)
- Mexico (Dorado, Castillo)
- Moon (Horizon Lunar Colony)
- Nepal (Nepal)
- Nigeria (Numbani)
- Thailand (Ayutthaya)
- Russia (Volskaya Industries)
- USA (Route 66, Hollywood)
Blizzard certainly isn’t shy about putting countries into their Overwatch. Hopefully one day Blizzard might put Singapore into the game. We might be able to see the merlion spitting water into the air or Marina Bay Sands in the background!
