At first, following the Blizzcon 2019 reveal for Overwatch 2, Blizzard revealed even more information concerning the new content for Overwatch and Overwatch 2.

However, four new maps were announced at the show this year and thus, will be available in both games. These maps carry on the Overwatch tradition of being based on real world locations from across the globe.

Both games will, for the foreseeable future following Overwatch 2's launch, get all new maps and heroes that are released for the Overwatch universe. Also, Progression, levels, and unlocked cosmetics will carry over between games but the fine details of this unusual arrangement have yet to be revealed.

The first new map that was briefly shown off in the trailers, is Toronto. This is the first look players are getting at Overwatch's depiction of a futuristic Canada. The urban map is designed with the brand new Push mode in mind, according to the developers.

The map however, features everything players might expect from a stereotypical Canadian setting, which includes maple trees, plenty of snow and ice, and of course, a statue of a hockey player.

Another map being added for Overwatch 2 is Rio De Janeiro. Based on the Brazilian city, this bright map seems to take influence from the favelas and architecture of the real world city.

It was also revealed that a variant of this map will be one of the settings for the game's new PvE story mode, which is only available in Overwatch 2.

Not much is known about the other two maps, Monte Carlo and Gothenburg. The latter is based on the Swedish town where Reinhardt, Brigitte, and Torbjorn hail from.

Both of these are multiplayer maps that will be available to Overwatch 1 players when they launch, presumably alongside Overwatch 2 sometime in 2020.

At present, Overwatch 2 is in development and will be available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
