In the tweet, a video is shown off, and we’re given a good look at the map. From what was seen, it’s clear that Talantis is an underwater-themed map with giant fish swimming around the edges. It has a unique visual style not normally seen in the game.
Talantis is a 5v5 map that plays similarly to other Overwatch 2 maps, with each team being tasked with taking control of the center. Players can take a lift to get to the objective. The first team to capture the objective twice wins the match, and all three rounds are played in the same location.
It’s not confirmed, but would seem likely, that this community-made map will be the first of several to come to the hero shooter. For more Overwatch 2 news, check out our story on Lifeweaver getting a control rework and healing buff soon and our Lifeweaver hero guide.
