A new map for the highly regarded title "Overwatch" has been released for Windows PC users, presenting an interesting new environment. In addition, it seems as though there is a lot of hype for the hit Blizzard Entertainment game as fans have been noticing some "Overwatch" Easter eggs in recent "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." episodes.

"Overwatch" Oasis Map And Its New Dangers

It was announced that a new map was released for Windows PC players of "Overwatch" called "Oasis." The new environment presents metropolitan locations that gave the game a new kind of vibe. With Oasis, "Overwatch" players can now experience speedy cars along highways, which can cause damages for players. In order to avoid getting hurt by new vehicles, players can use the new jump pads presented on "Overwatch."

"Overwatch" players have been waiting for the release of the map since Blizzard Entertainment teased it during the previously concluded BlizzCon. Currently, the Oasis "Overwatch" map is only available on PC for Public Test Realm. However, Blizzard Entertainment explained that they are planning to open up the map to the different platforms. With that, fans will have to wait until Oasis is available for Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

More To Obsess With On "Overwatch" Character Symmetra

Along with the new map, players are also anticipating the new Symmetra. The new character is said to present a new skillset that can be tested on PC. The "Overwatch" team is reportedly still working on the character, which means that there is still a wait until the updates are released.

Symmetra seems to be a popular character from "Overwatch," as reports indicated that an episode of the hit series "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." gave some Easter eggs referring to the character. A Reddit user by the name of Zero573 pointed out that the most recent episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" titled "Deals With Our Devils" gave a reference to the well-loved "Overwatch" character Symmetra.

This is not the first time that "Overwatch" has been teased in the ABC series "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Reports indicated that one of the "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." writers could be an avid "Overwatch" fan. A previous episode features lines from "Overwatch" character Junkrat were said by "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." character Hellfire.
