Get some insights into Overwatch's next map in the behind the scenes video below.

Blizzard's developers go into the inspiration for the Junkertown design, how it fits into Junkrat and Roadhog's lore, and how the team went about coming up with some of its design ideas. As the map progresses it becomes more "high fantasy", according to Blizzard, with game director Jeff Kaplan describing the next segment as his favorite section of the stage, with it featuring the abandoned Junkertown and its various ramshackle establishments.

Junkertown is an escort map set in the dusty Australian Outback, built on top of a completely destroyed area following the rebellion of farmers against the robotic Omnics. The last part of the map takes place in the Scrapyard, where teams do battle around a massive rotating turbine. Junkertown comes to Overwatch on September 19 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
