Without a doubt, "#Overwatch" has grown to become one of the widely played hero shooters as of late and a lot has changed since it was released over a year ago. Its #game developer – Blizzard Entertainment will be participating at this year's Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, as it is said that they will be making some announcements about the game. However, fans may already have an idea as some of them have already data mined the game files.

Junkertown

If rumors fit in the bag, it is believed that the game maker will be revealing a new map for the game during the event. Some of the players are pretty much aware by now that the name of the upcoming map [VIDEO] is Junkertown as data miners have dug up a sound file that welcomes players to the mentioned wasteland.

Long before that audio file got dug up, Junkertown has been already tipped by some of Junkrat's skins. D.Va's Junker skin also provided hints about the map stating that mech battles have been the past time of its inhabitants.

Built from the ashes of an Omnium explosion after the Omnic Crisis, Junkertown is home to both of "Overwatch's" Roadhog and Junkrat who are also members of the Australian Liberation Front. That being said, it is believed that there will be a deluge of Omnic scrap and Junkers within the inbound battlefield.

Fan-made zombie mode

Meanwhile, an "Overwatch [VIDEO]" player who goes by the name Deltin is currently making quite a buzz as he devised a so-called zombie mode within the game. Per the game's mechanics, the match will be a shoot fest between the Survivors and the Zombies where a match is determined if the infected players were able to convert all the survivors upon death.

Survivors, on the other hand, know that they've won if they were not killed within the five-minute time limit. As for team switching upon death, the #Fan used a bot outside the game as a workaround.

Rocket Punch...again

At the time of writing, the melee juggernaut Doomfist's Rocket Punch has been nerfed yet again and this time, both of its vertical and horizontal hit boxes were reduced. This simply means that players will just have to exert extra effort in getting a pretty good aim at an opponent while performing the above-mentioned attack.

Report feature for Xbox One and PS4

The reporting function is finally home console bound. This has been confirmed by "Overwatch" game director Jeff Kaplan adding that the feature will be included in patch 1.14. It is also believed that hero balances for Orisa, Junkrat, and Roadhog are currently being tested and will be on the way. Check out a video about the game here:
