Overwatch and Blizzard have just announced that the new escort map, Rivalto, is now available in the live severs. The maintenance was running slightly behind, but now players can see it in the Arcade choices and get it during Quick Play.

The new Rivalto map may look familiar as the Venice map from the Retribution event, but they have changed it slightly. Not only does it look happier, but it’s in daytime.
Your Venetian vacation awaits!

Blizzard has included in their patch notes some details on Rivalto:
“Rivalto was home to Talon agent Antonio Bartalotti’s sprawling estate and the backdrop to the infamous “Venice Incident”, a turning point for Overwatch and Talon. The Italian government has taken great steps to preserve Venice, and the results are striking. Tourists visiting this picturesque town can sample the regional cuisine, enjoy a relaxing gondola ride, visit Galleria D’arte Omnica, or simply take in the sights with a stroll along the canal”
It is also noted that the map will not be available in Competitive Play until a future patch.
What are you waiting for? Hop on Overwatch and play on Rivalto through the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
