Overwatch has updated yet again, this time adding a new Assault map. Set on the beautiful streets of Paris, France, this map is filled with stunning sights and tight spaces.

There are a number of sights to see in the new Paris map. As seen in the trailer, players will fight in the Cabaret Luna, a cozy club where robotic diva Luna can be seen belting out the latest tunes. If you’re feeling peckish, look to make a stop at Pâtisserie Galand, which is known for their “delicate mille-feuille and colorful macarons,” according to Blizzard.

Finally, players can keep a lookout for the Maison Marat, a massive palace in the heart of the city. This can be seen in the trailer starting at around the 30 second mark. The palace is filled with all sorts of fine artwork, including statues and fancy furniture. It’s likely this house will not be in as nice a condition after every round of Overwatch.

Like the other maps in Overwatch, the Paris map is likely packed with small details and obscure hints pointing at what’s next for the online shooter. Many are anticipating clues for the 30th character to join the fight scattered around Paris. Expect to see a bunch of new posts on the Overwatch subreddit now that the map is released.

Along with the map, there are a small number of patch notes for the update. These include minor bug fixes to maps, characters, UI and other areas of Overwatch. There aren’t any gameplay tweaks in this update, so don’t worry about your favorite characters getting nerfed this time around. For a full look at the Overwatch patch notes, check right here.

The Overwatch Paris map is now available to play on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The map does not require any additional purchases.
