Overwatch has launched its brand new Paris map on PTR, but you can only play it if you have the PC version of the game right now. So, when will it be heading to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One?

The new map, which was added to the game’s Public Test Realm (PTR) on January 30, is proving to be very popular among the game’s online community. 

However, while it can still be viewed on Twitch streams and be looked at online by console players, many will be expecting an announcement about when they will be able to jump into the French capital with their favorite heroes.

Unfortunately for them, though, Blizzard is still testing the new design on PC before rolling it out on console and no official word has been given on when that is set to change. 

All we have right now is merely speculation, however, as the new assault map is still yet to be added to the full game.

Many fans are expecting the Paris map will be ready for competitive players to clash on during Season 2 of the Overwatch League (OWL), which kicks off on February 14 – with scrims already underway. 

Whether or not the OWL 2019 will mark the full debut of the Paris map is yet to be seen, but it would mean that players have been given two weeks to get to grips with the new battleground before clashing with other pros.

Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
