Blizzard World is now playable on the Overwatch PTR

A new Overwatch update is now playable on the PTR, and the big news this time around is the arrival of Blizzard World, the theme park hybrid map that was unveiled earlier this month at BlizzCon. 

"An amusement park celebrating the universes of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo, Blizzard World is a brand-new hybrid Assault/Escort map," Blizzard said in the patch notes. "Charge the gates of Stormwind, sneak through the Nexus Experience, and guide the payload through areas filled with high ground, flanking routes, and environmental hazards. Grab some Blizzard-inspired snacks at the concession stand along the way!" 

The latest PTR update also adds an option to remove all AI in the custom game lobby, fixes a few bugs, and clears up a performance issue in Junkertown. The full patch notes are below.
