Have you ever wondered what a Manila Overwatch map would look like? Well here’s your answer! Talented Pinoy 3D/environment artist, Shua Llorente, recently released an Overwatch-inspired Manila Map made in Unreal Engine 4.
Watch the preview video for the Manila Map here:
The video itself almost seems like an official Overwatch map reveal, and the Manila map itself is even better! The map features uniquely-Pinoy design elements such as a Catholic Church, those rainbow-colored outdoor umbrellas, and even a “VDO” and a “Jullybee” (based on the large Filipino bank and the iconic fast food chain).
Aside from these uniquely Filipino design elements, the whole map is well-realized in the Overwatch style. As Overwatch takes place in the future, the Manila map features various futuristic buildings and design elements, all while retaining the hodge-podge look of the Philippines’ capital city.
Thanks to this map concept by Shua Llorente, we hope that the folks over at Blizzard does consider making a Manila map; or at least a map that’s based on the Philippines. If Blizzard does decide to make one, here’s hoping that they hire Llorente for the job!
