"Petra is handsome. There are some really fun gameplay elements to it as well", Kaplan continued.
Jeff talks briefly about the new deathmatch map Petra which comes with a mega-health pack in the center of the map and it has a lot of "diversity". There's parts of the map that are great for open, long-range heroes. The developer update highlights, new free-for-all deathmatch map: PETRA, free-for-all competitive deathmatch season, a free Legendary Anniversary Loot Box, new Anniversary cosmetics and more. The Anniversary event it coincides with will not only offer new content, but also bring back old Brawl modes and make past event-specific cosmetics available once again.
