Hidden amidst the rugged desert canyons and mountains, Petra was once a lively trading center and the capital of the Nabatean Empire between 400 B.C. and A.D. 106. Many traders would often pass by the area, carrying with them textiles, spices, and incense from various regions. The city flourished as its people, the Nabataeans, procured precious water which helped increase the locality’s population. Even so, Petra was lost to the Western world for some time before its discovery back in 1812. Archaeologists are still trying to discover clues to this mysterious city’s past and who decided to carve it.
Overwatch has steadily been increasing their arena maps with three new locations taken from the other areas of Dorado, Eichenwalde, and the Temple of Anubis. Petra would make a great addition to this type of Overwatch map for its narrow pathways and large treasury room. You could easily have a large 3v3 confrontation in the treasury or slink back and hunt foes during 1v1 sessions.
