The New Map- "ICEBOX"
The new map ICEBOX has already been rolled out for the fans. The snowy terrains of the maps will be out in-game on 13th (Unrated) & 27th (Competitive). According to the devs, "The two objective sites on Icebox favor frequent skirmishes, sharp aim, and adaptive play."
" Pierce the dense snow cover as an Attacker to plant the Spike. And, outplay as Defender using zip lines to reach new and dangerous heights. "

New Skin (Singularity)
According to the devs, "Singularity exists in a far future, vast in its journey from the beyond. Powerful, abstract, and mysterious. None know where it came from or how it came to be." Phantom, Sheriff, Spectre, Ares, and Melee are the weapons supposed to have this skin.
