After the month long “Retribution” event from Overwatch, the setting of Rialto in Venice, Italy will remain. Starting today it will serve as the backdrop for a new escort map for the heroes. Will your teammates stay in the payload in this new map? Only time will tell.
Rialto was home to Talon agent Antonio Bartalotti’s sprawling estate and the backdrop to the infamous “Venice Incident,” a turning point for Overwatch and Talon. The Italian government has taken great steps to preserve Venice, and the results are striking. Tourists visiting this picturesque town can sample the regional cuisine, enjoy a relaxing gondola ride, visit Galleria D’arte Omnica (the local art gallery), or simply take in the sights with a stroll along the canal.
