Overwatch is celebrating its newest “deathmatch” map with a challenge to unlock new icons, sprays, and an epic skin.

The new map of Kanezaka, located in Japan near Hanamura, offers something new for “deathmatch” players. They can do battle in places like an arcade, the streets, and even a cat cafe. Players can even get a different view of Shimada Castle, the former home of Shimada brothers Genji and Hanzo.

To celebrate this new map, Blizzard is having the “Kanezaka Challenge.” Much like previous challenges, players will have a chance to win a new icon, spray, and epic skin by winning 3, 6, and 9 games respectively in either quickplay, competitive, or the arcade.

There is also the chance to earn six more sprays by watching certain Overwatch streams on Twitch. Sprays can be earned by watching for 2, 4, and 6 hours. To earn the sprays, Twitch accounts need to be linked to players Blizzard accounts.
