Described as the site of one of the most famous battles during the Omnic Crisis, it was here that the leader of the Crusaders, together with a few of his best men, fought to the death with an advancing automatron army. Their efforts helped German reinforcements push back the offensive and ultimately win the fight.

There is no specific date set for the map, with Blizzard simply noting that it will be coming soon.
