The attacking team begins in Mision Dorado, a historic location famous for the sound of the ornamental bells that hang amidst its arches.[1]

Dorado is one of the locations in Overwatch. It is an Escort map

It is Festival de la Luz in Dorado, an annual celebration of the end of the Omnic Crisis and the period of darkness - both figurative and literal - that engulfed Mexico when the Omnics destroyed much of the country's power grid and infrastructure. But there is a new dawn, as LumériCo and its CEO, war hero and former president Guillermo Portero, are unveiling a string of fusion plants that promise to deliver clean, free energy to the Mexican people.

The payload in this map is a truck with a fusion core in the back. The attacking team must escort it to the ziggurat to activate the power plant.

StoryEdit

During the Omnic Crisis, Mexico's infrastructure was destroyed in what its people call 'La Medianoche', causing the nation to lose power and internet access for years. Today, the citizens of Dorado celebrate its end with the Festival de la Luz. LumériCo was founded by former president Guillermo Portero to repair the network, but a gang called Los Muertos has been fighting the company and accusing it of being corrupt.[4]

In Hero, Soldier: 76 traveled to Dorado and had a firefight with Los Muertos members. In the process, he saved Alejandra, a preteen girl whose family runs the Panadería las Nieblas by the cliffside.

LumériCo's latest power plant in Dorado was set to be finished on November 1, with a large party on Market Street to celebrate it. However, Los Muertos managed to hack into LumériCo's database with help from a 'hacker collective' called Sombra. They leaked emails exposing the company's financial scandals and connections to Vishkar, sparking protests on the day of the celebration.[5] On the same day, Junkrat and Roadhog broke into the Banco de Dorado and stole millions of dollars in gold.

Two days later, Guillermo Portero stepped down from his position as CEO, and pro-Sombra graffiti has appeared across the world.[6]

Easter EggsEdit

  • In the market, there is a piñata that resembles Diablo from the franchise of the same name.
  • To the left of the second attackers' spawn, there is Los Muertos graffiti identical to the graffiti in Hollywood.
  • In front of the town hall, there is a statue of Guillermo Portero, with a plaque that says "Presidente Guillermo Portero - Protector de México".
  • Near the final defenders' spawn, there is a table with three folders on it, all marked "Clasificado". One is marked "Jack Morrison", another says "Soldado: 76", and the last says "Sombra".
  • In the final defenders' spawn, there is a map of Mexico marked "Estado de Red Eléctrica". Several towns are marked, including Dorado.

TriviaEdit

  • Unlike other maps, Dorado was never formally announced by Overwatch on social media. It was first seen in Twitch.tv streams from streamers HayliNic and Ellohime on October 15, 2015.[7]
  • Dorado was the second payload map that the development team worked on. It was designed to be an uphill climb for the attacking team with large, vertical spaces.[8]
  • The artists working on Dorado searched for colorful Mexican towns for inspriation, and found a photo of a town on a cliff overlooking the ocean. They used the photo for reference, only to later find out that the town was actually Manarola, Italy.[8][9]
