The sound stage for They Come from Beyond the Moon is filled with props, lighting, movie equipment, and countless workplace safety violations.[1]


Hollywood is one of the locations in Overwatch. It is an Assault/Escort map.

Welcome to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, California, where palm trees and fancy cars line the streets, and movie stars, directors, and high-powered studio executives rub shoulders for a chat and drink at Galand's. Down the street from the Mandarin Theatre, Goldshire Studios' omnic film auteur Hal-Fred Glitchbot has created his two latest films, They Came From Beyond The Moon and Six-Gun Killer, to varying amounts of critical and commercial acclaim. However, even Tinseltown has been gripped by anti-omnic sentiment, and the outspoken director has become a prime target in the escalating conflict.

The payload on this map is Hal-Fred Glitchbot's limousine. The attacking team must escort him to his trailer.

StoryEdit

Hollywood is a neighborhood in Los Angeles, California. Since 1912, it has been the center of the USA's film industry.[2]

Since he began making movies with Goldshire Pictures, director Hal-Fred Glitchbot has been the target of anti-omnic protesters. With the upcoming release of his two latest films They Came From Beyond The Moon and Six-Gun Killer, Glitchbot is running low on funding.

Easter EggsEdit

  • Around the first attacking spawn point there are several movie posters for They Came From Beyond The Moon, Six Gun Killer, Some Like It Bot, and Hero Of My Storm.
  • Two billboards advertising Lúcio can be seen between the first attacker spawn and the control point.
  • The Walk of Fame features the names of several actors, including Maifie Adams, Baleog Fierce, Olivia Rai, Olaf Stout, Samuel Drest, Erik Swift, Robert Greenways, Sakura Cheong, and Thespion 4.0.
    • Baleog the Fierce, Olaf the Stout and Erik the Swift are the main characters from the game 'The Lost Vikings'.
  • Despite Hollywood being in the United States, the Babylon Hotel's cash register has a pound sign (£) on it.
  • Down the road to the left of the attackers' spawn, there is Los Muertos graffiti identical to the graffiti in Dorado.
  • In the security room by the first point, a monitor can be seen with a game of Hearthstone open.
  • At the final point, there is a Tyrael-brand trailer.
  • Hal-Fred Glitchbot's voice line "Jesse McCree? That's a terrible name for a cowboy." is a reference to the 2000 film Shanghai Noon.
  • The Griffith Observatory can be seen to the left of the Hollywood Sign, even though the actual observatory is located to the right.

TriviaEdit

  • Hollywood was originally teased in a tweet from @PlayOverwatch.[3] It was announced on November 6, 2015, and was added to the closed beta three days later on November 9.
  • Hollywood is one of three maps without any Environmental hazards, the other two being Ecopoint: Antarctica and Temple of Anubis.
  • Since many of Blizzard's artists are from southern California, Hollywood's visual design was given to artists from outside the country to capture a more fantastical view of it.[4]
  • No expense was spared for the set of Six-Gun Killer.[5]
  • Hollywood end

    An example of Hollywood's photo finish.

    The photo finish in this map is in monochrome, with a filmstrip border and the word "Fin". It is also made as if it is cast from a film roll. The background music is also gone through an "old-timey" filter to create the old movie effect.
  • Within the Mandarin Theater, prices for refreshments are in the hundreds of dollars, ranging from $100 for a large soda or candy, to $1,000 for a "Family Feast."
  • When the payload is moving through the set of Six-Gun Killer, the camera stationed there will follow the payload as if there is a movie in filming.
