~ Warning sign

Petra is a historical and archaeological city in southern Jordan. A group of archaeologists have begun an excavation and preservation project among the ruins of the city.[2] The research team started with the uppermost levels of the temple, finding statues of Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. While preparing for excavation of the lower chambers, early imaging revealed a hidden chamber.[3]

The organization carrying out the excavations is also carrying out operations in Ilios and Thailand.[4]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The map's environment range from high vistas to twisting passageways and deep caverns. A dilapidated bridge stretches across the map, and the ground underneath it can crumble away to reveal a lethal pit. Hopping on a green jump pad will boost a hero up to Petra’s higher levels and unlock new strategic possibilities.[2]
