- "Turista is a plush spa and resort for affluent galactic travelers, nestled in the middle of a giant skeleton of a long dead creature. It's a long, 3 lane map that allows a variety of playstyles."
- — In-game description
The map was made for free for everyone for a limited time starting on June 27th, 2017 as part of the Days of Summer event, as well as gaining its own gamemode, Turista 24/7.
- The map is set on Mars according the Days of Summer trailer where the narrator describes the "martian vista" when talking about Turista. The map is also referred as marsoasis in the game files.
- However, the map features a massive ocean as well as the skeleton of a giant creature. Several celestial objects can also be seen in the sky, contradicting the traditional representation of Mars depicted in the game and other maps.
