The annual celebration of all things Blizzard – BlizzCon 2017 kicked off over the weekend.
While we were all sipping back champers in preparation for the Melbourne Cup, Blizzard were throwing news out around all their biggest games. StarCraft II is going free-to-play, Hanzo and Alexstraza are coming to Heroes of the Storm, Kobolds and Catacombs is the newest expansion to hit Hearthstone, and the newest update for World of Warcraft will be Battle For Azeroth.
However, here we’ll be diving into all things Overwatch. First of all, new map Blizzard World brings all your favourite Blizzard franchises together for one Easter Egg-filled map. Honestly, it looks wonderful – now it just needs to become an actual theme park.
A new support hero, Moira, was also revealed. From the below gameplay clip from Muselk, she looks like a tonne of fun to play.
And of course, what would a Blizzard press conference be without a new Overwatch animated short. In Honour and Glory, we learn a bit more about Reinhardt’s back story. Check it out:
