New, 6 comments

Get ready for the ‘grand opening’

Overwatch is getting a new map with a cross-game Blizzard theme. Called BlizzardWorld, the new map will included theme park attractions based on Blizzard properties like Heroes of the Storm and StarCraft.

Director Jeff Kaplan introduced the hybrid map, which will have players both attack and protect the payload, during BlizzCon 2017’s opening ceremony. Accompanying the announcement was a fun cinematic short that showed the rest of the cast of Overwatch as they watched the trailer itself, gushing over the Blizzard-based amusements.

There’s an arcade based on Heroes of the Storm, a place based on Azeroth from World of Warcraft and areas borrowed from Hearthstone, among others. Watch that below.

Update: BlizzardWorld goes live for all players on Jan. 23, Blizzard announced on the Overwatch Twitter account.
