Wow. We got a lot of info for our favorite franchises, and I am going to be breaking down a lot of them.
First off, lets start with the small stuff. Hearthstone.
Rastakan's Rumble is going to be released this December.
Heroes of the Storm is getting a new, original character. Orphea, who just so happens to be the daughter of the Ravenlord. Here is her release trailer.
And here is her character spotlight.
At the end of the video, they teased a lot of changes coming to Heroes of the Storm in 2019
Next up, World of Warcraft
Blizzard announced that the WoW Classic is playable on the show floor, and that anybody who has a virtual ticket can also partake in the demo. They then announced that WoW Classic will be released Summer of 2019, and as long as you have an active WoW sub, you can play WoW Classic.
Thats not all, we got a new WoW cinematic titled "Lost Honor".
They also talked a little about the 8.1 patch, titled "Tides of Vengeance". It is going to feature a new raid. More will be disclosed as we come closer to release.
Thats not it for Warcraft, no no no. We got another announcement.
Warcraft 3 is getting a remaster. Called "Warcraft 3: Reforged" this remaster will update everything in the game, from character models, to the engine, and even allow us to play in 4k. It also comes with both of the expansions to boot. Pre-orders are up now, and if you pre-order now, you will get rewards that spread across other Blizzard games. No release date set just yet.
Diablo is coming to mobile. In a game just announced, "Diablo: Immortal" is being released on iOS and Android
Diablo: Immortals takes place between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3. It tells stories that we haven't seen before. It has 20 years of stories in it, hopefully this is just a taste of whats to come.
That was a lot.... but I am not done yet. Now onto the one that I care about the most. Overwatch.
We got a new cinematic featuring McCree.
Well... we now know why the front of the diner is littered with trains.
Along with the new cinematic, we got our new character. Ladies and gentleman, Hero 29.
Pumped for her. She is going to be amazing and her ult looks really damn cool.
During the Q and A panel, they released her origin story.
Ok breath. That is it for now. Those are the big announcements that have come from the show so far. If anything else gets announced, I will be sure to bring it to you all.
As always, this has been James with Game Fix! Game on everybody!
