Blizzard World is coming to Overwatch next week

A new map is coming to multiplayer shooter Overwatch next week in the form of Blizzard World.

First revealed at BlizzCon 2017, the upcoming battleground acts as an homage to the legendary studio’s library of beloved games.

Filled with references to the likes of World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and more, Blizzard World is a fanatic’s dream come true.

Blizzard announced the map’s January 23 release date by handing out virtual tickets to the fictional theme park on its social media channels. A cute little touch.

In other Overwatch news, the most recent update introduced Overwatch League alongside 312 team-based skins for players to purchase.

Tokens can be purchased in-game with real-world money to be spent on skins for individual heroes. It’s a neat way to showcase your support while enjoying the game.

Game Director Jeff Kaplan also confirmed recently that a “very awesome” hero has entered testing at the Blizzard studios.
