Blizzcon 2019

Every year the company called Blizzard has a convention in California called Blizzcon. It’s a place for all nerds that love the Blizzard games to unite. The con is a place for cosplay, gaming and updates on Blizzard games. This years game announcements, where especially exciting. 


The company has 5 games: Diablo, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. All of the games but one game came out with a new update.


To start us off, Diablo came out with a new game, Diablo 4. It takes place three years after the events in Diablo 3. The trailer was jaw dropping and let’s players get deeper into the lore and fight a new character that has never been seen before. The release date us unknown. 


Next is World of Warcraft (WoW). They came out with a new expansion, Shadowlands. The trailer completely changes everything you know about the lore, and leaves much unknown and anticipation. It’s out for preorder, but the release is not till next year.


Now the one I’m most excited for, Overwatch. The Overwatch community has been fighting tooth and nail for more lore and now we are getting it. The creators of Overwatch are coming out with a sequel, Overwatch 2. It will have completely new game modes, and a long needed story mode. The trailer was spectacular and showed new characters, but the release date is still being kept a secret.


Hearthstone has come out with a new expansion, Descent of Dragons. This one wraps up the past two expansions. This one comes out in December 10th. The creators of Hearthstone are also making an entirely new game mode called Battlegrounds. It was inspired by the newest explosion on the game scene called “auto-chess”. 


Lastly, Heroes of the Storm. A character from WoW is coming into the game. Truly, this game isn’t as popular as the rivals, Dota 2 and League of Legends, but they have a very respectable and loving fanbase.
