Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard's "Hero Brawler" is introducing a unique new character to its roster soon: Cho'gall. The two-headed monstrosity is far stronger than normal characters, but he's also controlled by two players at the same time.

Greymane and Lunara were two other characters introduced during the Heroes of the Storm opening ceremony, and the Overwatch presentation revealed that Tracer would also make her way into the game.

In addition to the new characters, Heroes of the Storm is also getting a new mode: The Arena. Have you ever wanted to play 5v5 match with all Illidans? This will be your chance.

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void

The current StarCraft trilogy is coming to an end, but that doesn't mean the series is over quite yet. Blizzard announced a new series of adventures is currently in development called Nova Covert Ops. We got a full run-down on what that entails in our interview with one of Blizzard's senior designers.

Diablo III

Blizzard outlined the many changes and additions coming in Diablo III's next update, patch 2.4.0. Among the biggest are new areas and Legendary items, changes to Seasonal mode rewards, and a new challenge in the form of Set Dungeons.

We'll be at Blizzcon all weekend, and this story will be updated with additional details and interviews throughout the convention.

At 14:00 there is a funeral pyre, so I am guessing someone important dies.

@GreySeven: Considering the Directors previous two films I don't think so, could be a surprise hit.

@Agermemnon: I like to recall how George Lucas died a million deaths after making an empty series of CGI-driven movies. He had a good thing going. Star Wars. Then he really did himself in with Indiana Jones. Ouch. Peter Jackson went nearly the same route. Did you see the Hobbit movies? Can anyone anywhere name the dwarfs in the movies without looking them up on the internet? (except the fat one) Did anyone anywhere really care about those "epic" CGI battles? Did anyone really care about the Gungans versus the droid army, for that matter? Nah. The Hobbit looked more like a trailer for a Warhammer game, and real-life small people in Ewok outfits were more engaging than any CGI clone army.

I would contest to say, "Nope", and doubly so as it applies to Blizzard because Tolkien's stories have been around longer than George Lucas and also Blizzard entertainment and are, essentially, the daddy of WarCraft which, therefore, means "nope".

@GreySeven: Eh ? hobbit films were great, you might have not liked them but that doesn't matter, plenty did. What the hell does CGI or people in suits have to do with the impact of telling a story ?

Lucas didn't die, he made a killing off his Star Wars films then sold it to Disney for another massive pot of cash, his laughing all the way to the bank.

So basically there is nothing new really. When was the last time blizzard actually gave players something GOOD. Typical heart and soul gone corporation.

I am 100% sure the only thing out there in 2015 is bloodborne and 2016 dark souls 3.

Yes hearthstone is good but designed with max money on mind. Starcraft 2 is good. But really when was actually a time that blizzard gave you something and your response was "yes blizzard this meets my expectations"

Hmmm let me think, diablo 2, starcraft 2, wow at first, hearthstone is a bit of a joke but ok, it is addictive. So really it has been about a decade that this game company has spent only and only taking your money.

Let's face it blizzard hearth and soul is in the shitter, so anything coming out of blizzard is just never worth checking out. Haha Blizzard only announces disappointments.

Ps. As a gamer to a gamer I can say only this, if you want a good game to put amile back on your face, demon souls, dark souls, bloodborne, skip dark souls 2, wait for darknsouls 3. Blizzard, you have no friends only cash slaves

From this article right here I can tell I will never visit blizzcon, such a joke, one thing is new and that is warcraft movie trailer which I will watch NEVER

Last I hear blizzard is hiring to revive old classics, hmmm lets make diablo 2 with better graphics, find ways to have

@johnymoskwich: Yes I agree with your analysis. It would be much better if they made games for free. No money just great games for free. Lets all play Dark souls and die over and over again while we try to memorise the the combat sequence until we get it just right. That is so much fun. We will all have a blast with that. Free games for the hardcore gamers not to mention the elite hard core gamers. They deserve great free games.

Do you mean the only game in 2015 worth playing was Bloodborne?

@Dsolow5: What's your probem?

They've got characters from many regions, Russia, Australia, Germany, a freaking Cowboy Amerian, so why be a douche about Asian themed characters. . . That's like hating Street Fighter for having a Sumo wrestler.

Stop hating dood!
