As part of its BlizzCon opening ceremony, Blizzard has revealed a variety of new content coming to Overwatch. That includes a new map called BlizzardWorld which, as the name suggests, is essentially an amusement park themed around Blizzard's various games.
If you've played any of the games, you'll immediately recognize at least one area. There's a section that resembles World of Warcraft's Stormwind, a Hearthstone tavern, Naxxramas, Flight to Duskwood, a Protoss base, a Heroes of the Storm arcade, and much more. It looks like it'll be a lot of fun for Blizzard fans.
