For those itching to get their hands on the latest map for the hit Blizzard FPS Overwatch, the wait is over! Sort of. Blizzard World, the expansive map that is an epic homage to other popular Blizzard franchises such as StarCraft, Diablo, and Warcraft, is now live in the game’s Public Test Realm (PTR).
If you missed the initial announcement, you can check out the video below to try to catch all of the hidden (and not so hidden) Easter Eggs nestled within the newest Overwatch map. Perfect timing too as the newest hero, Moira, has just went live off of PTR and into the main game. Check out the debut trailer for Blizzard World in the trailer and check out how the hodgepodge of epicness plays out for yourself:
“An amusement park celebrating the universes of Warcraft, StarCraft, andDiablo, Blizzard World is a brand-new hybrid Assault/Escort map,” Blizzard said in the patch notes. “Charge the gates of Stormwind, sneak through the Nexus Experience, and guide the payload through areas filled with high ground, flanking routes, and environmental hazards. Grab some Blizzard-inspired snacks at the concession stand along the way!”
Navy Veteran with a penchant for the FPS genre, Chewy has all aspects of the gaming community covered. Don't expect to see him on a console any time soon, however - though he has experience in all platforms, the PC Master Race has a firm hold on him.
