Blizzard has been taking good care of their games in the past 2 weeks, making sure that everything is set and ready to go for all players across all franchises. As usual, Blizz is looking to keep their old players and attract new ones with more interesting features and jaw-dropping mechanics. If you are a Blizzard fan but you decided to put off gaming for a short while, it is time you joined to community again.
Before we go on, we might have some interesting news feed for you: the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket is out of the taking right now, but if you really want to get an extra treat for being one of the most awesome gaming company’s number one fan, you can purchase a Goody Bag for $34.99. And don’t tell anybody else, but you might get to play Overwatch if you are heading to Europe this October. Remember not to tell anybody!
We are going to start slowly with Diablo III: patch 2.3.0 got released on the 26th last week and it already got a good number of players roaming through the Ruins of Sescheron to reach their most desired reward: Kanai’s Cube. The Cube offers an outstanding number of new features such as giving your character the properties from a Legendary item. It looks like there’s going to be a lot of grinding going on this season.
The Grand Tournament hit Hearthstone at the start of last week, bringing 130 more cards to the battlefield and the Joust mode. Again, grinding seems to be our most reliable tool for getting all those cards stacked in our decks as soon as possible.
And did we mention Heroes of the Storm? Yes, the MOBA masked as a “Hero Brawler” has also received a significant update bringing Kharazim the monk to the Nexus and the new placement matches which Blizz claim will help matchmaking significantly. But we all know better right? In the meantime, Starcraft 2 is also receiving balance updates, also having introduced the new 3v3 and 6v6 Automated Tournaments.
And, at last, good old World of Warcraft is going to be receiving patch 6.2.2 tomorrow. This might bring joy to Azeroth’s population as the 6.2 hotfixes were not nearly enough to compensate for the bugs and other inconveniences. There are a lot of events coming up in September, so new players will come back to bolster Azeroth’s forces.
As mentioned before, if you let your Blizzard games gather some dust, you’d better polish it off because the games sure have a lot of new features that you might be dying to look into.
