Blizzard is going to Gamescom 2017 and they have some juicy updates lined up for Overwatch and Hearthstone players.
A Brand New Map – Junkertown?
Overwatch players attending the convention can look forward to experiencing a brand new map at Blizzard’s booth. Remember the Junkertown leak? We think this might be it. The map will also be revealed via livestream for those of you who will miss the convention in Germany.
There’s also more! An Overwatch animated short will be taking place on Gamescom’s main stage and livestreamed on August 23. A bit of trivia: Blizzard presented the short called “The Last Bastion” in last year’s Gamescom.
Group Raids & Global Games Finals
Hearthstone players aren’t left in the dust for this one. Gamescom will give attendees a sneak peek at Fireside Gathering features, where they can gather in person with other Hearthstone players to collect the special Fireside Friends card, and join forces in a group raid against the Lich King.
Fans can also look forward to the Hearthstone Global Games Finals, which will take place on August 25 and 26. Don’t forget to choose your champion for a chance to win a free Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack – plus one more if your chosen team wins!
Watch The Reveal Live
If you, like us, can’t fly out to Germany for all this Blizzard goodness, fret not. You can catch the reveal live here on August 21, 9am SGT (18:00 CEST).
