BlizzCon 2017 Announcements

Starting to see some of the new announcements coming in from BlizzCon 2017. Going to touch on a few.

Overwatch

A new DPS healer called Moira is going to be added along with a new Blizzard Park themed map. I’m always nervous about playing a healer, so I can’t say I’m as excited. Will definitely check out the character in training mode. Never know, might just end up playing a healer. However, definitely want to play the new Blizzard Park themed map. Add on the new skins themed after StarCraft, WarCraft, and Diablo that can be found in standard loot boxes, I’ll definitely be dedicating some time with these new additions.

StarCraft II

Good news for those who haven’t played StarCraft II at all with Wings of Liberty going Free-to-Play. For those that already have it and none of the other expansions will also get Heart of the Storm for free, just as long as you login and claim it between November 8 and December 8.

Hearthstone

A new expansion for Hearthstone was announced called Kobolds & Catacombs. While the expansion does add new cards for the main game, it also includes a new Single-Player mode call Dungeon Run. For someone who isn’t the biggest at playing multiplayer, this is welcoming addition. To make it even better (at least for me), the single-player mode doesn’t require you to actually have any cards.  You start off with 10 cards and the goal is to fight through 8 random bosses out of a pool of 48. After each win, you are presented with a loot pile that will include cards that you can pick from to strengthen your deck. If you lose, you start over from scratch. Definitely going to give this a shot as soon as it is released.
