Blizzcon 2019 came with a big bash and left with an even bigger bash. The event is considered one of the most epic gatherings of gamers from around the globe. This is where new friendships are molded, and passion comes to life. The gaming fraternity couldn’t help but wallow in a weekend filled with cosplay, camaraderie, and competition.
But the most noteworthy aspect of Blizzcon 2019 is the lineup of games that were announced. Let’s give you a quick Blizzcon recap and throw some light on the games that were revealed at the gathering:
Diablo IV is the latest incarnation of the action role-playing genres that the community has come to love. The game is set many years after everything that unfolded in Diablo III. After the fall of the Black Soulstone, the conquest of the Prime Evil, and the fall of Malthael, the Angel of Death, several lives were lost, and the inhabitants of Sanctuary find themselves fighting through the darkest of ages.
With a fully open world, the game will allow players to explore five distinctively dangerous regions in any sequence they want, all connected seamlessly for uninterrupted journeys. New hellish features, deadly challenges, and an incontestable return to dark ages form the core of the game. Take a glimpse of the game through the trailer here.
Another much-loved and anticipated game launched at Blizzcon was Overwatch 2. This is a globe-spanning sequel based on the original game’s battle-honed foundation and takes forward everything players have earned into a new realm of fierce competition and team play.
In addition to combating many rivals in PvP modes, the game will allow players to explore the Overwatch universe firsthand. The best part: they can do so in whole new ways in fully co-op missions that require the world’s heroes to form teams, power up, and combat a devastating outbreak of threats around the world. You can check out the trailer of the game to know what it entails for you.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands
The next expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, was announced at Blizzcon. Sylvanas Windrunner, the fallen chief of the Horde, has brought together Azeroth and the realm of the dead—something that sets a series of events in motion.
These occurrences threaten to upset the cosmic balance between life and death. Azeroth’s heroes will face the wonders and horrors of the afterlife as they deal with the repercussions of Sylvanas’ deeds. You can check out the trailer here to know more.
Decent of Dragons
Lastly, Blizzcon unveiled the Decent of Dragons, which is Hearthstone’s latest expansion. The game takes the combat between the League of E.V.I.L. and the League of Explorers to a new level above Dragonflight.
As Dalaran continues streaking across the skies of Azeroth, it now bears a deadly payload. It looks like that not all Plagues were controlled in Uldum.
Also, Rafaam intends to leverage this bounty of thievery to reincarnate a great power that was thought to be long-defeated.
Blizzcon 2019 saw the launch of some exceptional games that the gaming fraternity has been anticipating for long. Here’s a quick recap of what was unveiled at the event.
