WoW sells charity pet for hurricane relief, plus more on Overwatch’s Junkertown & Hearthstone’s Oktoberbrawl

We’ve got a fun roundup of Blizzard’s doings, so let’s get started! The studio is selling a new “Shadow” fox pet with adorably huge ears for $10 in World of Warcraft’s cash shop. So why is this special? Because the studio is donating all profits to charity to benefit the victims of the current hurricane season.

“For every Shadow pet purchased between September 12, 2017 and December 31, 2017, 100% of the adoption fee will be split equally between American Red Cross Disaster Relief and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Disaster Relief Fund to assist with relief efforts around the world,” the studio said.

Moving on to Overwatch, the devs are busy putting the final touches on the game’s newest map. Junkertown is coming on September 19th to all platforms, but you can get a preview of the map right now.

And even though it’s only September, Oktoberbrawl has broken out in Hearthstone. Twitch Prime members can get two free card backings as part of the event’s promotion:

Here are a few other ways you can help the victims of Harvey and Irma:

Don’t usually pick up the pets but if its going to go towards the Hurricane Relief then I may need to pick one up, or likely two, if I get one the misses will want one as well hah.

Not the first time they’ve done this. Argi was 100% for Ebola relief in 2014. Google tells me Argi raised $1.9 million. That’s a lot of $10 sales. Hopefully this little guy will sell even more. The devastation from floods and cyclones around the world this year is massive.
