World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm get into the seasonal spirit

‘Tis the season for so many Christmas events that you’ll have to forsake all family and tins of popcorn to get around to them all. Blizzard isn’t making it any easier on you, since pretty much all of its games are currently in the throes of holiday events.

World of Warcraft’s Feast of Winter Veil kicks off tomorrow with the traditional quests (say hi to the Abominable Greench for us!) and new holiday hats that can be found in dungeons. Overwatch is running its Winter Wonderland and challenging players to the new and ridiculous Yeti Hunt brawl.

Over at Heroes of the Storm, Winter Veil brings a quest chain with a special spray and mount as rewards. Then there’s Hearthstone, which is reskinning some of its game boards, tossing in seasonal emotes, and inviting players to a “Wacky Waxy Winter’s Veil” tavern brawl.

In non-event news, World of Warcraft had to delay an announcement of its 2018 plans but said that this info should be coming soon. And if you are deep into the new Hearthstone expansion, check out the following behind-the-scenes video of its making!

I often resub around Christmas just to see the holiday goings-on in Azeroth … but somehow I’m just not feeling it this year. Maybe for the Lunar Festival.

I’ll be coming back to WoW when they put the new leveling tech in so I can enjoy the story for once.

For me, the non-event news (well, baseless speculation actually but that passes for news IRL so why not in gaming)

Obviously, this is not of interest to most readers since he was probably on the ATVI earning call and thus, for inexplicable reasons, tainted. OTOH, D4 & OW2 seem … a tad aggressive.

WOT has brought back and improved their Christmas decorations event.

While WOWS’ Vampire! promotion feels more Halloween than Christmas.
