Overwatch’s BlizzardWorld map and skin bonanza are live

As I type this, my husband is sitting in an Overwatch queue grumbling over “unexpected server error occurred”: Yep, it’s a Blizzard patch day!

Assuming you folks can defeat the login server boss, you’ll eventually be treated to the long-awaited and wonderfully goofy BlizzardWorld map (access it straight off by playing in arcade mode). As originally teased at BlizzCon 2017, the map is effectively a themepark stuffed full of artifacts and settings from Blizzard’s multiple franchises – in fact, it pretty much looks like a partial replica of Stormwind with rollercoasters. May as well re-use those assets, right?

Blizz is also touting “over 100 new items” and a mech-ton of legendary and epic skins, including Black Cat D.Va. I will never see my husband again. Sizzle reel inc!

I like the skins, but I don’t really main any of those heroes. Also, the map isn’t half as fun as its concept.

Holy some of those skins are pretty damn amazing. And the new map is super fun. Good times all around!

PS. Mercy/Junk changes are not in yet from what i can see..

Is the Nova skin for Widowmaker? The article I saw didn’t have descriptions.

Most of those skins and almost every new spray screams JPOP/Anime culturally inspired.

These skins are god-damn amazing and make me actually want to come back to the game for the first time in over a year -_-
