Hearthstone applies updates to Battlegrounds and Arenas, Overwatch releases a new novel


We’re pulling together the news from Hearthstone and Overwatch together into their own combined story simply because they’re kind of teeny on their own while still worth some notice. Just assume that Winston and Junkrat are playing some card games together if you want to mentally combine both titles in one. That’s a fun image to think about, isn’t it?

In Hearthstone, the game’s latest patch has applied a few general updates to Battlegrounds and Arenas, tweaking some quest completion requirements and rewards along with armor tier updates in the former mode, and fixing a bug and increasing glass card appearance in the latter.

As for Overwatch, this news is less about the game and more about a new novel released this week: Overwatch 2: Sojourn, which tells the origin story of Sojourn and her fight against the Omnics alongside several members of the Overwatch team.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees unionize and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2022, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
