Starcraft 2

Allied Commanders is coming soon as part of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, bringing with it a variety of open-ended cooperative experiences to explore and conquer’

Co-op PvE Starcraft – looks like another new way to draw people into the game and also give the game extra longevity outside of Standard Multiplayer. Nice feature we think!


Heroes of the Storm

New heroes and new battleground have been annouced!

New BG : Infernal Shrines

“Infernal Shrines is a three-lane Diablo-themed Battleground featuring three shrines that will periodically gather power. Teams can unleash this power by activating a shrine, defeating its guardians, and summoning a devastating Punisher to fight for them. These powerful bosses will spawn with one of three deadly affixes—Arcane, Frozen, or Mortar— and will hunt down nearby enemy Heroes as well as pushing the lane closest to their shrine.”

They added the lovely arcane spell that everyone loves in Diablo (if you got the item that makes you immune)


Hearthstone

New mechanic in Hearthstone, Jousting. New ranked rewards and new cards!

 

Episode 29: The Pre-Blizzcon Show

“This is the Pre-Blizzcon Show – and we will talk about a lot of stuff we know nothing about yet; including hopes and predictions.”


Hearthstone

Blizzard have been busy banning accounts the past few weeks. People who have been botting or win trading have been banned and Blizzard have thereby promoted fair play and no cheating in Hearthstone.

There’s some speculations to what the new Hearthstone expansion will contain and the recent trademarking of Eye of Azshara has been stirring up some more speculations.


World of Warcraft

Together with the launch of the oceanic World of Warcraft servers there also was an Q&A which brought up topics as new blood elf models, server delay and the future of dungeons.


General Blizzard

Geoff Kneighley, the host of the Blizzcon live stream, has been teasing us saying we should look forward to the opening ceremony for Blizzcon. Personally I’m hoping for an announcement of Overwatch, whatever that might be.


Last Orders

Blizzard have promoted the Podcast(ish) youtube channel about the Nerdlords of Draenor. I found it really entertaining and cool with a new take on how you can do a podcast. They play through the WoD dungeons/starting zone so beware of spoilers!
