Overwatch's Blizzard World Map Has Its Grand Opening on January 23

Check out our guide to Overwatch League.

A great thing about this new map is that it not only belongs to the characters and the world found in Overwatch but also has various additions inspired by popular Blizzard properties like Warcraft and Starcraft.

Earlier today, Blizzard confirmed that Blizzard World will be available on January 23.

First revealed at BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard World is a digital Disneyland-esque amusement park, with rides and attractions based on Blizzard games.

So, grab a ticket & join us for the GRAND OPENING of Blizzard World!

Two Americans, two Canadians kidnapped in Nigeria
Two German archaeologists were seized at gunpoint a year ago less than 100 kilometres northeast of Abuja and later freed unharmed. Global Affairs Canada spokesman John Babcock said Canadian officials were aware that two citizens were reportedly abducted.

So far we know that skins are coming for Doomfist, Mei, Orissa, Reinhardt, Butcher, Torbjorn, Widowmaker and Zarya.

Next week's Overwatch patch brings over a hundred new cosmetic items, including skins, sprays, player icons, emotes and more.

As we previously reported, Blizzard World is a hybrid map - so just like King's Row and Numbani, it starts with a control point before becoming a payload escort mission - created to look like an amusement theme park which pulls from Blizzard classics like Warcraft, Starcraft, Lost Vikings, Diablo, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone and more.

Only 6 more days until our cosmetics update arrives in Overwatch!

The year 2018 has just begun but the developers of Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment is already ready to release new content to keep players engaged in their highly competitive environment.
