Overwatch 1 and 2 players will play "side by side"

Blizzcon came and went over the weekend with three major announcements- Diablo IV, Overwatch 2 and a new WoW expansion.

"Our artists are heartbroken: They take such care to make the art look handsome, and then we get some crappy version of what the art looks like ... and then people are like, "I don't know it doesn't look that good" and we're like, no it does, it looks awesome!"

"We know leaks happen", Kaplan told Kotaku Australia. With Heaven gates locked after Diablo took the battle to it, humanity has suffered greatly.

This particular slice of hopelessness happens right when Lilith makes her triumphant return. The open world and shared world concepts were explained in more detail. What we all know thus far is that there are 4 new maps within the pipeline alongside a brand new hero that'll launch earlier than Sojourn.

Dungeons are still randomised, and exterior dungeons are randomised as well. Parts of the game will still be private, such as dungeons, but you'll come across other adventurers in the overworld. The Druid will be able to transform from human to werewolf or werebear, and has access to Earth and Storm magic. However, Diablo III did have an offline option on console, so you'd be forgiven for thinking that the follow-up might follow suit.

Diablo 4 has been confirmed as coming out on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with no current talk of Switch support. Competition is fierce, with games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, League of Legends, Dota 2, and so forth all drawing eyeballs, but Overwatch remains hugely popular with a large fan base. One of the new additions to the game will be WoW-style mounts. This means that it will be permanently featured on the Quick Play and Competitive menus alongside standard ones like Payload. All Push maps will be symmetrical, with the winning team being determined by who can push their robot to their objective in the fastest time. Suddenly players were learning about what a hero's childhood was like, or their sexual orientation, all of which built them up to be so much more than a skin and a set of skills to be used in one of Overwatch's game modes.

Overwatch 2 actually features a deep story campaign that can be played solo or with up to four friends.

A second cinematic trailer was shown, this time to introduce Overwatch 2!
