Blizzard has finally revealed the release date for the highly awaited Blizzard World map update. This update brings with it a new map and many new skins added to the base game’s loot boxes. January 23rd is the day we can expect to visit Blizzard World.
Epic memories can only be made in an epic world…
So, grab a ticket & join us for the GRAND OPENING of Blizzard World!

The Blizzard World map is filled with references to Blizzard’s many other games and franchises, among them being Starcraft, World of Warcraft, and Hearthstone. Loot box skins follow the same theme, giving many characters new skins based on other characters.
Hopefully a new announcement will come on the day of release, potentially showing off more future content for the base game or the next seasonal event which is the Chinese New Year.
Overwatch is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
