Plenty of other announcements have been made so far during the opening of Blizzcon 2019. Overwatch 2 — which was probably one of Blizzard’s worst-kept secrets for this year’s BlizzCon — was officially announced and will feature four-player co-op Hero Missions, a new PvP core gameplay mode called “Push,” and a new graphics engine.
The next World of Warcraft expansion has also been revealed and it looks like players will be traveling back to Icecrown. Shadowlands will be available next year and bring tons of new places to explore in the large world of Azeroth. The trailer also mentions that you can “choose a covenant,” showing what looks like leaders of each of the four zones.
Diablo 4 finally made its appearance during the opening ceremony and is going back to the franchise’s “darker roots” with a first look at Lilith. Gameplay featuring the first three classes were also shown: Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid. Druid class will be coming back to Blizzard’s action RPG franchise fully capable of becoming a werebear and werewolf. Maps seem to have a bit more verticality as the barbarian attacked from a higher plateau to the ground below it. Diablo 4 will bring back PvP zones.
