Overwatch has been going strong since it first released in 2016 with regular updates and new content such as new characters, maps, and more, and now fans of the game will get to explore a whole new side of the massively popular shooter with the upcoming Blizzard World map.

Blizzard has announced that the upcoming Blizzard World map will have its “grand opening” in Overwatch on January 23, with the new map to provide a colorful take celebrating Blizzard’s legacy of games in the shooter.

Specifically, the new map will pull inspiration from many of Blizzard’s franchises including DiabloStarCraft, and Warcraft, and will also include a slew of brand new skins for players to unlock based on those franchises. As a fan of Blizzard’s games for quite some time, personally I’m very much looking forward to unlocking a lot of the new skins that will be available and to check out what fun is in store in the Blizzard World map.

Overwatch is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC – for a closer look at the brand new skins coming to Overwatch based on past Blizzard titles, you can check out a video featuring some of the cosmetics in action.
