    Blizzcon 2019 Thread

    **** it, lets get a thread going.

    Likely Announcements

    Diablo 4
    Next WoW Expansion
    OverWatch 2
    Hearthstone Expansion

    Possible Project Updates

    Diablo Immortal
    Warcraft Reforged
    Diablo 2 HD remaster


    A new info leak on Diablo 4 also debunks the fps rumor.

    https://twitter.com/ZhugeEX/status/1189847213519847429?

    According to Industry insider ZhugeEX says this leak lines up with what he's heard about the game.

    This lines up with everything I've heard about Diablo IV.

    The game is shaping up well and is definitely what fans would want out of the game. Takes what people loved about D2 style, improves on D3 combat.

    Yeah but all the new announced games will only be sold in China so who cares, plus from next year Blizzcon will take place from Blizzard's new headquarters in Shanghai

    Wise of Blizzard. You wont get anything bad said while in China and you can pretty much shut out any real criticism , and again, the vast majority of the fan base will buy whatever Blizzard shovels onto their plate. /shrug.

    So there is a liberate Hong Kong protest outside the entrance handing out t-shirts with Mei on them and waving Hong Kong flags.

    And a lot of Winnie the Poohs:

    Hah, poor Jeff coming out to announce Overwatch 2 and having to admit the internet already did it for him.

    The redesigned art style for the new one is interesting.

    Good to see you can play the original along with players of the new one, whilst getting all the new content too (so not splitting the player base). And the fact you can bring all your character unlocks across to the new game.

    It looks like an expansion pack to Overwatch

    I don't understand why it's a new game?

    hopefully the story lasts longer, diablo 3 was way too short and relied on replaying the game over and over again to flesh it out

    And the extended cinematic trailer. Will watch again properly tonight, lights out, full volume, hand lotion, kleenex.



    Blizzard know trailers.

    D4 cinematic looked awesome but the gameplay looked like reskinned D3 in places.

    Also announced it's not coming anytime soon.

    imo the game will be held back again trying to cater to console play/ers.

    gameplay footage looked ok. Not a big difference between D3 and this. Compared to PoE we will have to have a better look when it actually comes out. PoE still has time to compete then.

    I'm really confused by the overwatch 2 announcement. If all the new maps are gonna be playable in overwatch 1 whats the point of the sequel? I guess its really for those who want more story and lore? And of course they didn't give us a release date for D4. Its probably years away. so its hard to get excited for it even though it looks great.

    New game modes mostly by the look of it.
    Confused by people giving it shit tbh. After all of the bullshit gamers have spouted about how "evil" Blizzard is or that they're only about getting as much money as possible, this is about as gamer friendly as you can get.
    OG players can play on the new maps with new characters with Ow2 players. Without buying the new game.
    All cosmetics and unlocks are taken over to Ow2.
    I mean, seriously who does that?

    Wait what? That has to be one of the silliest ideas blizzard has ever come up with

    "Unheard of." It's the direction the MP games landscape has been going for the last couple years, i.e. not dividing playerbases with premium map packs; breaking down artificial barriers with system cross-play and/or cross-progression. This game is a glorified expansion pack, this is just the natural extension of the Games as a Service model. Nickel and diming with cosmetics is generally accepted as a consumer friendly enough way to monetise PvP games.

    As an Overwatch player from day one, I have no problem with it. There are plenty of people who wanted more lore and PVE, so it satisfies them and everyone else that just wanted more PVP content and support for the original game are getting it without having to pay a cent more.

    But is D4 gonna have 8 man parties like D2 or will it just be 4 ?

    the more details that keep coming out about d4 the worse it looks like it's going to be..

    seems like they are doubling down on some of the things that made d3 shit e.g itemisation, no trading (1 hr limit if someone was in your game at the time is not trade), no pvp (arena or brawls are not pvp) etc

    l o l

    if that is truely the case then the game will pretty much be DOA as it doesn't have d2 to sell all it's copies
