Blizzard confirms BlizzCon will be a digital event next year

Blizzard have confirmed that they’ll be hosting BlizzCon as an online event due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The annual celebration of their games and communities was cancelled this year, with a suggestion that they’ll be holding it virtually in 2021. During a recent earnings call, Blizzard’s president J. Allen Brack confirmed that it will be happening “early 2021”.

Overwatch is back at the beach for another round of Summer Games

It's summer! Scotland might've missed the memo (my soaked jeans can attest to that), but at least Overwatch is willing and able to have some fun in the virtual sun. The Summer Games have returned to Blizzard's hero shooter, bringing in a fresh collection of hot beach looks - whether you're chilling by the pool or pushing that dang payload.

World Of Warcraft Classic begins the war to open Ahn’Qiraj today

Brought your bug repellant, adventurers? World Of Warcraft Classic is going back to Silithus to revisit the game's most notorious bug hunt. Today's update for the throwback MMO is preparing to re-open the lost Silithid empire of Ahn'Qiraj - which is to say that the long and arduous task of funding an army, piecing together an ancient staff worthy of a Scarab Lord, and knocking…

Who needs clothes to kill WoW Classic’s biggest dragon, anyway?

Onyxia, Broodmother of the Black Dragonflight. If you're a veteran World Of Warcraft player, that name will immediately conjure long-buried feelings of dread - from the precision play needed to take her down, to the hours spent grinding quests to even enter her lair. But Azeroth's scariest dragon seems to have lost her touch, as a band of 40 World Of Warcraft: Classic adventurers worked…

Overwatch adds orchestral flair (and a new skin) with Sigma’s Maestro Challenge

Oh, to ditch Overwatch's crude gunfights for a night at the opera. To push culture, not payloads. Capture hearts and souls, not control points. Ah, well, the latest challenge event for Blizzard's hero shooter might not be picking up a fiddle anything soon, but it will let you pretend you're the sort of person who frequents the concert hall with Sigma's Maestro Challenge - dressing…

World Of Warcraft Classic just booted over 74,000 bot accounts

World Of Warcraft Classic has a bot problem. Harking back to the days when MMOs required a hell of a lotta grind, Blizzard's throwback MMO is filled with folk looking for an easy out. Following a particularly nasty few months of scripted heroes, game-breaking exploits and a parade of Orcs marching against cheaters, this month saw the developers wipe the realms clean of over 74,000…

Call Of Duty: Warzone fires back at cheaters with mandatory 2FA

Call Of Duty: Warzone has a cheating problem. That much is clear. And like many other free-to-play games, part of that problem is that bans don't mean much when you can fire up a new account in seconds. To stop these particular miscreants from popping up again and again, Warzone has introduced mandatory 2FA on all new free accounts on PC.

Rumour: Diablo 2 is getting a remastered release this year

Hell might freeze over before we hear more about Diablo IV, but you might not have to wait too long before facing off with the devil once more. Emissaries from Hell (well, France) suggest that Blizzard are working on a remaster of Diablo II, reportedly summoning a modern rerelease of the series highlight by the end of the year.

Overwatch’s revamped chat wheel will finally let you say sorry

You know what you did. Your team knows what you did. That Reinhardt play was awful, but how are you supposed to express remorse? Open the chat box? Plug in a headset? Nonsense. Until now, Overwatch had absolutely no way of letting your team know you messed up. Today's PTR update changes everything, letting you customise your chat wheel with new voice commands to drive…

World Of Warcraft’s double-XP buff will now last until the next expansion’s pre-patch

Did this whole "being stuck inside" thing get you reinstalling World Of Warcraft again? No? Well, I'm proud of you. If you did fall back into the MMO (or never left), however, the next few months should be smooth sailing indeed. Blizzard this week announced that the Winds of Wisdom double-XP buff has been extended, and will now run until the pre-release update for WoW's…

Feature: An adventure with helicopters

Call Of Duty: Warzone’s mid-match missions are great, let me show you why

We've been fighting to be the last person standing for years now, so new battle royale games have to bring something fresh to the war table. After largely bouncing off Blackout, I didn't think I'd find that in Call Of Duty: Warzone. Then me and my friends found a helicopter and a Bounty Contract, and I was delighted to discover I was wrong.

World of Warcraft is doubling all XP gains to keep its players indoors

We all get those urges from time to time. You're stuck at home, the PC's right there. Surely it's time to start up another World of Warcraft character, right? Unfortunately, that temptation might be harder to resist this month. As an incentive for staying indoors and infection-free, Blizzard have let loose the Winds of Wison, an 100% experience boost for every Azerothian adventurer 'til April…

Overwatch’s new hero Echo is officially “coming soon”

Alright alright, you can stop speculating now because Blizzard have finally confirmed that the long-teased Echo will be Overwatch's next hero. Or, perhaps continue speculating because they've told us next to zilch about her. Although we've seen her pop up in previous animated shorts, today's very brief teaser does not much more than confirm that she's en-route to the game.

You can now go solo in Call Of Duty: Warzone

If your friends are all offline and you're tired of squading up with randoms, rejoice! You can now play solo in Call of Duty: Warzone. Solos mode will still have a total of 150 players dropping into Verdansk so you'll be trading squad support for even more competition. If you're into lone wolfing it, now is your time to shine.

Players are hurling rocks to win Call Of Duty: Warzone’s 1v1 Gulag

The 1v1 fights in Call Of Duty: Warzone's Gulag are meant to be a quick fight where eliminated players who win the standoff get a second chance to respawn with their team. Naturally, players are working on ways to better ensure victory, because they are clever little buggers. They've already figured out how to make the Gulag's "non-lethal" rocks deadly and learned to abuse the…

Overwatch revisits and remixes all three co-op Archives missions

Once more, it's time for the fine folks at Overwatch to put down their guns, stop shooting each other for a moment, pick up their guns again and go blast some robots and armoured goons. It's Archives time, team. With no new story to plug through this time, all three of Overwatch's co-op stories are coming back with wild new variations, alongside the requisite bucket…

Feature: I photoshopped fast food mascots into WW1 for this article.

An egg-hatched moustache man is crucial to Hearthstone now, and I might be losing my mind

Perhaps understandably, given that it's my job to attempt to stay up to date with PC games these days, I don't get to play all my favourites with quite the same regularity. Usually, that's fine - Civilization VI, for example, is always gonna be Civilization VI. Sometimes, it's even a bit of a boon - I'll return to something like Rimworld after a few months…

Diablo 4 previews its frantic family of cannibal monsters

We've not heard a heck of a lot about Diablo 4 since it was officially announced at BlizzCon last year. Blizzard have now published a development update—which they're hoping to do quarterly going forward—responding to feedback from the BlizzCon demo and introducing a nasty family of melee monsters. The update also gives a pretty in-depth look at a few pieces of Diablo 4's interface.
