Unveiled during last year's BlizzCon, Blizzard World is a Disney-flavored cornucopia of fun that features elements of all of Blizzard's best-known games, including World of Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, Hearthstone, Vikings, and Blackthorne. (Okay, probably not Blackthorne, but it would be cool to see it thrown in somewhere.)
I wouldn't be surprised to see a fresh trailer come our way some time prior to the launch but for now, the rollout date is all we've got. So take a minute instead to catch up with the first week of the Overwatch League—we've got a look at the best plays of week one right here—or refresh your memory with the Blizzard World announcement trailer below.
