    Vicarious Visions Absorbed by Blizzard

    They are now fully dedicated to Blizzard games moving forward.

    Activision Blizzard announced today that they have merged their Vicarious Visions studio from Activision over to Blizzard. This news comes courtesy of GI.biz.

    This means that going forward, Vicarious Vision's team of about 200 people will be considered employees of Blizzard. They will be "full dedicated to existing Blizzard games and initiatives." In other words, Vicarious Visions will no longer be...

    Battle.net Gets a Fresh Visual Makeover

    Different? Yes. Nicer? That's up to you to decide.

    Chances are, if you have played a Blizzard or Activision title in the past few years, you have done so through the Battle.net launcher game client of theirs. This hub for all things Blizzard has been more or less the same for about the past eight or so years now. However, that all is starting to change today with the launch of Battle.net 2.0.

    It is a fairly drastic change for the client, especially if you have gotten used...

    Ovewatch is Free for Two Weeks

    That's a lot of time to play.

    Tis the season for deals and freebies and Overwatch seems to be no exception to this rule. Blizzard has just made Overwatch a free-to-play title from now until January 4. That is almost two full weeks of hero action blasting rootin' shootin' fun that you can have.

    Usually, Overwatch is only free for a weekend or so but this is almost two weeks of freebie here. The Overwatch free trial offers full access to the game. There are no limitations...

    Naxxramas Raid Now Live in World of Warcraft Classic

    It's 2006 all over again.

    The massive end-game Naxxramas raid is now live in World of Warcraft Classic. The 40-person raid can be found floating above the Plaguelands. Just like the original release of the raid, this one includes battles across four separate wings that are full of bosses, all of which eventually lead to the final fight in the central area.

    Rewards include nine-piece raid sets for each class. These sets include special bonuses when you equip 2/4/6/8 pieces...

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Dated for November 23

    Less than a month away.

    Love them or hate them, Blizzard has been hard at work developing the latest expansion for World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands was delayed back in early October of this year. At the time we had no idea when the new release date would be, but we now know.

    November 23, 2020 at 3PM (PT) is when Shadowlands will be released. For those of you in Europe, that release time is November 24 at 12AM (CET). ...

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Delayed

    Pre-patch also pushed out to October 13.

    Blizzard just said that World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, the next major expansion for their still popular MMORPG, has been delayed. It has been pushed back now until "later this year" with a solid release date not yet revealed. As is typical for these sorts of delays, the delay was an "incredibly difficult decision for the team" but they ultimately feel as though it was the "right decision for the game--and for (the)...

    Blizzard to Drop Fee for Changing Gender in World of Warcraft

    Change will come with Shadowlands.

    Currently, players need to plunk down a not-insignificant amount of money if they wish to change the gender and appearance of their character in World of Warcraft. That current fee is $15 (USD), but it will soon be made free. This is according to a new report from Eurogamer that says Blizzard will make this change when the Shadowlands expansion releases later this year.

    In an interview with Eurogamer, Blizzard executive producer John...

    BlizzCon 2020 Officially Cancelled, Online Event Planned for Early 2021

    Online event tentatively planned for early 2021.

    In a move that is probably the least surprising one in this hell that we call "2020," Blizzard has officially announced that this year's BlizzCon event is cancelled. It's not gone entirely, but the event itself will be online only for the first time ever.

    Saralyn Smith, executive producer of BlizzCon delivered today's unfortunate news in a posting that explains how the decision to cancel the in-person event was...

    Schrodinger's Blizzcon 2020

    BlizzCon 2020 both exists and does not exist.

    Blizzard has apparently been getting slammed by fans wondering if BlizzCon 2020 will still even happen this year. As there have already been countless other events that have been postponed or outright cancelled due to Covid-19, this isn't exactly a weird thing to be wondering even if the event is commonly held in November. It's been a wild year so far with absolutely anything and everything being a possibility at this point.

    ECHO! Echo! echo! echo. echo...

    Blizzard just officially revealed their latest Overwatch Hero addition today. The new character is named Echo and is "an evolutionary robot programmed with a rapidly adapting artificial intelligence." This character has a name and an origin story and not much else.

    Blizzard says that Echo is "coming soon" to the game. This presumably means it will be coming first to public testing and then to the general public, as these...

    Fans Rightfully Angered by Pathetic Warcraft 3: Reforged Launch

    Where to even begin.

    Yesterday, Blizzard launched the somewhat awaited Warcraft 3: Reforged, a remaster of the original Warcraft but with enhanced visuals. In what should have been a day of joy amongst fans was instead a day of anger, disappointment, and harsh criticism from the community.

    The most apparent issue with the game are seen in the blatant visual downgrades from what was shown off in hands-on playable builds from the past year. Multiple discussions about this...
