Overwatch’s massive new update, including “Blizzard World” and over 100 new cosmetic items, is now live

The biggest Overwatch update in quite a while is here.

Overwatch, Blizzard’s hugely popular team-based first person shooting game, is receiving its biggest update in quite a while today. First and foremost, the update includes a new map, dubbed “Blizzard World.” Blizzard World is essentially what Disney World would look like if it was themed around Blizzard properties like Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft. There’s a Hearthstone tavern, Orgrimmar and Stormwind facsimiles, and Diablo-style crypts to duke it out in.

In addition to the new map, over 100 new cosmetic items are being added to the game. Many of the new skins are based on the characters’ heritage — for instance, Hanzo gets a traditional kabuki-style skin, while Asp-Pharah celebrates her Egyptian heritage. Others, like D.Va’s black cat skin, is just plain awesome. Some, in conjunction with Blizzard World’s release, will be themed around other Blizzard properties.

Every character will receive new items, ranging from skins to emotes, sprays, and more. All of the new content is available on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 starting today.
