If those initial announcements from BlizzConline 2021 is not enough, Blizzard has other game updates to keep its fans interested. With World of Warcraft, Blizzard detailed more about The Burning Crusade Classic, which is a remaster of the first WoW expansion.
Throughout the course of the launch, the remaster will bring over features found on the OG 2007 version that include The Shattered Realm of Outland, two new playable races (blood elves and draenei), Gather at the Arena Gates PvP mode, Flying mounts in Outland, and new hero options.
With the rollout of Burning Crusade Classic, WoW players have two options: to progress to the Burning Crusade era along with the rest of the Horde and Alliance heroes on their realm, or to continue adventuring in the original WoW Classic content on all-new Classic Era servers. As for the rollout, Blizzard will be kicking off a beta test for Burning Crusade Classic, calling players to give their feedback and share their experience to ensure a good balance between authenticity and enjoyment.
Going over at Overwatch, Blizzard gave a new featurette on Overwatch 2, previewing new locations that include Rome and New York City, along with updated looks for select heroes from the OG version like McCree and Pharah.
The featurette also previewed new Null sector enemies like Stalker and Breacher, and updated progression system for customizing heroes’ abilities, and an update on Story and Hero missions. Players got a look at all of these, along with the behind-the-scenes in developing Overwatch 2.
As for players of the OG Overwatch, the Year of the Ox event is ongoing until February 25, where players can enjoy themed skins and an all-new Bounty Hunter Brawl. The latter is an 8-player brawl where the player who scores the first kill becomes the Target, while the rest become Bounty Hunters tasked with taking them out.
