Diablo III is getting three more difficulty levels

I remember the pain (read: amazingness) of Diablo III's Inferno mode, pre-nerf. Solo I managed to make it to the final boss of Act 2 before they nerfed it, but I did like the difficulty reworks in general. 2.4.2 looks to be more of the good...   read

Heroes of the Storm developers talk hero balance and map design

As you may have seen, Auriel is set to debut in Heroes of the Storm in the near future, and she looks like one interesting, and technical addition. So that got me thinking -- how does the team approach balancing, should she turn into a...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Auriel looks to be the most technical support yet

I had a chance to sit with Blizzard and chat about Heroes of the Storm's upcoming Auriel, and she seems to be in really good hands. Although Medivh is a specialist that has undertones of a support, a true healer hasn't been added since Octo...   read

Blizzard: 'We're looking at adding even more from Overwatch' to Heroes of the Storm

A little over three months ago, Blizzard transplanted Overwatch's Tracer into Heroes of the Storm. Although she came in with an astronomical winrate that was one of the highest in the history of the game she's been balanced since then,...   read

Overwatch console update adds Ana, nerfs Torbjorn and Symmetra

With the PC patch already taken care of, Blizzard has now added Ana, Overwatch's new sniping support character, to the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (though not without some bugs). The full list of changes should look familiar if you c...   read

Overwatch's newest hero Ana is now available on PC

It has been exactly a week since Blizzard revealed Overwatch's newest hero: Ana, the sniper who shoots people in the goddamn face to heal them. For some reason, I figured that meant we had a month 'til she'd be playable, but she just w...   read

Man Murlocs are great. Their ridiculous rallying cry is equal parts cute and terrifying, and I'm ready and willing to accept any and all of their additions to the Warcraft series. That includes the new Hearthstone hero Morgl (a Shaman)...   read

Overwatch's Ana feels like a true sniper, and a welcome addition to the game

We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today. Yes, if you're so inclined, you can boot up your Battle.net client right...   read

Overwatch's new hero will be revealed at or before San Diego Comic-Con

It looks like the next Overwatch hero will be a sniping support
