New Overwatch map: Blizzard World

Blizzard World is now open to the public! Overwatch’s brand-new hybrid Assault/Escort map is set in an amusement park celebrating the Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo universes. Charge the gates of Stormwind, sneak through the Nexus Experience, and guide the payload through areas filled with high ground, flanking routes, and environmental hazards. Blizzard World is playable on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

In addition to the new map, we’re expanding our core cosmetics collection to include over 100 new items—including skins, sprays, player icons, emotes, and more—for all 26 heroes. Starting today, you’ll be able to earn these cosmetics in standard Loot Boxes as well as unlock them via the Hero Gallery all year long.

The following skins will be included in the update:

Legendary Skins:

  • Blackhand Doomfist
  • Black Cat D.Va
  • Kabuki Hanzo
  • Asp Pharah
  • Capoeira Lúcio
  • Ecopoint: Antarctica Mei
  • Immortal Orisa
  • Crusader Reinhardt
  • Butcher Roadhog
  • Magni Torbjörn
  • Nova Widowmaker
  • Barbarian Zarya

Epic Skins:

  • Caution Junkrat
  • Royal McCree
  • Hellfire Reaper
  • Peacock Symmetra
  • Carbon Fiber Zenyatta
