Blizzard Showing New Hearthstone, Overwatch Content at PAX East
Heading to PAX East this year? Fan of Hearthstone or looking forward to Overwatch? Blizzard has some good news for you.
Blizzard is known for making big announcements at PAX East and this year seems like it will be no exception. On PAX's website, it was just revealed that there will be a day-one panel featuring Blizzard's Dustin Browder, Eric Dodds and Jeff Kaplan. In terms of content, Blizzard has chosen this event to be the home for two pretty huge announcements. At PAX East 2013, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft was announced and then a year later, at PAX EAST 2014, Hearthstone's Curse of Naxxramas add-on was announced. Hopefully this year will lead to another big Hearthstone announcement with one of the panelists, Eric Dodds, is the Game Director for the game.
However, it's also a good bet that since there are also panelists for Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch, Dustin Browder and Jeff Kaplan respectively, that there will be announcements for these games as well. It would be especially pertinent for these two games to get updates since they are two of Blizzard's upcoming games. Heroes of the Storm just recently went into closed beta testing a month ago. Overwatch, despite having a recent setback when trying to get a patent for its name, is set to go into closed beta testing sometime soon (early 2015), which also makes it a prime candidate for some big information dumps.
As it stands, we will just have to wait until Friday, March 6 at 10:30AM EST to see what, "Bold new heroes, exciting new cards, and epic new battlegrounds," will be released.
