Potential Android System Requirements

by JR Cook on

Briefly today on the Battle.net support site, some visitors noticed that the Android system requirements had been posted. It appears they have been removed now but both Reddit and Hearthpwn are reporting on what was there. Now, I’m going to say this probably isn’t a final list and it might not even be an accurate list but here’s what is being reported on those 2 sites: Minimum Hardware Specs Screen: 6-Inch or larger OS: Android 4.0 or later Memory: 1GB Verified Devices (They run Hearthstone well) Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6 (2014) Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 (2014) Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 (2013) Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 (2014) Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (2014) Asus Google Nexus 7 Huawei MediaPad X1 NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Samsung Galaxy Note LTE 10.1 N8020 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro ...

Following closely on yesterday’s more modest updates, World of Warcraft 6.0.3 has been hotfixed to address class balance as more players trickle into the endgame. Several classes have had skills buffed with only a few nerfs. Update (11/26): More hotfixes were added later in the day. The blue post below has been updated to reflect this. You can find the updates listed below. See the official blog post for the complete notes. Also–while we’re talking about updates–be sure to check out the new Blood Elf model preview! November 25 Update 2, Other Hotfixes: 6:00pm PST Garrisons, Followers, and Outposts Item rewards received from a Garrison invasion now have a chance to be Warforged, contain a socket, or tertiary stats.

A new Official Blog Post has revealed two more class cards, both Ogres, one for the Rogue and one for the Shaman.  These cards are similar to the previously revealed Ogre Warmaul, as they share the following ability: “50% Chance to Attack the Wrong Enemy” This ability is clearly negative, but it allows the Ogres to have better stats than they would usually have at that mana cost. In fact, they are looking quite tasty. But is the trade-off worth it? I can’t wait to try this out these Ogres and see if they can bash some skulls in. Are you excited for these dudes? Sound off on the comment section!...

As you are likely well aware by now, Season 2 is available for preview and play on the Patch 2.1.2 Test Realm right now. Along with the fully functioning test also comes the ability to preview next season’s Conquests and get some practice in on executing them as quickly as possible for when the real deal goes down on live. So, what are the new Conquests? Here’s a picture preview of each taken directly from the PTR moments ago: As you can see, some of the ideas from the Season 1 Conquests came back, but in reimagined form, with only Divinity/Lionhearted being the true returner. It’s simply scaled up to Greater Rift 35 due to the rebalancing of Greater Rifts for Patch 2.1.2 after you reach Greater Rift 25. If you were planning on getting a leg (not a Legendary) up on the competition by plotting out strategies for these during ...

We have a variety of new and exciting skins in development, as well as a festive new mount!

Tracer Statue Available for Pre-order

by matticus on

A statue of Overwatch hero Tracer is now available from the Blizzard store for pre-order! She’ll set you back a cool $150. The base of the statue has the option of coming with an illuminated Overwatch logo. You can see her in a classic mid stride as she’s in gunning form. Sculpted by Senior Sculptor Brian Fay and painted by Senior Illustrator Laurel Austin, you can really notice the care and attention that was given to really capture Tracer’s personality. The figure measures 10.5″ (or 26.67 cm) from floor to head and it includes an AC adapter with a battery option. Alas, it does not come with batteries. These statues are expected to ship sometime in February 2015. She looks awesome! Can’t wait until I get one of these!...

 

The Edge: The Post BlizzCon Depression

by matticus on

Episode 39: The Post BlizzCon Depression! We’re back from BlizzCon! Two days of fun action and games while hanging out with some of our favourite personalities from around the community. The big news coming out of BlizzCon is Blizzard’s new game, Overwatch. Along with that, we received new information and updates for Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, and Starcraft 2. Nothing new this year from Diablo 3 or World of Warcraft. The hype is real! And it is here! Unfortunately, no KT this week for us on the show as she had other obligations to attend to. Overwatch Overwatch: Matt’s First Impressions Will and Sean both are excited! Sean managed to get in six games over two days. Looks like his hero of choice is Tracer! Hearthstone The Goblins vs Gnomes expansion is here and it is way closer to release than expected! Blizzard is aiming for a December release ...

 

I want to focus first on the cinematic experience for Overwatch, since it literally brought me to tears when I was watching it this morning on the show floor. Rumor has it that Blizzard’s Cinematics guys have been rubbing elbows with Pixar lately, and if that’s true it really demonstrates what Nick Carpenter and his team can do when they glom onto a style and run with it. The anime-influenced style is definitely something that you wouldn’t normally associate with Blizzard, but this cinematic changes all of that. From the 2D elements in the first part of the video to the six different characters in play throughout the fight itself, this is a brighter, crisper and more fluid kind of animation than we’ve ever seen out of them before, and it looks amazing. Moreover, as a cinematic that gives you a very strong impression of what the game itself looks ...

BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders can rest easy if they haven't gotten the chance to purchase any Blizzard swag yet. New goodies are now on sale on the Blizzard Gear Store through November 11....

Blizzard announced a brand new IP for the first time in seventeen years. Overwatch is a significant departure for Blizzard Entertainment and as such if you were to sit down and play this without knowing if was a Blizzard game, you’d have a hard time really knowing it was. This is a whole new world that lacks Orcs, Terran’s, or a Reaper of Souls. The first thing that comes to mind from the trailer is Team Fortress 2, and this wouldn’t be too far off from the feeling I got from the game. But along that line, it has that Blizzard polish that they are so well known with this game having the variety and amount of classes so far looks to lend some depth and variety this genre. One thing I also noticed during the trailer and gameplay is this feels like a very family friendly game. The game doesn’t seem ...

 

Legacy of Void Details Emerge

by Neinball on

The long awaited conclusion to the Starcraft II trilogy is finally here. Today we’ve finally gotten our first look at the Legacy of the Void. The campaign will focus around Artanis and his quest to take back the protoss homeworld of Auir and to stop the looming threat of the Xel’naga. In single player story you’ll command the Spear of Auir, a massive warship, that will allow you to use a super weapon during missions that has the ability to wipe out entire armies. Multiplayer In addition to the single player content, there will be new additions to the multiplayer and eSports side of the game. It seems you’ll be able to play LoftV without Wings of Liberty or Heart of Swarm, but we don’t have details yet on how that will work in terms of multiplayer modes or story modes. We have three new play modes being added in: ...
