The map will also introduce a new mode dubbed, “Battle Royale,” which will feature a massive four player team, one of the largest playlists in the game and the largest Zombies map in the franchise. This new mode will also allow players to bring an arsenal of weapons to the battlefield.

The Renewal of the new BR Health System
We’re changing the Medical system to give players better control over their primary health and repair a lot of the bugs that kept players from healing properly.
Please note that following the rebalance, there will be a lot of better healing options for players in-game and the amount of consumables you can carry will also be increased. You can find more details on the scoreboard.
Overwatch + Heroes of the Storm combined balance adjustment
Developer Comments: Going through both games, we took a look at their core mechanics. During the balance testing, we made several changes to both Hero teams as well as individual heroes. We are also thinking about putting the two games on a more equal footing. Thanks for your feedback.

Balls in the air for fans this holiday season. I don’t play Call of Duty, however this has me happy. Along with all these new updates comes a new store offering gear to celebrate. There are new cosmetic items that will be coming out for free through the winter. They are:
Blood of the Desert
Take control of the battle-worn land. Bloody sand makes for a muddy landing on your conquest fields.
With the mighty hump, your ride, & ammunition, camel riders can tear down even the strongest defenses.
Don’t be caught without the required firepower to take out the competition. Double ammo means more bang for your buck. I am not sure how we will play with these armor upgrades, because they are a bit beefy.
New character with Master Rank Icon:
After the Siege, he helped thousands of people escape the capital, joining in the attack on the Winter Palace as they pushed back the Orcs. Striding out of the Winter Palace, he could only grieve over the countless lives lost in the battle.
Burning and brilliant, R9-0 will allow for the domination of the new Armor Class system, and with proper mobility, it will allow him to out-maneuver the enemy.
- New skin
I like to imagine you got this piece of black fur from a vulture. Then again, I’m not quite sure. I only know you wear it. You know who else wore it?
