Blizzard has teased new content for Overwatch in 2018 including a new event, characters, and the release of a new map.
In a developer update video, game director Jeff Kaplan talks about what the Overwatch team has planned for the game in this new year.
Kaplan confirmed the new Blizzard World map announced last year which features a Blizzard-themed amusement park will be coming "very soon" with "tons of great Easter eggs" as well as other "great new maps" to come in the future.
He also discussed about a new Lunar New Year event, much like last year's Year of the Rooster event, which will feature "pretty significant content that players are going to be very happy with."
The Uprising and Anniversary events from last year will also see a return and all events should see changes to set themselves apart from their previous iterations.
Alongside these events and maps, a new character was teased, though with little information. Only referred to as Hero 27, Kaplan explained this new "very needed" character is currently in internal testing, but the development team has no release date yet.Hope Corrigan is an Australian freelance writer for IGN.
