It’s that time of the year, when Blizzard Korea returns for its annual April Fools' Day prank.
Blizzard already released a lot of news this year. We are now seeing Heroes of the Storm 2.0, Overwatch APEX Season 2 a week away from finals, World of Warcraft 7.2 patch that actually started its journey to the Tomb of Sargeras, Journey to Un’Goro preparing to launch in Hearthstone, and Brood War remastered for modern platform with remastered graphics. Blizzard is offering us a rich amount in April Fools' this year.
Tour package around the maps of Overwatch in real life
Overwatch launched its own tour package inspired by some famous maps of Overwatch. You can visit Hanamura in Osaka, King’s Row in London, Hollywood in LA, and Ilios in Santorini. Each package offers a 0.41% limited time discount. It is a great chance to visit all the iconic sites of Overwatch's world and see for yourself if this world is really worth fighting for.
The tour package also comes with featured events, such as Mei’s cold pack massage that will make you younger than ever, and Lúcio’s dinner and a show in which he will play his own DJ set. Don’t forget to take away with you the special souvenir, Over’watch’ that you can actually wear, as it was memed by Korean gamers even before the game was released.
Medivh’s secret archive that gives you the cosmic knowledge
In the depths of Karazhan, Blizzard excavated the secret archive of Medivh, in the form of a PC folder. He hid all the secret and powerful knowledge inside the folder so that he could keep it as his own, but it was not so long until it was found and released to all gamers around the world. AMA!
Learning Khalani, the language of Protoss
These textbooks will greatly help those that are willing to learn Khalani so that they can hang out with their cool alien friends. Blizzard even offers its own Khalani language institute, where students can learn from famous lecturers like Artanis, Alarak, and Zeratul. [Zeratul is still alive in the Nexus.]
Blood Shard smartwatch for real Nephalems
This wearable device makes your tough adventure in the Sanctuary much easier. You can wear this device on any part of your body, and it will pick up your game habits and store in its memory for various uses. It notifies you when you acquire a legendary item, and even wakes you up if you fall asleep while grinding through Nephalem Rift. Start your new season with this awesome device that even vibrates to give you a wrist massage.
Vote for the next hero to be in the Nexus
Heroes of the Storm, aka the luxurious restaurant among Korean gamers, offers its players the chance to vote for the next hero to arrive in the Nexus. A total of 401 candidates have participated, and one hero with the least amount of vote is disqualified every week. This means that the competition will go on for 400 weeks. I really wonder who will make it to the end.
Hearthstone's education mode for children
Recent studies, although we are not sure exactly what expert source we are talking about, revealed that playing Hearthstone makes notable contribution to the child’s reasoning ability especially during the stage when his or her cognitive perception of the world is complexified.
