Patch Notes

Stukov now live in Heroes of the Storm It’s new hero time in Heroes of the Storm, as Stukov is now live in game. But he’s not the only new thing coming to the Nexus: we also have a new map rotation, a major rework for Xul, plus tweaks to Tyrande and Anub’arak that are new since we first saw the patch on...

Diablo 3 Rise of the Necromancer and 2.6.0 patch notes It’s a joyous day for those who want to raise the dead, because the Necromancer has finally arrived in Diablo… for a price. Fortunately, it’s not a price to be paid in blood (unless you know a local blood bank that offers cash): the Necromancer DLC will set you back $14.99 in the Blizzard Store....




Loot Box changes and Highlights live on Overwatch PTR A new build has hit the Overwatch PTR, featuring the new Highlights options mentioned in the latest Developer Update. In addition, there’s a selection of bug fixes to heroes, maps, and the user interface. At the moment, no hero changes are on the list — but the new Loot Box updates and Highlights are both...

StarCraft patch 1.18.8 now live A small patch for StarCraft — that’s right, the original — has been released for the game that includes DirectX 9 support as well as a Latency Changer with five available options during lobby creation. A couple of bugs fixes were also implemented, but otherwise, the list is pretty short. If you haven’t noticed, StarCraft...

If you’re interested in this new hero, check out the hero spotlight below. However, Malthael isn’t not the only point of interest in the latest patch notes. First, Thrall is the latest hero to receive...




Hearthstone patch notes introduce deck importing and more A new Hearthstone patch has just arrived for Desktop clients. Previously mentioned features like deck importing, quest completion with friends, and stacking both gold and non-gold cards have been added along with other cool aspects! Deck importing is the feature I’ve looked forward to the most. Now I can create and share decks with my friends...

D.Va live in latest Heroes of the Storm patch, plus new hero rotation Happy patch day, Heroes of the Storm fans! Today’s patch, live now, brings new hero D.Va  to the game, plus big reworks to Alarak and Tyrande (sadly killing my favorite owl build). For all the details, check out the patch notes at the bottom of this post. And because it’s Tuesday, we have a new round of...



D.Va and more hit the Heroes of the Storm PTR Mondays are always a bit of a drag, but at least you have something to look forward to after work with a new Heroes of the Storm PTR build. The headliner of this build is new hero D.Va, and though we’ve already seen a preview of her in action, now you can test her out yourself....

The biggest change: a complete overhaul of Uther, who has seven brand new...

Heroes of the Storm patch notes for April 4 The latest balance patch hit Heroes of the Storm today along with new hero Cassia.

In the latest monstrous patch we’ll return to the Broken Shore to fight the Burning Legion — but there’s plenty more than just that to explore. Unlock flying, check out The Cathedral of Eternal Night, jump into all new class...

Newly buffed Bastion nerfed in latest Overwatch patch Bastion received a big rework in the Overwatch patch that went live on Tuesday, but his new Ironclad passive has already gotten a significant nerf. He’ll still have more survivability than he used to, but shouldn’t be quite so intimidating to other players. There are a few other defensive nerfs in the mix, too — including...

Latest Heroes of the Storm balance patch nerfs Tychus, Murky, and more The latest Heroes of the Storm patch notes are out and they’re slapping down the upstart heroes who’ve begun to dominate the Nexus. Varian’s point-and-click stun is no more as Warbringer loses its stun component, instead greatly increasing the slow applied by Charge. Colossus Smash and Twin Blades of Fury, however, have each received small buffs...

Lunar Festival arrives in Heroes of the Storm with updated patch notes The Lunar Festival has arrived, so head into Heroes of the Storm and get to rooster racing for gold and a Lunar Rooster mount.

WoW patch 7.2 PTR patch notes The patch notes for patch 7.1.5 were a bit last minute. We didn’t have official patch notes for the latest iteration of the game until right at patch day — and even then, they were incomplete, leading to confusion over what Blizzard was really trying to do. Was this new game behavior a bug or simply...
