I got to play Shadowlands at BlizzCon 2019, and I have opinions.
There was a lot at this year's BlizzCon -- World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, Diablo 4, Overwatch 2, and both a new expansion and a new mode for Hearthstone, plus playable demos for Warcraft 3 Reforged and Diablo Immortal were on hand.
For the first time in the Diablo series, you'll be able to play a character that looks more like you, or whoever you want your hero to be.
Rio de Janeiro and Toronto are new maps in Overwatch 2, but there may be some unannounced maps in the gameplay trailer too
Overwatch 2 promises a lot of things, but top of the list for some players will be the new locations we'll go to on new, exciting maps.
Besides all the big announcements and mechanics deep dives, BlizzCon also features panels that are creative and fun to watch, but not necessarily important as far as big news goes.
I'm writing this from the Seattle Airport after having just spent a week in California.

This year's BlizzCon was packed with news.
Introduced in patch 8.2, Essences for the Heart of Azeroth were unequivocally a great addition to the game.
