Some games, like Diablo 2: Resurrected, Diablo 3, and World of Warcraft have PTRs where they can test their changes out, put new content up for players to interact with said content, and otherwise perform the Public Test that PTR -- Public Test Realm -- stands for.
In a huge surprise earlier this week, the World of Warcraft team released a new story cinematic for Shadowlands patch 9.2 titled Shattered Legacies.
Patch 9.1 has been on the PTR since April, and now we finally have a release date: June 29.
The patch 9.0.5 PTR is now live, and it's a system focused affair, with bug fixes for issues that couldn't be hotfixed and a whole new system for upgrading items that drop in Mythic+ dungeons.
When the Shadowlands pre-patch arrives on October 13, all characters will be getting their levels squished.
The first patch cycle of Shadowlands has arrived: patch 9.0.5 is now live on Public Test Realm (PTR), featuring Valor Points and a number of systems changes.
We knew it was coming soon, but Blizzard finally confirmed that patch 8.2.5 will be going live on September 24.
Beelieve it or not but honey bees are fascinating little creatures.
The WoW patch 8.2.5 PTR development notes are live with a list of new stuff that's coming with the update, including the long-anticipated Worgen and Goblin model update.
Overwatch will enact a role lock to team compositions in Overwatch League stage four -- and the game's Competitive and Quick Play modes -- as confirmed by Blizzard in a new developer update video and a post on the website.
