Blizzard Gear Store Leak: Bolvar & Overwatch 2 Fine Art Print

Recommended Posts

z5S02b9.jpg

Yesterday, we brought up some interesting leaks related to the next WoW expansion and Overwatch 2. Today, the Bolvar fine art print went live on Blizzard Gear Store. Note that this does not confirm Shadowlands or anything, but we at least know it wasn't fake in the first place.

UPDATE: Both images can no longer be accessed (403 Forbidden Error). You can still find the Bolvar fine print here. Overwatch 2 was not archived, unfortunately.

The images are carefully hidden and we’ve reuploaded them in case they get deleted.

So at least that picture wasn't fake. Wonder why they changed Bolvar's eyes to blue. Regardless of the lore reason, he looked better with his orange-red color, blue kinda clashes with the rest of his body.

Still not sure about OW2, whether it's a separate game or some form of expansion. Don't like the idea of splitting the playerbase and there might be huge outrage among players, if they won't see their favorite characters and skins in there. Some designs are altered, but Brigitte, Winston and Mercy (at least from that range) appear to be rather unchanged.

He was "on our side" when he put on the helmet - but it was known that it would eventually corrupt him.  I assume that's what's happened.

I wonder how Bolvar is getting corrupted, since according to that book about Arthas, Ner'zhul is long gone (Arthas consumed his soul, so he could rule alone). Although there was some inconsistency in game, as in one quest from WotLK, LK mentioned that he used to be a shaman.

I think officially Nerzhul isn't "gone" but rather "merged" with Arthas. Think DBZ fusion. The two together made a new third personality. And just as Arthas' physical form had some of Nerzhul, maybe there exists a spirit within the Frozen Throne which is both part Nerzhul and part Arthas, which has now fused with the new Lich King.

I've updated the post now that the original links no longer work (403). Also curious to see what happened to Bolvar. Really hyped for a LK cinematic.

Technically, the Original LK used to be a Shaman. Ner'zhul was an Orc Shaman turned Warlock. He then corrupted Arthas when he called him to Northrend.

This is correct, but by the time these events were taking place, Ner'zhul should have been gone (chronologically that book happened before them), with Arthas ruling alone. Possibly, it was a classic case of miscommunication or simply in earlier version of the script Ner'zhul was still present.

      It's time for more Baal after his recent Diablo: Immortal appearance! We see a lot of upscales coming and going, but it's always great when they not only improve the video quality, but also remind us of some less familiar trailers and cinematics. That's exactly what we have today, as an E3 2001 trailer for LoD, which even I don't remember, and while it's mostly pieces of the expansion's intro cinematic, we have some great new Baal voiceover, as well as a whole lot of Worldstone shots that aren't present in the game.

      Gamescom is going digital this year and Blizzard confirmed their digital participation in the event.
      In 2019, Blizzard did not attend gamescom to focus on the development of their current and future titles.

      As part of a renewed effort this year to maintain our focus on development, for our current games and our future projects, we won’t have a booth at gamescom 2019. The show is an important one for the European and global gaming community, and we’re going to miss meeting players in Cologne this year. You’ll still be able to find Blizzard gear in the gamescom 2019 shop area, and we’re looking forward to returning to the gamescom show floor in the future. We’re also looking forward to sharing more details about the projects we’re currently working on when the time is right. This year, gamescom 2020 will be digital-only and the event runs from August 27 through August 30. Multiple game developers have confirmed their participation, including Activision Blizzard.
      Do you think Blizzard is going to reveal the release date of Shadowlands at gamescom 2020? Let us know in the comments!

      With so much talk of a remaster, here comes another amazing fan project, as Michael ReznoR has actually remastered the first 16 minutes of Diablo 2 gameplay to 4K resolution and 60 FPS! We can get a taste of what that rumored D2: Resurrected might look like with some crisp looking footage, which took some 10 days to make. Before you check it out you might want to set the video to at least 1440p, even if your monitor doesn't support it, to see the best version (due to some youtube compression issues).
      And here's the author himself going into the process it took to create the video, including some image comparisons between the original and remaster:
      You can also check out the reddit thread where a lot of players are commenting how this is exactly what they'd want from an official remaster (with some QoL stuff included).

      Carbot is getting into the Diablo 2 business, after the anniversary video he did for Blizzard! The new series, Diablols 2 just got its first entry (and a prelude Ep 0), and as usual with Carbot's stuff, it's a perfect(ly hilarious) encapsulation of a specific part of the game. For Episode 1 we get the absolutely flawless snowglobe that will forever remain a true representation of the Den of Evil + starting experience.
      But there's more, as we also got a prelude to the series with episode 0, focusing on the cinematic and explaining how and why the Dark Wanderer burned down that tavern:
      And finally here's the actual first D2 Carbot animation, the 20th anniversary Baal run video:

      The Diablo 2 20-year anniversary is here! Blizzard have a whole lot of special treats for us on this monumental day, with some Baal-themed wings in Diablo 3, a new bust of big red himself, a great D2 retrospective with comments from the devs, as well as a lot of content from prominent community members, including this awesome Carbot animation.
      (Update) Here's a better look at the Baal wings:
      It may not be the Diablo 2 remaster announcement everyone was hoping for (and that Blizzard officially said wasn't coming on the anniversary), but it's a whole lot of great stuff! Check out the full details:
      Diablo 2 Anniversary (source)
      Multiple Great Evils (not just one). Hardcore mode. Gem socketing. Fighting demons outside for the first time. Diablo II has a legacy, and it’s in the bloodstream of every game we’ve worked on at Blizzard since the year 2000.   It taught our artists, engineers and designers about mood and atmosphere, about randomness, and about what makes plate mail dress-up so persistently delightful. For DII’s 20th anniversary, we’re stoking the campfire and reflecting on a game that shaped how we make games.   In the process, we’ve dreamed up some cool stuff, and we hope you’ll check it out and celebrate with us.   To start, watch Baal Runz 101, a video developed by animation sorcerer Carbot Studios that we think is among his funniest work yet—and maybe the truest depiction of battling the Lord of Destruction. Read our Diablo II retrospective, with comments from Blizzard employees who’ve grown up developing, playing, and hanging out in the world of Sanctuary. Follow speedrun record-setter MrLlamaSC on a day-long live speedrun through Diablo II beginning at 9 am PT today. He’ll be playing through the entire game up to and including the Pandemonium event and conquering the “Uber” bosses. Bear witness to the unspeakable evil that is this limited-edition Lord of Terror bust. It looms 9” wide by 7-1/8” deep by 10-1/2” tall–the perfect size to desecrate your computer desk. Diablo’s never looked more terrifying (or more enthusiastic). Log in to Diablo III any time after June 29 to unlock your own tendinous Prime Evil Wings and represent the legacy you forged on Arreat Summit. Baal—as we saw in him in Diablo II—did not have wings, but try to imagine what they would’ve looked like if he did, and if you could’ve fastened them to your hero’s shoulders.
      We’re honored that you’re still enjoying one of our favorite games of all time this long after its release, and we’re grateful to spend a little time reminiscing with you.   Thank you,   The Diablo Team
