Blizzard reveals what you can expect soon in Hearthstone, WoW and Co.


Update, October 15: Blizzard officials have revealed on their official website which in-game events are coming up in WoW, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Starcraft 2, and Diablo 3 over the next two weeks. We've updated the respective sections in the original post accordingly.

Original post from October 02: "Among the angels of Diablo's High Heavens, the story of Archangel Malthael serves as a grim warning of what befalls those who stray from the path of wisdom and instead persistently turn to fanaticism. In his quest to end the Eternal Conflict by any means necessary, Malthael has lost sight of the higher purpose, betrayed the High Heavens, and sealed his own fate. It's important to keep the big picture in mind, and not close your eyes to the obvious in your single-mindedness. Luckily, we've got just the thing for you with this blog post to help you stay on top of the coming events."

The developers of Blizzard inform you on the official website again this month about which in-game events await you in the near future in WoW, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3. However, since some Blizzard games are dead in the next few weeks, the list for the events in the first weeks of October is quite short. But see for yourself:

Gloom Nights (October 18th to 31st)

The Forsaken's split from the Scourge will be celebrated during the Goblin Nights. Fun and mischief reign as the innkeepers of Azeroth hand out trick-or-treaters to all who ask.
