  1. Guerrilla Games' Hermen Hulst Named Head Of Sony Interactive Entertainment's Worldwide Studios

    Following the departure of chairman Shawn Layden, Sony has named Hermen Hulst, Guerrilla Games' director and co-founder, as the new head of Worldwide Studios and will be tasked to oversee software development across Sony's 14 internal game studios. Guerrilla promoted three people as co-studio directors: Michiel van der Leeuw, who was the technical director, Angie Smets, executive producer, and Jan-Bart van Beek, studio art director.

    Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, who has long been an influential voice for Sony on social media, is leaving the position to shepherd smaller independent studios.

    In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz, PlayStation CEO and president Jim Ryan calls Hulst one of the most well-respected leaders in video games. "He is a passionate advocate for the teams he leads and understands how to empower creative talent to build great experiences," he said. "I have no doubt Hermen can lead our teams to deliver compelling and diverse experiences at a steady cadence."

    During the opening ceremonies of BlizzCon 2019, Blizzard announced both a new game mode and expansion for Hearthstone, its premiere strategy card game.

    Focusing on the fierce winged beasts, Descent of Dragons will feature dragons from Azeroth's storied history. The newest expansion features 135 new cards for players to experiment with, along with a new Hero Card featuring Galakrond. Utilizing the new Invoke cards, players can level up the dragon multiple times for Galakrond to reach his final form.

    Descent of Dragons will be available for players starting December 10.

    On top of the new expansion, Blizzard also announced a new game mode called Battlegrounds. Featuring eight-player matches, Hearthstone fans will assemble boards and duel opponents until only one is left standing. 

    Fans who pre-purchase Descent of Dragons, attend BlizzCon 2019, or buy the Virtual Ticket will have access to the new mode starting November 5, while everyone else will have to wait until the game enters open beta.

    With BlizzCon 2019 in full swing, the company has lifted the curtain on its core franchises, including Diablo IV, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and Overwatch 2.

  5. Blizzard Officially Unveils Overwatch 2, Details New PvP And PvE Modes

    Overwatch's game director Jeff Kaplan closed out BlizzCon's opening ceremony with a lengthy look at Overwatch 2, the sequel that has both been long been rumored and, more recently, the subject of numerous leaks. Overwatch 2 is a full sequel that offers new PvP modes AND a new PvE component that is divided into two sections: Story Experience and Hero Missions.

    Our first look at Overwatch 2 came from a new short film called "Zero Hour (see above)," in which we see Winston, Mei, Tracer, and Echo (who isn't a known playable hero yet) reassemble the Overwatch team to take down a new threat by Null Sector. The war begins in Paris, and then, after the film ends, transitions to Rio de Janeiro, the location for the first mission of Overwatch 2's new Story Experience. Yes, Overwatch 2 now has a dedicated PvE story mode. Hero Missions are another PvE avenue of play that gives players the chance to power up heroes with new abilities. The heroes themselves have been slightly redesigned and look a bit sleeker than before. Kaplan confirmed Sojourn is a new playable hero. She first appeared in an Archives mission in Overwatch 1, but little else is known about her.

    Since Blizzard didn't want to leave any of its players behind, all of the new PvP content in Overwatch 2 can be played in Overwatch 1. That's right, you don't need Overwatch 2 to play Overwatch 2's PvP content, you just need Overwatch 1. Conversely, if you played the living hell out of Overwatch 1 and are worried you'll lose all of your skins, sprays, and cosmetics, all of that stuff carries over into Overwatch 2.

    Overwatch 2's PvP mode features a new core game mode called Push, which will be featured in Quick Play, Competitive Play, and will also be played in Overwatch League matches. Push tasks the warring teams to escort a robot down a path. The team that pushes it the furthest wins.
