Blizzard World is a map in Overwatch themed around a theme-park designed around all of Blizzard's games. 

This map went live on January 23, 2018. It features flanking zones throughout the map and tons of Blizzard Easter Eggs in the props as well as audio.

Defenders on the map start in the Heroes of the Storm Arcade, while attackers spawn in the Hearthstone Tavern. The first payload moves from the Warcraft-themed to the StarCraft themed areas. Once secure, it then moves on to the Diablo-themed area, with the end point as the Throne of the Skeleton King.
