Have you ever found yourself tired of roaming the endless roads of Azeroth, with your legs heavy from all the gold in your pouches, which just becomes more useless with every other gold coin you put in it? Blizzard has come up with the perfect solution to your problem.

Polygon shares a big announcement for “World of Warcraft” players shared by no one else, but the game’s developers. Blizzard has announced that WoW Tokens can now be exchanged for virtual goodies in other Blizzard games. For those who are unfamiliar with the topic, WoW Tokens allow players to exchange gold for in-game play time. Each WoW Token offers 30 days of play time as they were used. Now the spare WoW Tokens can be exchanged for virtual currency in Battle.net. With this currency player will be able to buy loot boxes in “Overwatch”, card packs in “Hearthstone” and many more special rewards.

Another big announcement shared by Blizzard concerns the future of “Overwatch”. Express UK have announced that a new character is coming to the game’s roster. His name is Doomfist and he is the newest addition to the available game characters. Popular actor Terry Crews has tried to stir up online support to secure him the role of Doomfist in the game. On Twitter, he has announced his desire to voice the new character and has received thousands of shares and re-tweets supporting his claim. Will Blizzard listen to these voices or have they already got someone working on the job is not yet sure.

Game Spot shares additional information on internal Blizzard politics. A suggestion made by Blizzard to add mouse and keyboard support to the PS4 and XBOX One consoles has stirred up the console producers. Phil Spencer from XBOX has made an announcement on the topic, saying that mouse and keyboard support is something that will surely prove advantageous to gamers, but he will leave the final word in the hands of the game developers. What will happen in future, only the common interest may decide.
