The WoW References in the Overwatch Blizzard World Map
The latest Overwatch map, Blizzard World, is filled with Warcraft references.

An amusement park celebrating the universes of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo, Blizzard World is a brand-new hybrid Assault/Escort map.

Upon entering the theme park, you'll find signs for the Darkmoon Ferris Wheel and Blackrock Mountain.
