As Usual, Blizzard Has The Best April Fools' Joke

Every year in the world of video games, there are two certainties: 1) Half-Life 3 will not be announced; and 2) Blizzard will have the best April Fools' joke around.

This year's prank is Blizzard: Outcasts, a hypothetical fighting game that features some of the lesser-known characters in Blizzard's various universes, like the Treasure Goblin and Jim Raynor's wife (who is dead).
