Ah April Fools Day, maybe the only day each year where it’s socially acceptable to pull pranks on your friends, family, colleagues and generally, the whole world.
One cross-section of society that lives for April Fools Day pranks is the video game world.
Every year, developers, news sites, streamers and more come together to create crazy updates or invent bizarre stories to trick the world.
One of the games taking part in the festivities this year is none other than Blizzard’s Overwatch, and they teased it by simply tweeting out the eyes emoji. But what exactly are they doing? Let’s take a look.
