Today, Blizzard Entertainment, Microsoft Games and NetEase jointly announced that Blizzard Entertainment’s games will return to the Chinese mainland market starting this summer under the updated game publishing agreement. Blizzard Games officially released “Strive to Heal, Recover Again – A Letter to Blizzard Gamers in the National Service”, confirming that the player’s account data will also be able to be recovered.

Dear Blizzard players, long time no see, we’re about to reunite!

For this, we are ecstatic and feel responsible, so I hope this letter can answer some of your doubts and share some of our visions.

The agreement has been signed, but we still need a short time to make technical preparations for the launch of the server, such as we need to rebuild a new server room and restore all kinds of data. We’re sorry we can’t deliver the Blizzard Family Bucket to you anytime soon. Whether it’s NetEase or Blizzard, we’ll do our best to shorten your wait. The games will be played one after the other, and the first returning game will be reunited in the summer.

When the server is on, we will ensure that your account data is kept intact. Don’t listen to rumors and engage in unprotected accounts or account data transactions.

During your absence, you missed out on many activities and benefits. We will try to give you the opportunity to regain them as much as possible. We will also prepare commemorative benefits and operational activities for Chinese players.

We will observe and collect players’ needs for the open version of the game through various channels, and properly arrange the version strategy. Various e-sports events have also begun to prepare, and we are missing too many exciting players in the national server!

There’s a lot of work to be done, and we’ll be sharing the details of each game at an appropriate time in the future, and we hope you’ll be satisfied.

The above is our effort to heal the regret of stopping the service.

It is not easy to recover from injured muscles and bones, but the muscles and bones will be stronger after recovery, which is the so-called excess recovery. Through the new way of cooperation, we will restore better services for the national server players.

More anti-cheating measures will be added to the game. In the new agreement, we will have more room to optimize the game environment for the national server, and more updated technical and legal means are waiting for us.

The national server publishing team will carry out more in-depth exchanges and cooperation with game developers, and we will bring better services and content to you together.

The creator community will also be better managed and supported. In the time when the national server left, many authors still provided high-quality content for Blizzard games, and this love and dedication will have corresponding gains. Emerging creators will also have more opportunities to gain traction. Thank you to the creators for their dedication and trust over the years!

Finally, let’s reforge Bloodroar!

NetEase and Blizzard’s artists will work together to design and cast a new Blood Roar sculpture. We’re going to collect the hearts and memories of our players and incorporate them into the design to engrave them into the newborn Bloodroar. We’re making the new Blood Roar a new token for players, NetEase, and Blizzard. This time it falls, it will never wear out.

You can participate in the message campaign on the official website. Not only will the selected message be cast into Bloodroar, but the player will also receive a Blizzard merchandise package worth 500 yuan. You can also participate in the event through the cooperation channels NetEase Dashen APP and NetEase Cloud Music APP, and each has more gifts to welcome.

We believe that the healing we experience together leads to stronger trust. The team of freshmen on both sides of the Pacific will respond to your call with the utmost enthusiasm.

Thanks for waiting, we’re back.
