Blizzard has released the schedule and details for its annual event, Blizzcon. A full list nad calendar view of the weekend is available on the Blizzcon website, along with an overview of a site map, in case your one of the lucky ones who is able to attend on November 6th and 7th.
While those in-person tickets are sold out (and have been for a while), any Blizzard fan can purchase a digital ticket that grants you access to tons of great events and presentations like interviews, panels, announcements, and of course competition streams for all the games in attendance.
On Friday, the usual opening announcements and presentations will take place at 11:00 AM PT, followed by a slew of updates and announcements from the Blizzard universe. Among them is the highly anticipated Overwatch, their new venture into the class-based FPS genre, expect the time slot allotted to the game on Friday to be just the beginning.
Saturday is highlighted by a ton of great competition based gaming. The Grand and World Championships for Hearthstone, WOW Arena, Starcraft II, and Heroes of the Storm will all be played that day, ramping up the excitement and ending the long Road to Blizzcon each player has prepared for all year.
Personally, I’m very excited for this. Over the last year I’ve really gotten into Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm, so for the first time ever I’ll be eagerly anticipating almost every announcement that’s being made. What about you? Excited about the lineups, potential news, and e-sports competition at Blizzcon?
David is a lover of all things nerdy & geeky! (Nerd IS the new cool after all!)
From the wee age of 6 he made his way to a Canadian Tire, purchased a SNES for $200 in in-store credit money (Canadian Tire money for Canadians out there), and hasn’t looked back!
He loves the classics like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Roller Coaster Tycoon, but is deep into the new age of gaming with Heroes of the Storm, Apex Legends, and indies like Thomas Was Alone, and Mark of the Ninja.
