Blizzard has revealed BlizzConline, this year’s virtual replacement for its annual BlizzCon fan convention, which is set to start this month on Friday the 19th of February.
Blizzard has unveiled a landing page for the fan gathering, which will take place over two days and is absolutely free for anyone who wants to watch it.
BlizzConline will kick off with the con’s usual opening ceremony, at which fans will likely hear about updates on their favourite Blizzard titles, and possibly the announcements of a couple of new games. So if you have an eye out for a new expansion pack for Hearthstone or World Of Warcraft, or if you’re after the latest information about Diablo 4, this would be the place to be.
Buckle up, we’re in for a Blizzard…
Beyond the opening ceremony, fans will have access to six channels of programming, in which they can expect developers on their favourite titles to go into exhaustive detail about what they can expect in the coming year. If you miss any of the broadcasts, don’t fret, you can always catch up with them in the BlizzConline archives.
“We couldn’t let too much time go by without connecting with our community in the spirit of BlizzCon, and that’s what this show is all about—getting together with friends from around the world and celebrating the bonds and experiences we share through games,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment.
“We’re also excited to share some updates on what the teams have been working on—and while this won’t be the usual BlizzCon, the all-online format gives us a unique opportunity to shake things up a bit and create a show specifically for a community at home.”
