BlizzCon is Blizzard’s annual celebration of the global communities surrounding its Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft game universes. Taking placed at the Anaheim Convention Center this year on October 21 and 22, BlizzCon will also be open to gamers worldwide through BlizzCon Virtual Tickets, which offer live coverage of the event through online steaming videos and also on DIRECTV in the United States.
Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment said:
We love being able to meet directly with our players, and since BlizzCon is one of the rare opportunities we get to do that, we always pack as much information and entertainment as we can into the show. This year will be no different — whether you’re with us in Anaheim or joining from home, be prepared for two days of Blizzard gaming and good times with the most passionate community in the world.
BlizzCon will feature an array of activities, including discussion panels, hands-on playtime with current and upcoming Blizzard Entertainment games, professional and casual tournaments, contests, and much more.
