BlizzCon Kicks Off Today - Get Hyped!

Posted Thu Oct 20, 2011 at 05:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

It's time to get all the latest on 'Diablo III,' 'Starcraft II,' 'World of Warcraft' and who knows, maybe even that secret MMO that the company's been keeping their lips sealed about.

Blizzard's yearly celebration of Blizzard games for Blizzard fans happens this weekend. Probably not in a Blizzard, but someone might eat a Dairy Queen Blizzard and that's got to count for something. Blizzard.

If you're a PC gamer at all, you probably play a Blizzard game, or have in the past. They're the guys behind 'Diablo,' 'Warcraft' and 'StarCraft' and their annual convention is always something to behold. This year we can expect more information on the 'StarCraft' expansion 'Heart of the Swarm' and plenty on the soon upcoming 'Diablo III.'

The event kicks off Friday at 11:00 am PST and there's plenty running throughout the day. You can check out Q&A sessions, panels on new games and a pair of 'StarCraft II' tournaments that include the final match of the Korean based Global StarCraft League.

You can buy a virtual ticket directly from Blizzardto watch the whole event live for $39.99.
