BlizzCon 2018 continues! Here's everything you need to know about the event, including schedule, date, latest news, and more!

BlizzCon 2018 - Overwatch

BlizzCon 2018 promises to be the biggest celebration of all things Blizzard yet, with tons of tournaments, panels, and maybe even a few surprise announcements! This year’s show will feature competitions for all of the studio’s eSports games, including Overwatch, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft II, and World of Warcraft. Expect plenty of action from your favorite Blizzard games!

First, Blizzard will take the stage for the Opening Ceremony to update fans on everything going on across all of the company’s games. Big announcements could include an update on Blizzard’s upcoming Diablo projects as well a new hero for Overwatch and new cards for Hearthstone. It’s not likely that Blizzard will announce a new IP this year, but you never know!

If you’re looking for a place to watch the Opening Ceremony, as well as all the tournaments, happening this weekend, you can tune into our live stream! For additional panels, exclusive in-game loot, a demo of the World of Warcraft Classic demo, and more, you might consider purchasing a Virtual Ticket, which will put you back $50. Tickets for the actual event are unfortunately sold out.
