BlizzCon 2021 kicks off later today with a virtual-only event called BlizzConline. The fan-focused convention is usually held in person, but the presentations, panels, and reveals are online this year. Here’s what you need to know!
The Opening Ceremony kicks off at 4 PM Central Time and will last roughly an hour. After that, Blizzard is breaking up coverage into five different channels focused on specific products. And while they usually charge to visit the convention in person, all of the online content is free this year.
The different channels focus on World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Diablo, Overwatch, and strategy games (StarCraft 2, Heroes of the Storm). Plus, there’s a sixth channel that combines the best elements from the other channels.
Blizzard’s schedule is a handy resource to keep track of what you want to watch. There’s everything from a Hearthstone deep dive looking at what’s coming in 2021 to a behind-the-scenes look at Overwatch 2.
