The long-awaited Blizzard showcase hits the internet this year with the inaugural BlizzConline, which will have many revelations for Diablo, Overwatch, World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Hearthstone and more.
Due to the global health crisis, Blizzard is studying how they want fans to attend the company’s 30th anniversary, and will bring the entire presentation online so everyone can watch for free.
This will give people lots of control over how they will experience BlizzConline, especially since there will be different channels where fans can tune in to the streams of specific titles.
Blizzard has confirmed everything from which game universes we hear from, as well as the different schedules, depending on what you want to follow, so take a look at our overview below.
The electronic Blizzard celebration will take place during the weekend of 19 and 20 February. Each day there will be about four hours of coverage from start to finish.
However, lots of panels and questions and answers will be played at the same time which are about completely different titles.
BlizzConline 2021 is streaming
You can follow all six of the BlizzConline streams directly from the company’s own page, or on both Twitch and YouTube for people who want to experience the presentation with these communities.
As time goes on, Dexerto will put all relevant streams here for your convenience.
Presentations by BlizzConline
All hands are on deck at Blizzard, which has produced live segments and pre-recorded footage centered around its many universes.
But these moments will happen sporadically throughout the 2-day event, starting with the BlizzConline opening ceremony which takes place on the first day at 14.00 PST / 5 PM EST / 22:00 GMT.
After the opening show, you can draw in which stream highlights your favorite Blizzard title to see what new surprises the company presents during the event.
