The Blizzcon opening ceremony has just finished, and Blizzcon 2013 has just officially started.
Needless to say, I’ve been a fan of Blizzard for many years. It’s not hard to understand why; they’ve released some of the most influential and successful games of all time.
I haven’t played wow for some time, it’s a great game but sadly I just don’t have the time to dedicate to it currently, but I’ll be interested to see what direction they’re taking with their newly announced expansion, Warlords of Draenor.
They’ve also released a trailer for their upcoming MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. I’m a League of Legends and DotA player, so obviously I’m excited to see how that pans out, and hey, you can’t beat dragons with swords:
I also happened to spot Diablo riding into battle on a Unicorn in their gameplay trailer:
Also, their Announcement Cinematic is suitably epic:
Finally, they also announced that their new card game Hearthstone (which I’ve been playing the beta of recently – it’s fun!) will be coming to Android, iPhone and tablets sometime next year.
If you’ve got a virtual ticket, enjoy the event and eSports coverage, and theres some stuff you’ll be able to check out for free too.
Either way, looks like many gamers will have a lot to look forward to in the coming year!
