Join Geek & Sundry on the Road to BlizzCon! Announcements, Exclusives, and More

BlizzCon is nearly upon us again, and we couldn’t be more excited for one of our favorite conventions of the year! Not only is BlizzCon a fantastic experience all on its own, but we also have some exciting things up our sleeve. Game Engine, our resident video game show, will be following along the road to BlizzCon with previews, exclusives, and even a panel of our very own!

Leading up to the convention, we’re heading to the Blizzard campus for our own behind-the-scenes tour! While we’re there, we’ll be speaking with game developers to get some exclusive insight into some of your favorite games… including a BlizzCon Exclusive Diablo III demo!

Then, when the convention begins in Anaheim, CA on November 3rd, we’ll be diving into the wonderful madness on the ground and on The Virtual Ticket, where you can watch BlizzCon showcases on demand. Now, as with most conventions, figuring out what you want to do and see on the floor can be a little overwhelming. The new schedule allows fans to create their own “paths” to see all of a particular game’s content without having to miss anything.

Finally, we’re so thrilled to share details about our panel at BlizzCon, which you can watch on The Epic Stage on Friday, November 3 at 4pm PST! In our “Connect and Inspire through Play” panel, our very own Game Engine hosts Erika Ishii and Trisha Hershberger will be chatting with some of Geek & Sundry’s favorite Blizzard voice talents about their personal experiences as both game contributors and members of the gaming community.  Get your questions ready, because there’s going to be an audience Q&A to follow!

Panelists include:

  • Darin DePaul (Overwatch, Diablo)
  • Matthew Mercer (Overwatch)
  • Laura Bailey (Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm)
  • Liam O’Brien (World of Warcraft)
  • Jason Charles Miller (World of Warcraft)
  • Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Diablo)
  • Taliesin Jaffe (World of Warcraft)
