Blizzcon is free for everyone this year. Everyone, get in here!

We’re all incredibly sick of virtual events. That’s a thing, right? Virtual Event Fatigue? All these massive shows and conventions promising fans that they’ll miss out on nothing and that it’ll be exactly the same as if it were in person when in reality, just sitting in on another Zoom call (which we’re also sick of) will never capture what it means to be at Comic-Con. Thing is, Blizzard’s annual convention Blizzcon has been offering a virtual companion for anyone who can’t attend in person for years now. They even charged for it and provided goodies in return, so it’s not some kind of lame cop-out.


If you’ve ever wanted to head to Blizzcon, this is your chance to do it as Blizzard has confirmed that the 2021 event will be free for everyone. Blizzcon 2020 was cancelled this year and was confirmed to move online with a new date of February 19-20, 2021. It even has a new name: BlizzcOnline. That’s fun, right? “While we won’t have a physical show this year, we’re very much looking forward to BlizzConline early next,” said J. Allen Brack, Blizzard president. “We want it to be a big virtual celebration, so BlizzConline will be free to watch and engage in.”


It used to be that to get into the virtual event you’d need to pay $40 for a virtual ticket to view all the panels and esports tournaments for Blizzard’s various competitive titles. BlizzConline will include an art and storytelling competition, a cosplay contest and exhibition, presumably some kind of esports tournament, and a “March of the Murlocs” which is basically just the cosplay thing but themed around murlocs. Honestly, I think most fans just want to see more of Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2. If you want more info, check out the Blizzcon website.

    cool, but seeing as acti blizz are rapidly scaling down everything blizz related, this will likely just be BlizzCon 2019 version 2

    Maybe I would care if they still had HGC going…or were still the “Blizzard of old” that created good games and did not say stuff like “do you not have a phone”

    Looking forward to the panel “What the People’s Republic have done for gaming and why all counter-revolutionaries should be shot”
