Like most other events happening in 2020, Blizzard has decided to hold its annual BlizzCon event online.
Now, Blizzard has announced that BlizzConline (yes, that is what the online event is being called), will be available online for the low low price of absolutely nothing. Unlike the physical BlizzCon event where only certain aspects of the event are free, including the event’s opening ceremony, BlizzConline will be “free to watch and engage in”.
“We want it to be a big virtual celebration, so BlizzConline will be free to watch and engage in,” said J. Allen Brack, Blizzard president, in a Blizzard fireside chat video.
Though the decision to make the event free might mean that some of the rewards typically tied to BlizzCon tickets, such as event-exclusive skins, might end up costing fans money. We’ll have to wait on more updates to see how Blizzard intends to go about it.
Some of the upcoming games expected to be talked about during BlizzConline includes Diablo IV and Overwatch 2.
BlizzConline is slated to take place on 19-20 February 2021.
