Will BlizzCon 2011 be Diablo III’s Time to Shine?
Prepare for some BlizzCon 2011 madness, as GADG presents its predictions on what we'll see on this year's edition of the convention.
BlizzCon 2011 has always been the show stealer when it comes to yearly gaming conventions, and this year will most likely be the same as Blizzard is touted to give a stellar show line-up — including the much anticipated reveal on Diablo III’s release date.
Last year’s BlizzCon showcased the herald of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and a couple of sweet details on StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. With Diablo III still having little to no clues as to when it will come out, plus few and far in between in-game details about the RPG, many are speculating that Blizzard will go all out with the sequel of the Diablo franchise and the game will take center stage this BlizzCon 2011 when the convention kicks in October 21.
Don’t expect Blizzard to unveil the next World of Warcraft expansion yet though. But you can expect WoW’s next major patch, which many hope to contain new tiers and most likely a new lore-driven raid. Perhaps it’s time for players to face the full might of Deathwing?
StarCraft II might also get a new expansion since Wings of Liberty is almost one year old. Expect also an explanation from Blizzard on Sarah Kerrigan’s current condition based on the artwork they’ve released.
Here’s a list of what GADG is expecting in this years edition of BlizzCon:
- Diablo III details including a FINAL release date.
- World of Warcraft: Cataclysm major patch which contains new tiers and perhaps the final raid with Deathwing.
- StarCraft II expansion (let’s go Zerg!)
- Project Titan MMORPG/MMOFPS update. Maybe Blizzard will give us a teaser trailer?
- World of Warcraft movie update. Why is it taking so long, Sam Raimi?!
