Blizzcon 2011 on the radar

By
Blizzard Entertainment has booked a convention centre early on to house Blizzcon 2011.  A showcase for fans to get a look at developments in titles such as World of Warcraft and StarCraft as well as a chance to get a sneak peak at the upcoming Diablo III.  Fans will need to be quick, this open to the public event sells out in minutes, perhaps a better way of getting in the door is to apply for a job at Blizzard, it is hiring.

"We look forward to holding another exciting BlizzCon this year, filled with some great entertainment and competition, as well as the latest news about Blizzard games," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "BlizzCon is built from the ground up with our community in mind -- we're pleased to be able to host an event where players can come together to have fun and celebrate their passion for gaming."  

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that from Friday October 21 through to the end of Saturday October 22nd fans of its relatively small stable of games can enjoy the atmosphere and hands-on experience of Blizzcon 2011, to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

In addition to serving as a gathering place for Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, BlizzCon will offer attendees a chance to enjoy:

* Hands-on play time with the latest versions of Blizzard Entertainment games
* Discussion panels with Blizzard Entertainment developers
* Competitive and casual tournaments for players to showcase their talents
* Community contests with great prizes
* Commemorative merchandise based on Blizzard Entertainment's game universes
* More activities and attractions to be announced

The previous BlizzCon was held in Anaheim in October 2010. Tickets to the event sold out in minutes, and some of the highlights included the unveiling of Diablo III's fifth and final playable character class, the demon hunter, and an epic closing concert featuring Tenacious D.

Further details about BlizzCon 2011, including ticket availability and pricing, will be announced on the official Blizzard website, www.blizzard.com, as the event draws closer.

To keep pace with the continued growth of World of Warcraft as well as development on other Blizzard Entertainment games, the company is currently hiring for numerous open positions. More information on available career opportunities can be found at www.blizzard.com/jobs.
