Each day will be filled with all manner of events, from open gaming sessions to panels covering virtually every aspect of the games Blizzard offers.

BlizzCon Interviews

While we're down here, we've decided to share the photos we've taken of some of the more colorful visitors and staff wandering about the convention. We've run into all varieties of gamers here; from the reserved "quiet screamers" to the more eclectic folks who really get into character (these folks give new meaning to the term "Night Elf Mohawk", let me tell you!). You can see all of our images here.

Diablo III

To showcase the newest addition to this highly acclaimed series, Blizzard has a playable demo for us here at Blizzcon and will be taking some time to go over a variety of topics. This time, the game takes place on the world of Sanctuary, where the minds of Blizzard will cover such topics as:

  • Diablo III Class Design - You've witnessed the raw physical power of the barbarian and the terrifying alchemy and diseases of the witch doctor. Now you can learn more about these heroes - and see if any other champions emerge to defend the mortal world.

  • Diablo III Game Design - Get a detailed look at the design and development process behind the visceral gameplay of Diablo III. We'll explore the influence previous Diablo games have had, as well as the new and exciting features the upcoming sequel has to offer.
  • Diablo III - Lore and Art - From lore to spell effects, from creature design to quests - sit down with our writers and artists as they discuss the creative process of building Diablo III's rich world of Sanctuary.
