If you’re planning to visit the Blizzard booth at gamescom this August, you’d better be ready for an avalanche of entertainment. Throughout all four public days of the world’s biggest games convention, we’ll have all sorts of fun stuff kicking off on our massive stage, at the heart of our biggest ever booth. You’ll also be able to play four great Blizzard games, including content that’s not yet available to the public!
In the coming days we’ll be launching a new site dedicated to our presence at gamescom, including a detailed schedule. In the meantime, check out the general stage activities and entertainment, plus some more game-specific stuff below that, to whet your appetite.
A visit to gamescom would not be complete without taking in the famous Blizzard Costume Contest. Every year, creative fans of our games spend weeks (if not months!) preparing amazing outfits based on characters from our games. Just as fun – and more energetic – is the World of Warcraft Dance Contest. Signups will be open throughout the show so if you can strut your stuff like a WoW character, come and show the world on our stage. Great prizes are on offer for all contest participants!
Those aren’t the only ways to win prizes, though. Peppered throughout our packed schedule will be quizzes – just be in the audience and get ready to show your knowledge of our games. Right answers mean great loot!
If you love the music from our games, you won’t want to miss our live concerts. Our orchestra will be playing tracks from World of Warcraft, Diablo and more, with specially made arrangements. And if you’ve ever wondered how the amazing art that goes into our games gets made, we’ve got Blizzard artist Luke Mancini in live drawing sessions on stage throughout the show.
