BlizzCon 2015 Approaches

New Diablo III content will be revealed at the show

BlizzCon 2015
The gaming extravaganza of BlizzCon 2015 is nearly here! The celebration of all things Blizzard runs this Friday and Saturday, November 6 and 7, in Anaheim California. There will be announcements and gameplay for Blizzard's current games, and Diablo III is no exception. The latest official blogs hint at new content to be announced for the game, along with more details on the upcoming Patch 2.4.

Diablo III at BlizzCon
Curiously, the official Diablo III announcement initially contained extra info about the main Diablo III panel. As seen in the Google cache, the panel's description mentioned two features that were edited out: A first look at upcoming feature content, including updated sets, the all-new set dungeons, new Legendary items, stash space, and more. That bodes well for exciting new content to be unveiled during the panel.

The time has come once again for the Blizzard community to storm the halls of the Anaheim Convention Center! If you're planning on joining us live at the event or tuning in at home with the Virtual Ticket, here's what you can expect from Diablo III at BlizzCon 2015.

The Slaughtered Calf Inn at BlizzCon
Along with the main Diablo III panel at BlizzCon 2015, there will be a special section where the developers will be stopping by and chatting with fans. This sort of interaction was a huge hit at previous BlizzCons, most notably the Story Time with Uncle Wyatt chats last year and in 2013. It is always fun to hear directly from the developers about what they've been working on, and what they see for the future of the game.

We’re doing things a little differently at BlizzCon this year, and we’ve put together a special attraction for our Diablo attendees. If you’re attending BlizzCon 2015, you won’t want to miss out on joining us at our very own Slaughtered Calf Inn, located at the back of the Darkmoon Faire grounds!

We have reimagined the Slaughtered Calf Inn from Act I’s New Tristram, decking it out with not only thematic decorations but historic pieces of Diablo’s history. Fully staffed by members of our development team, this quaint tavern will be your one-stop-shop for all things Diablo!

Like this, but with fewer corpses and more friendly developers.

Throughout the course of the BlizzCon weekend, our developers will be offering a series of quick talks on all sorts of development topics. Want to hear John Yang chat about item design or Alex Sulman share an inside look at what makes a Treasure Goblin tick? We’ll have a full schedule of talks at the show or just swing by and enjoy some live music in between each short presentation!

If you’re itching to find out what’s new in Diablo III, you’ll definitely want to pay us a visit. Attendees will have the first opportunity to see what we’ve been working on at one of our demo stations. If you prefer to decimate the hordes of hell with a controller, we’ll also have a few consoles prepped and ready for you and a friend to tackle together!

Last but not least, the best reason to head over to our living piece of Sanctuary is to simply hang out! We love getting the chance to meet our players and talk about the game we’ve been passionately working on. We invite you to stay awhile and listen, and can’t wait to see you at this year’s BlizzCon!

Here at Diablo Somepage, we will be covering all the Diablo III news from BlizzCon. While this might not be the biggest BlizzCon for Diablo III, there will be plenty of fun new information to review, and learn about what we can expect in the next big patch!
