Blizzard’s yearly convention, Blizzcon, is happening this weekend, Nov. 4 and 5. If you're a fan of Hearthstone, World Of Warcraft, Overwatch or any one of their number of games, this is the weekend you’ve been waiting for. Blizzard has some major announcements up their sleeves, along with some epic eSports events that I’m sure will go down in the history books.

“Can’t Miss” Events

Blizzard always announces new content for their games at Blizzcon. Last year, Blizzard announced the Legion expansion for World Of Warcraft , The Whispers Of The Old Gods card set for Hearthstone and our first real look at Overwatch . It looks like Blizzard is trying to out do themselves, releasing some gigantic teasers for their games. If you want to see these announcements live, check out the Blizzard Twitch channel, which will be showing these panels all day. Keep in mind that the announcements for these games will happen during the Opening Ceremony.
