BlizzConline Announced By Blizzard As Online-Only BlizzCon
Due to the ongoing global pandemic, in-person events were essentially scrapped for all of 2020, and with no end in sight, it is tough to determine when things will return to some form of normal. That said, one such event to be cancelled was BlizzCon, but Blizzard Entertainment has now announced what will take its place: BlizzConline.
Blizzard recently took to their website to announce BlizzConline, the online-only BlizzCon experience that will be taking place next February. “While circumstances are keeping us from gathering in person this year, we’re putting together a little something early next year to channel the spirit of BlizzCon into the form of an online show,” the post reads. “We still have a lot of planning to do, and it’ll be some time before we’re ready to share more details—but we wanted to provide a heads-up on how you can be a part of the online fun.”
A lot of the BlizzConline details they have revealed revolve around community-based content. There will be a Community Showcase during the online proceedings that will give community members an opportunity to showcase their talents. During the online event, there will be a Cosplay Exhibition, Cosplay Contest, Art Contest, Digital Storytelling Contest, Talent Spotlight, and the March of the Murlocs.
If you’ve attended BlizzCon in the past couple of years, you may have encountered a particularly peculiar procession, as hundreds of people masquerading as murlocs paraded through the convention halls. In honor of that grand tradition-in-the-making, we’re inviting you to participate in a virtual March of the Murlocs for BlizzConline!”
BlizzConline is set to take place February 19-20, 2021. For those interested in participating, details on the rules and how to register can be found here. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
