BlizzCon 2010

While events like E3 showcase big games of 2011 and beyond to the world, most of these trade shows are closed to the public. BlizzCon is an exception to this rule, designed as a place for Blizzard game fans to meet the developers, pick up new swag, and party together. Blizzard Entertainment made this year’s big game event official. The sixth annual BlizzCon gaming convention will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22, 2011. BlizzCon is a celebration of the global player communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and  Diablo universes. Diablo III, which will launch this year, is expected to be a key focus for the convention.

Blizzard Entertainment will unleash one of the biggest PC games of 2010 just in time for Christmas. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the highly anticipated third expansion for the world's most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game, will be available on DVD-ROM for Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7 and Macintosh at a suggested retail price of $40 and will also be offered as a digital download from the Blizzard Store. A special Collector’s Edition packed with bonus items will be available exclusively in retail stores for a suggested retail price of $80.
