Blizzard have given a rundown of what’ll be going down at BlizzCon next month, with a full schedule detailing each and every panel and event to take place over the course of the convention.

Here’s what’s going down with Overwatch League.

Things open up on Friday, November 3 appropriately enough with the opening ceremony, and if you’re interested most of all in the games the afternoon will be filled with “what’s next” panels covering World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, StarCraft II, and even the Battle.net client. These are typically where the big announcements will be coming from, and it’s all but certain we’ll at least learn about the new WoW expansion. (Though we do know not to expect anything on further remasters or Diablo just yet.)

Diablo will be represented in a few community panels, as will most of the Blizzard catalog in bits ranging from cosplay tutorials to creative highlights and community tournaments in both the games themselves and trivia competitions. Naturally, you can expect plenty of behind-the-scenes insight on Blizzard’s games, with Hearthstone and WoW Q&A sessions on Saturday to address those more specific questions.

You’ll be able to see all those panels live if you’ve picked up the Virtual Ticket, but every esports event for the weekend - and there are a lot of them - will be free. Those include the Overwatch World Cup, StarCraft II World Championship Series, Heroes of the Storm Global Championship, WoW Arena World Championship, and Hearthstone Inn-vitational. I, too, cannot believe Blizzard are actually going with that pun.

Tickets to the show itself are long since sold out, but Virtual Tickets are available for $39.99 / £24.99.

$39.99 USD is beyond insane. Put the money towards buying those games they are going to announce...
