Blizzard Announces Appearance at GamesCom 2013

Blizzard Entertainment announced their attendance to the 2013 GamesCom in Cologne, Germany through August 21-25.

Now this is kinda awesome in a few ways. This event takes place less than three months before BlizzCon (November 8-9).

Just a few days ago, San Diego Comic Con attendees had the opportunity to play Diablo III (PS3). GamesCom attendees are likely going to play the latest build just prior to the game shipping (September 3).

However, GamesCom might have a few surprises that could breath-take fans.

For example, Blizzard revealed the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Opening Cinematic at GamesCom 2012 (August 15-19).

GamesCom 2011 spawned Diablo III screenshots, Diablo III Interviews, Diablo III Inferno-Mode, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm single-player screenshots, World of Warcraft Patch 4.3 details and even Blizzard DOTA info (now Blizzard All-Stars).

Something to note is that Diablo III Beta started a month later on September 20, 2011.

In the 2010 GamesCom, Blizzard invited key press journalists to discuss a secret feature of Diablo III with Jay Wilson.

Speculation

It isn’t Blizzplanet unless I wrap up with a round of speculations. As you can see, based on past precedents, this 2013 GamesCom might have a few surprises under Blizzard’s sleeve. Could Duncan Jones and Thomas Tull make a surprise appearance to reveal more about the Warcraft film? Hearthstone Opening Cinematic? Hearthstone demo stations|screenshots|gameplay video|interviews? Blizzard All-Stars tease? Only time will tell.

Thanks, Kuangtu
