Blizzard teases February’s BlizzConline 2021 outlook, 30th anniversary bundles

Yes, BlizzConline is still happening, and yes it’s still called that. Blizzard has dropped a new trailer for the all-digital show today along with a recap of what to expect when the event kicks off on February 19th, though the full schedule is still forthcoming.

“Day 1 will kick off at 2 p.m. PST on Friday, February 19, with an opening segment that includes a first look at some of the latest game content the development teams have been working on. Then for the next three-plus hours, you’ll have the option to tune in to one of the six different themed channels, so you can decide whether you want to sample a little bit of everything or dig deeper into the games you’re interested in most.

“Day 2 will pick back up at 12 p.m. PST on Saturday, February 20, with multiple channels once again, until the fun wraps up at later that afternoon. Throughout this second day, we’ll be shining a spotlight on the global Blizzard community, including the winners and outstanding entries in the Community Showcase contests and exhibitions.”

Notably, and unlike BlizzCon itself, this event is entirely free, meaning you won’t need to buy a ticket to see some of the more niche panels and streams. February is Blizzard’s 30th anniversary, so you can expect a round of commemorative buyables in the company’s store. For World of Warcraft, that means a set of packs with a Moon-Touched Netherwhelp pet, Snowstorm mount, and game time.

What does it say about your company and its direction when the most anticipated announcement is for a re-release of a 14-year-old game?

Well, Shadowlands was the 2nd biggest PC game launch of all time, behind only Cyberpunk. But don’t let that interfere with your narrative.

My comment was about an unannounced product, not about a product that already launched. But don’t let that interfere with your narrative.

Actually, the most anticipated (hopes for) an announcement is probably OW2

The Netherwhelp pet is a pretty strong indication that TBC Classic is going to be announced. It was also the pet for TBC Collector’s edition. I think everyone was pretty much expecting it to be announced anyway, but this is just further confirmation.

One neat thing about the Snowstorm mount is that when idle it drops little piles of snow on the ground. Players can interact with the snow and pick up snowballs, which they can throw at other players.

When you are trying to get skins from old (one shot) content, they need to have a ‘box’ that allows you to pick the skins you want. Farming skins in the same raid for months is not my idea of fun.

Commemorate 30 Years of Blizzard – with absolutely nothing but cosmetics (and a few card packs).

Activision-Blizzard: we promise nothing and deliver less!

I just got into WoW a month ago. Based on the comments below, perfect timing!

No time like your first time.

Really wanted Shadowlands to bring me back, it couldn’t. I doubt anything they announce could help. I do want Diablo on my phone though.

RIP Starcraft, not even showcased in the trailer :(

…feeding the speculations that there is a new game coming to the StarCraft IP.

At this point it’s more like a memorial service for the Blizzard that once was.
