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.
