The Blizzcon 2018 Opening Ceremony is scheduled for today, and according to prolific developer Blizzard, the show will be available to watch live on the official Blizzcon site and Blizzcon mobile App.
The event is also usually available to watch on Blizzards Twitch channel, although the rest of the panels will require a Virtual Ticket.
You can see the video embedded below if you want to catch all the action live.
Blizzcon 2018 will begin after the opening ceremony and will continue until Saturday, November 4. The opening ceremony starts at 11am PDT, and if previous years are anything to go by we can expect it to last about an hour.
That means you can tune in to watch the Blizzcon 2018 opening ceremony from 7pm GMT.
Overwatch hero 29 reveal incoming?
So what's going to be shown at the opening ceremony?
Well, Blizzard typically uses the momentum at the start of the show to make new announcements about new games, or new additions to existing games.
So, in 2018, what does that mean?
We seem to get heroes revealed at regular intervals by Blizzard, and the common consensus seems to be that we'll get a new hero reveal at Blizzcon 2018. Why is that? Well…
At Blizzcon 2016, we saw Blizzard introduce Sombra. Then, at Blizzcon 2017, we saw the company reveal Moira. Two for two, right? After all, in the biggest celebration of Blizzard's all year, why wouldn't the company show off a new character?
