I Am Psychic
A few articles ago, I wrote a Shared Topic post regarding what I thought Blizzard would announce this year at Blizzcon 2011. I thought my ideas were based on (what I felt) was pretty obvious observations and conclusions. But hey, I’m just a guy. Human, some might say. I have flaws, and maybe my ability to read the future is one of them.
Turns out I just might have been right after all.
According to an article in PC Gamer, Blizzard is planning to present both Diablo 3 and the first expansion for Starcraft 2 –
A post on Battle.net Poland, spotted by CVG, has outlined Blizzard’s line-up for their Gamescom showing in Cologne next month. StarCraft 2′s first expansion, Heart of the Swarm, will be available for attendees to play on the show floor for the first time in Europe, and fans will get their hands on Diablo 3 as well.
“We have prepared for you, not just exhibition matches, live raids, competitions and other attractions, but also three great games, in which every visitor will be able to play,” reads the machine translated Blizzard statement.
“Gamescom present at this year’s Diablo III, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, and for the first time in a playable version in Europe, Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm.” For advanced impressions of Heart of the Swarm, check out our preview, the most recent screenshots and the first trailer for the expansion. Blizzard are planning to kick off a Diablo 3 beta later this year.
With that bit of business out of the way, the big question left to answer will be – who is going to perform at the closing ceremony this year?
