Blizzard and Diablo Anniversary parties at BlizzCon

blizzcon anniversary

It’s time to celebrate two anniversaries at BlizzCon 2016 and one of then is the Diablo franchise which hits 20.

25 years ago, a small group of gamers set out to create the kinds of game experiences they loved playing—and Blizzard Entertainment was born. Since then, the team at Blizzard has transported millions of people around the world to fantastic worlds of fantasy and science fiction—including Diablo’s Sanctuary, which first invited players to descend into the terrifying labyrinth beneath the Tristram Cathedral 20 years ago in 1996!

Please join us in celebrating these anniversaries on Friday, November 4 from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. in the Grand Plaza outside the Anaheim Convention Center during BlizzCon 2016. This event is open to everyone, whether you’re attending the convention or just happen to be in the neighborhood, and admission is free. We’ll also have some great food, special anniversary-themed drinks, entertainment—and even a surprise or two.

An Epic Night of Live Music

The main stage at the celebration will feature BlizzCon Talent Contest winners Songhammerperforming live—so grab some armor from your closet and get ready for an epic rock show.

Friday, November 4, 2016 from 8 p.m. through 10 p.m. PT

  1. “—and even a surprise or two.”


  2. The suprise is … we stop with the developmend for diablo
    The community is full of naggers and idiot ppl who can’t enjoy a nice made game …
    How can you make a party with this music shit !!
    Get some real music instead of this guitar hero shit music !
    my cat makes better noises !!!

    • What the Hell you and Ozi….. *listens to the music*….. don’t diss rock music, talk crap about these crappy musicians. Hell, check out the Megas. They do video game music right…. (The Belemonts? *Duh duh duuuhmmm*)

      • i did once listenen to rock shit
        been there done that … like i said my cat makes better noises
        i also like techno and other hard edm genres
        stupid guitar shit and there so called singer , just screaming and yelling in a microphone bah
        i gotta puke if i think about it.
        the first thing i do when playing a game is turning the music to 0 before i change the uber stupid wasd shit keys to the arrow keys :p and then put some real music on.

  3. good rock show my ass !
    get some techno next time

    that rock shit is getting to old and uber stupid !

    • Eh, Techno probably wouldn’t be the best fit for Diablo. I’d imagine a good ole’ acoustic set or a decent quartet because they’d fit into the traditional creepy/spooky feel of diablo with variations, mainstream techno usually follows the same C/F/G key. A pure rock or techno wouldn’t work (given we’re going with what those genres are expected). All in all, decent music to represent Matt Uelmen’s work that can even give NIN a run for its money.

      • it works for me :))))))
        i never play with music on what the game provides (all those game music is shit)
        if i where to make a game it had no music , just fx and an inbuild media player 🙂
