Five Things We Hope to See at Blizzcon 2013

FEATURE | ? Comments |

Author: Michael Revis  

With Blizzcon officially set to make a return this year at the Anaheim Convention Center this November, the obvious question that's on everyone's minds is just what exactly does Blizzard have in store for us? Diablo III is out the door, WOW: Mists of Pandaria is still going strong, and Startcraft II: Heart of the Swarm is set to be unleashed in a couple weeks.

So what possible reveals could one of the biggest PC game developers out there have, and what could they have planned to improve on their existing products? Let's go over some of the possibilities, both the obvious, and the more hopeful ones.

1. World of Warcraft Expansion

This one should be a no-brainer, since Blizzard has made it known that they've been trying to push for sooner expansion releases and cut down the amount of dead air in between content launches. And, if the leaked release schedule from a couple years back is anything to go by, then we may have one more expansion left before the most successful MMORPG of all time starts to wind down, if such a thing is even possible.

The real question, however, is what will this new expansion entail? Will we see a new race? A new class? Both? Will Blizzard finally make the jump to a full on F2P model? Where will the expansion be set at? And more importantly, how long can Blizzard continue milking this decade old cow for all its worth?

2. Diablo III Expansion

Another very likely possibility. After all, if the ending to the story is any indication, Adria is still running around likely causing trouble and is no doubt slightly pissed at Diablo being defeated once again. It also falls in line with the same pattern Diablo II went through, which saw the Lord of Destruction expansion a while after the game's original release.

For this one, we can probably expect two things to be certain: the inclusion of team deathmatch PvP, which Blizzard has been working since before the game even launched to find a way to make it not horribly broken, and even more loot to spend countless hours farming for (with hopefully less reliance on the real money auction house). The game has been steeped in controversy since its launch, but there's no doubt that a lot of people still play Diablo III and are eager to see what Blizzard plans on doing to improve it, especially with the PS4 version looming on the horizon.

3. Blizzard All Stars

Originally intended to be an official mod for Starcraft II, Blizzard All-Stars (originally titled Blizzard DOTA) is now slated to be a stand-alone F2P MOBA title that brings in popular characters from all of Blizzard's main franchises. However, actual information on the game, especially in regards to a release date, has been mum since it was revealed back in 2011.
