How to watch the BlizzCon opening ceremony livestream

The BlizzCon (opens in new tab) opening ceremony starts today at 11 am Pacific, and you can watch it all in the YouTube player above or on Twitch (opens in new tab). This is where all the big announcements are made, and we expect lots of World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, StarCraft, Overwatch, and Heroes of the Storm news. If you miss the stream, keep an eye on our news feed (opens in new tab) for all the stories.

The BlizzCon 2017 opening ceremony and esports streams are free, though if you want to see absolutely everything, you'll need a Virtual Ticket (opens in new tab). Bo is on the ground at the show, and we'll have coverage all weekend.

He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
