Update: It appears the opening ceremonies and all the sports streams will be free. Developer panels and all main stage presentations will be with the virtual ticket. BlizzCon.com, Twitch and MLG.TV will all have the free streams. We apologize for the error.
Original Story (fixed and updated): BlizzCon 2016 kicks off today in Anaheim, CA, and many of us are not lucky enough to be able to attend. But you can watch a lot of the events including the opening ceremonies right from the comfort of your own home right here.
Blizzard is streaming opening ceremonies for free, but viewers who paid $40 for a Virtual Ticket will get many of the panels and and some in-game goodies.
The events kick off with World of Warcraft Arena championships at 9 a.m. PT / noon ET, but the big event today will be the opening remarks by Blizzard CEO Mike Morheim and reveals from the various project leads. Those begin today at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET. After that, the convention will devolve into smaller panels for each of the company's six franchises, and only seen through the virtual ticket.
What do we expect?

  • Diablo 4, and expansion or a Diablo 2 HD edition are a good bet, given the 20th anniversary of the franchise.
  • StarCraft 2's Nova Covert Ops missions are wrapping up, so possibly a new set of missions may be announced.
  • World of Warcraft Legion has done extremely well, so updates on a new patch and maybe even a new expansion announcement could happen.
  • Hearthstone recently launched Karazhan, but has been getting hints of something surrounding Gadgetzan, so a new expansion is likely.
  • Overwatch has been hugely successful, so a Sombra reveal and news of the next step in the story could be forthcoming.
  • Heroes of the Storm has been getting new heroes on a regular basis, but nothing has leaked, so anything is possible.
Also, the World of Warcraft movie, despite it's tepid reception in North America, has been a huge hit in China, so maybe Duncan Jones has a tease on a sequel he wants to share. And Weird Al will be there, so that is definitely a plus.
It's all speculation at this point. If you can't watch the opening ceremonies, then watch our news stream as all of us will be watching an posting news as it happens.
