As Gamescom kicks off in Cologne, Germany this week Blizzard is bringing all the Blizzard to Europe. With Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft II, StarCraft: Remastered, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Overwatch, and Diablo III all on the show floor. And in most cases with new stuff to show. Also, they'll be live-streaming developers on the main stage at the Blizzard booth to reveal some cool new stuff.
That's scheduled for 3:00am AEST on Thursday, 24 August, and you can check in on that at: http://gamescom.blizzard.com. Here's a preview of what's in store!
