Today kicks off BlizzCon 2023! Below we'll outline where you can watch the opening ceremony, as well as links to all our pre-BlizzCon coverage if you want to know what to expect, or want to get even more hyped before the event begins!
Where to Watch BlizzCon 2023
The BlizzCon 2023 opening ceremony is going to be streamed on both YouTube and Twitch. There are no drops during the hour-long presentation, so choose the platform that best suits your needs. YouTube allows pausing live streams, while Twitch has the infamous Twitch chat.
Note the opening ceremony will contain some mature content, presumably from Diablo IV, meaning the platforms may require an account that has proven it belongs to an adult in order to allow watching. Alternatively, you can also expect several prominent streamers of Blizzard's games who are not attending the event in person to watch the stream with their own audience.
