    BlizzCon® 2008 Gaming Convention Begins This Week

    IRVINE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Blizzard Entertainment, Inc.’s
    two-day gaming festival, BlizzCon® 2008, begins on Friday, October 10,
    at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The convention
    celebrates the communities of players surrounding Blizzard
    Entertainment®’s Warcraft®, StarCraft®, and Diablo® game universes.
    Attendees of the sold-out show will be able to play the latest versions
    of Blizzard Entertainment games as well as speak with developers in
    special panels, participate in tournaments and contests, and meet with
    fellow gamers and friends.

    Jay Mohr has returned to host the live contests this year, and the
    show will close on Saturday evening with an epic concert featuring
    comedian Patton Oswalt, Blizzard’s own Warcraft-themed metal band Level
    80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, and Video Games Live, who will be performing
    special orchestral arrangements of music from Blizzard games.

    “With more hall space, more attendees, and more attractions, this
    BlizzCon will be our biggest yet,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and
    cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re working hard with our
    partners to make this an unforgettable experience, and we’re looking
    forward to meeting players at the show.”

    For those unable to attend, DIRECTV® will be broadcasting the
    convention live as a pay-per-view event. Visit
    www.blizzard.com/blizzcon/dtv for more information. In addition,
    up-to-date show coverage will be posted at the official BlizzCon
    website, www.blizzcon.com.

    Anyone attending BlizzCon who is interested in pursuing career
    opportunities at Blizzard Entertainment should bring their resumes,
    demo reels, art portfolios, or business cards, as the global staffing
    team will be on hand to accept materials and discuss any job-related

    BlizzCon would not be possible without the enthusiasm of Blizzard
    gamers around the world and the generous support of AMD, Dell®,
    DIRECTV, Intel®, and other sponsors.
