A Diablo III date? If it happens, you’ll hear it here first. Or maybe first-ish.

Both Justin and Nathan are heading to Blizzcon today, with the main keynote kicking off at 11.00am PST/7.00pm GMT/8.00pm CET.

Blizzard’s providing free, limited video streams here. DIRECTV subscribers can also catch the opening ceremony for free on the 101 Network. Get details here.

Expect Diablo III to get a good showing here, so keep it locked for a megaton. A date would be very nice. Two other press conferences are taking place at the event this weekend, and we’ll be covering both live. Here are the details: Friday, October 22

  • Main keynote: 11.00am PST/7.00pm BST/8.00pm CET

Saturday, October 23

  • Diablo III and World of Warcraft press conference with Jay Wilson, J Allen Brack: 12.00pm PST/8.00pm BST/9.00pm CET
