NVIDIA Is Headed to BlizzCon 2014


Fall is upon us. The leaves are changing, the rain has come, and fans are preparing the new World of Warcraft Expansion. This can mean only one thing; BlizzCon 2014 is almost here!

This year is sure to be incredibly exciting, with announcements and news on all your favorite Blizzard games, in-depth developer Q&A panels, and amazing tournaments. That is just the tip of the iceberg; this is Blizzard after all and it wouldn’t be BlizzCon if they didn’t have a few cards up their sleeve.

What is NVIDIA showing this year?

This year at BlizzCon, we are continuing the tradition of bringing the latest and greatest in gaming technology to let you experience your favorite Blizzard games exactly as the developer intended.

What can you demo?

  • NVIDIA G-SYNC display technology featuring WoW and StarCraft II
  • GeForce GTX 4K Surround featuring WoW
  • The latest GeForce GTX notebooks featuring WoW, Diablo 3, and StarCraft II
  • NVIDIA SHIELD tablet featuring the WoW Armory
  • SHIELD Console Mode featuring WoW and Diablo 3

NVIDIA Daily Quest

Arm yourself for BlizzCon with a limited-edition NVIDIA foam shield. We are only giving out 500 of these Legendary armor pieces each day, so you must rally to your quest right away.

Participation is simple; like many quests, your task is to hunt and gather. Each day of BlizzCon, you must take a selfie in front of two identical logos. Once you have collected your quest items, bring them both to the NVIDIA booth to collect your reward. The first 500 fans who complete this task each day will claim their Legendary NVIDIA foam shield. Supplies are limited to first come, first serve and only to those that attend BlizzCon.

Quest Zones: Gigabyte, Razer, Rosewill, Turtle Beach

Day 1 - Saturday 11/7: Gather two selfies in front of the NVIDIA logo from two different Quest Zones.

Day 2 - Sunday 11/8: Gather two selfies in front of the GeForce claw from two different Quest Zones.

  • Travel to the NVIDIA booth and show the registration attendant both of your selfies.
  • Collect your reward.
  • Defend the Realm.
