Blizzplanet got a hold of more details of Blizzard's newly announced video podcast
. You read that right, it's not just a podcast, but a video
podcast. And it's coming the first week of January.
Along with the previously announced interviews
Lead Designer Jeff Kaplan about the upcoming Patch 2.4 Sunwell
content and Art Director Sam Didier, fans will get their say as well. Blizzard will be soliciting questions from the players and giving replies to Community Managers Karune and Nethaera. I suppose that means we'll be seeing them on the Blizzcast as well.
Video podcasting is tricky business. Production value can make or break it. Fortunately, Blizzard is known for their high level of production value in everything they do, so I am looking forward to seeing how this goes. Either way, the content may trump all since we all want to know more about Sunwell.
But I'm also a little suspicious of the "first week in January" promise for the first Blizzcast. Coming out of a two week holiday, it will be a miracle for any company to pull off something as labor intensive as a video podcast. Time will tell.
]EDIT: After the writing of this article, Blizzard has confirmed that the first installment will be an audio podcast.
