The Hearthstone HCT Fall Championship will return to Blizzard's bespoke esports arena in Los Angeles next month.

Running from 11th-14th October, the tournament will see 16 of the world's best Hearthstone players come together at the Blizzard Arena to battle it out across a series of elimination and decider matches.

The tournament will be broadcast across the usual Hearthstone channels throughout the event, and the decisive final matches on the 13th and 14th will also feature a live audience.

If you're watching online, head over to the official Hearthstone Twitch channel, which will be broadcasting from 8.30am PDT each day.

Those attending in person can look forward to a number of activities in addition to watching the tournament's biggest matches play out live. The following bonus events were confirmed in the blog post announcing the event:

  • Play-a-Pro: Attendees will also have the chance to challenge pro HCT players, with more prizes on offer. You'll also be able to bag an autograph or two while you're there.
  • Fireside Gathering: A special Fireside Gathering in-game event will also be available for attendees to get involved in.

Everyone who attends the event will also be able to pick up exclusive merchandise, and also unlock a unique in-game card back (pictured above) for getting involved.
