BlizzCon is always a difficult event to get tickets for. That’s why several Blizzard fans each year opt for BlizzCon Virtual Tickets, which are returning this year as they do every year, with added value to the normal $40 price tag. If you were hesitant about spending the cash before, you might be swayed by the fact that you truly do get more this year.
If you opt for a Blizzard Virtual Ticket this year, you’ll be able to watch presentations on every stage during the show instead of just a few. You’ll get to “sit in” on developer panels, contests, Q&A programs, the opening ceremony, and eSports events as well. You’ll also get access to the BlizzCon All Access channel that allows for behind-the-scenes looks at areas the public may or may not see during their time there. All of this expanded content comes at the standard price of the normal ticket, so you get extra things to watch and extra goodies as well.
If it’s in-game loot you seek, you’ll get in-game content for Hearthstone, Overwatch, Diablo III, StarCraft II, World of Warcraft, and Heroes of the Storm. There’s no information just yet on what kind of in-game stuff you’ll get for buying a ticket, but rest assured you’ll get some super sweet merch. Hopefully some very cool Overwatch skins, because that’s what we’re all here for, right?
BlizzCon 2017 itself takes place November 3 through November 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, but if you choose the Virtual Ticket, obviously you can stay right at home to watch what happens.
