BlizzCon 2019 Virtual Tickets Available, Lots of Commemorative In-Game Goodies Included
Tickets to physically attend BlizzCon 2019 sold out months ago, but as in past years, those who want to watch the show’s various panels and events as they happen can now buy a Virtual Ticket to the show. Each BlizzCon 2019 Virtual Ticket will cost you $65, which may seem kind of steep, but it does come with a slate of exclusive in-game loot for all of Blizzard’s games. Here’s some of what’s included with your ticket:
- Overwatch - Mark 25 years of Azeroth as you fight for future Earth with two Legendary Overwatch skins based on iconic World of Warcraft heroes. Are you prepared for Illidan Genji and Tyrande Symmetra?
- World of Warcraft - Ride the tides of war with a pair of murloc-ified faction leaders: Finduin (for Alliance heroes) and Gillvanas (for the Horde!). Plus, bundle up for your next trip to the icy mountains with the whimsical Wendigo Woolies transmog outfit.
- Hearthstone - Bond over some fond memories the next time you sit down for a duel with the BlizzCon 2019 card back. Then prepare to draw a mysterious Golden Legendary card, to be revealed at BlizzCon.
- Heroes of the Storm - Make your mark in the Nexus with a commemorative BlizzCon spray and portrait, and ride into battle on Celestial Deepcrawler mount. It may not look dangerous, but those claws can give you a nasty pinch…or wipe out all life on your planet. Available now!
- StarCraft II - Equip a trio of Brood War–era unit skins and portraits the next time you go into battle. Scout for a zerg ambush aboard the Classic Battlecruiser, hunt your prey with the sinewy Classic Ultralisk, and honor Tassadar’s sacrifice with the Classic Carrier. Available now!
- And more! - More BlizzCon bonuses are in the works, including a pair of wings for Diablo III players—stay tuned for more details on this year’s legendary haul.
It will be interesting to see what Blizzard delivers at this year’s BlizzCon, as last year’s show, which saw the unveiling of the scorned Diablo Immortal, didn’t exactly go swimmingly. Since then, there’s also been layoffs at Blizzard and reports of Activision pressuring the studio to churn out more content. Could Blizzard make up for last year with, say, a big Diablo 4 reveal? Of course, that’s the rumor, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
BlizzCon 2019 kicks off on November 1 in Anaheim, California. What are you expecting/hoping for from the show?
