Shortly after the BlizzCon opening ceremony on November 2 (on or around 1pm PDT), players will be able to download the same in-development BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo that will be playable on the show floor. Players will have a chance to explore and enjoy a limited questing experience through a pair of classic early-level zones—one Horde and one Alliance—and experience firsthand our recreation of the original Azeroth.
Once the demo is live, you’ll be able to play until 10am PST on November 8, giving BlizzCon attendees a chance to check it out again once they get back home.
As usual, the Virtual Ticket also includes a bunch of in-game items and goodies to be unlocked across all of Blizzard's games including Overwatch, Diablo III, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm II, and Starcraft II. Those will be revealed closer to BlizzCon 2018 (due to take place Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California), but the in-game items designed for World of Warcraft have already been unveiled.
DECLARE YOUR ALLEGIANCE WITH BLIZZCON IN-GAME LOOT
In addition to access to the BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo, starting today BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders will receive commemorative in-game items that will help them proudly display their Horde or Alliance pride as the Battle for Azeroth rages on:
- War Mantle of the Alliance & War Mantle of the Horde: Show all of Azeroth where your allegiance lies with a pair of faction-themed cosmetic cloaks—one for Horde characters, and one for Alliance.
- Stormwind Champion’s War Banner & Orgrimmar Hero’s War Banner: Strike fear into your enemies and stand your ground when you plant your faction’s banner on the battlefield.
