Purchase a Virtual Ticket, and you’ll get a treasure trove of in-game goodies for Overwatch, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Heroes of the Storm, and Hearthstone.
Blizzard’s annual fan-facing extravaganza, Blizzcon, is right around the corner, taking place in Anaheim, California on Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 4, 2017. “We nearly think of it as the biggest thank you, we can give to the best gaming community in the world”, said Blizzard head of community development Saralyn Smith in an interview. “Year over year, we’re having more people tune in virtually, so naturally, we’ve been thinking about how we bring more and more of BlizzCon to than virtual audience”. “With that in mind, we’ve updated this year’s Virtual Ticket experience to cover even more of the show-including expanding our live coverage to all the stages”, said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.
“This is a series where we’re unearthing these legendary artefacts from Blizzard that have previously been unexposed to the public”, Saralyn explains.
Inside the Blizzard Vault: Journey into the top-secret Blizzard Vault, where we preserve original art and important relics from Blizzard’s history. One of the cool things we can also expect to find here are behind the scenes looks at the awesome Blizzard statues with input from the sculptors themselves.
“BlizzCon is a celebration for our entire community, including those joining us from their homes around the world”. This includes “behind-the-scenes action and areas like the Darkmoon Faire and Hearthstone Tavern, in-depth interviews with developers, community personalities, pro players, casters, and more”. Be sure to stay tuned to the IGN Blizzcon Event Hub for all the latest info as we head into Blizzard’s big show.
Lastly, Blizzard is ramping up for Blizzcon with a series of exclusive content and streams leading up to the event on the Blizzcon site. For the first time, Virtual Ticket holders will have access to every stage at BlizzCon, a new all-access channel, and special events featuring streamers, voice actors, and community creators.
