Blizzard is getting ready for BlizzCon 2019, scheduled to start on November 1st. The annual event invites Blizzard community members from all around the world to celebrate their favorite franchises with two days of games, esports, cosplay, contests, and surprises. If you can’t make it to BlizzCon in person this year, you can still watch content from the main stage through the livestream. You can also order the BlizzCon 2019 Virtual Ticket, which is available to purchase now in the Blizzard Shop.
The BlizzCon 2019 Virtual Ticket offers commemorative extras to help players get into the convention spirit, and offers digital items for “World of Warcraft,” “Overwatch,” “Hearthstone,” “StarCraft II,” “Heroes of the Storm,” and “Diablo III.” Blizzard also teased that more content will be revealed at a later date. The Virtual Ticket also unlocks access to in-depth, comprehensive live coverage of the show, including the BlizzCon All-Access Channel, the Community Night contests on Friday, the closing festivities (featuring to-be-announced musical performances), and three stages’ worth of developer panels that take players further inside their favorite games.
“This year’s BlizzCon is shaping up to be our best yet, and we want to make sure everyone in the Blizzard community can experience it together, whether they’re joining us in person, from home, or hanging out in-game,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to delivering an epic experience for those watching our free broadcasts—which we’ll have more of than ever before—and for everyone tuning in for all of the extras provided with the Virtual Ticket.”
BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders will receive a pair of faction leaders: Finduin for the Alliance heroes, and Gillvanas for the Horde players. Players will also get a Wendigo Woolies transmog outfit, and Overwatch players will get Warcraft-themed legendary Overwatch skins. These skins include Illidan Genji and Tyrande Symmetra. If you prefer Hearthstone, you will also get a mysterious Golden Legendary card, which will be revealed at BlizzCon. The Heroes of the Storm content includes a commemorative BlizzCon spray and portrait, and a Celestial Deepcrawler mount. There will also be a trio of Brood War–era unit skins and portraits. You’ll find a Classic Battlecruiser, a Classic Ultralisk, and a Classic Carrier.
BlizzCon 2019 will also feature more free streaming content, starting with the opening ceremony on November 1st. Also, esports fans will once again be able to watch all of this year’s BlizzCon esports tournaments for free, including the Overwatch World Cup and the culmination of the World of Warcraft Arena World Championship, WoW Mythic Dungeon International, Hearthstone Global Finals, and StarCraft II World Championship Series.
