Blizzcon has always been the mecca for gamers who adore everything Blizzard. From Overwatch to Heroes of the Storm to Hearthstone to World of Warcraft, and so on, every year gamers from around the world journey to the Anaheim Convention Center to show their love and support for the Blizzard brand. In 2018, Blizzard plans to do it up just as big, if not bigger, as last year’s sold out event!
On May 9, 2018 and May 12, 2018, attendees can begin purchasing their tickets for the giant gaming convention. For $199, Blizzcon 2018 attendees will get admission to both days, November 2nd and 3rd, of the con and a commemorative goody bag full of loot for their favorite Blizzard games. You can start pining for ticket sales to open by clicking here.
Leading up to the 2nd and 3rd day of November, Blizzard will once again host their annual esports events from Blizzard Arena Los Angeles on October 25-29. The initial rounds of the StarCraft® IIWorld Championship Series Global Finals, the Heroes of the Storm® Global Championship Finals, and World of Warcraft® Arena World Championship Finals will take place, leading up the winners being crowned on November 2nd and 3rd at Blizzcon 2018, where Overwatch and Hearthstone tournaments will also be held.
If for some reason you aren’t able to attend any of the events, Blizzard is planning on bringing Blizzcon 2018 to you. Just like they’ve done in previous years, Blizzcon 2018 will have periodic live streams that fans can watch for free. However, the meat of the broadcasts will be reserved for people who purchased the Virtual Ticket. More details on the Virtual Ticket to be revealed at a later date.
Moreover, there is a way for gamers and Blizzard fans to punch their ticket to Blizzcon 2018 and help out a worthy cause, at the same time. On May 16, 2018 at 7pm PT, tickets for the benefit dinner will go on sale for $750, with all net proceeds going to CHOC Children‘s, a pediatric health system in Orange County. A donation will allow to you rub shoulders with Blizzard developers, artists, and community representatives on the night of Thursday November 1st. Plus, it includes admission to both Blizzcon 2018 days. Tickets are limited.
Blizzcon 2018 promises to be one of the biggest gaming events of 2018 and your month to start saving for it starts…now!
