Blizzard now offers
sales of virtual tickets to BlizzCon 2013, to allow
those interested in their November gaming convention to attend from the comfort
of their own homes:
The BlizzCon Virtual Ticket will give you live online
HD coverage of the event, taking place Friday, November 8 and Saturday, November
9 at the Anaheim Convention Center. You’ll get access to both days of the show
via two exclusive channels, including the developer panels, exclusive
interviews, community contests, and the closing ceremony, along with on-demand
replays and DVR functionality. Note that Virtual Ticket coverage will be
available in English language only, so keep that in mind before you purchase.
Since we know everyone likes epic loot, anyone who orders a Virtual Ticket
will also receive this year’s BlizzCon-exclusive in-game goodies for World of
Warcraft®, StarCraft II, Diablo III, and Hearthstone™: Heroes of Warcraft™
(details coming soon).
You’ll also get access to an exclusive, limited-time online pre-BlizzCon
merchandise sale featuring a selection of commemorative items that will be
available for purchase at the show.* This special pre-BlizzCon sale is scheduled
to take place over a 5-day period in the weeks leading up to the show, and will
be followed by a public sale offering a more limited selection of items. We’ll
have more details on the pre-sale in the coming weeks.
