The Virtual Ticket offers in-depth coverage of the convention via special multi-channel streams. Like last year, if you purchase a Virtual Ticket, you also have the option of purchasing a special BlizzCon goodie bag (while supplies last). More details on the Virtual Ticket, including pricing, availability, good bag info and channel programs will be announced at a later date.
Don’t forget to check out the BlizzCon Ticket page for more information, and be sure to visit the Universe ticket page at the dates and times above for a chance to purchase a ticket to the show. Just remember — BlizzCon sells out every year, so be prepared to wait in queue for your tickets.
