Blizzard Announces BlizzCon 2019 Dates, New Ticket Option
It's that time again, Blizzard fans. Recently, the company announced the dates for Blizzcon via Twitter, as well as when tickets will go on sale. Blizzard also announced that a new kind of special ticket will be available to fans this year.
As always, BlizzCon will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, on the weekend of November 1-2.
As this year marks the 25th year of Warcraft, Blizzard has some special stuff planned, including a commemorative collectible or two. In fact, rather than doing a normal goodie bag, the company will be offering fans a choice between one of two premium statues. Players can choose between two Warcraft figures, the Orc Grunt or the Human Footman.
There's a catch, though: Interested attendees will need to decide which statue they prefer before buying tickets as Blizzard will only make a select number of statues based on interest.
When Can You Buy Blizzcon Tickets?
Purchasing tickets will be broken into two rounds. The first round takes place on May 4, while the second round will be on May 8.
During this time, fans can purchase one of three different ticket types:
- The regular BlizzCon Pass
- The new BlizzCon Portal Pass
- The BlizzCon Benefit Dinner ticket, which supports charity
The BlizzCon Pass is the core ticket and will get fans into most things BlizzCon related.
For something a bit more special, the BlizzCon Portal Pass offers a variety of extras, including access to the special "Night at the Faire", which takes place on the eve of the convention. The pass also offers preferred parking, separate registration and security lines, the option to be first in line for the shows, and access to a dedicated lounge.
As is the case every year, the Blizzcon Benefit Dinner ticket is relatively expensive but it offers fans a chance to have dinner with Blizzard employees and the surplus goes to charity. This year, purchasers of this ticket will also get Portal Pass perks as well.
