BlizzCon Virtual Ticket Brings Warcraft Skins To Overwatch
You got MMORPG in my shooter.
Blizzard has outlined this year's BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, which will grant you access to in-game bonus items, extra panels including musical acts, and the closing ceremonies. It's on sale now through the official site for $50 / £35.
As always, the main attraction for those watching from home may be the exclusive goodies for Virtual Ticket holders. Some are already available for those who jump onto the ticket, while others will be hitting closer to the event.
Starting today, World of Warcraft gets faction leaders Finduin and Gillvanas, and a Wendigo Woolies transmog outfit. Heroes of the Storm players can claim a commemorative spray and portrait and a Celestial Deepcrawler mount. StarCraft 2 gets three new Brood War unit skins and portraits.
Coming closer to the event, Overwatch will get in on the WoW homage action for the first time, with an Illidan Genji and Tyrande Symmetra skin. Hearthstone players will be able to claim an exclusive card back as usual, but this year you can also get a Golden Legendary card that will be revealed at the show. Blizzard also says commemorative wings are coming for Diablo 3, but didn't outline when to expect them.
This comes alongside the round of panels, musical acts, Community Night, and esports tournaments. You'll also get access to the musical performances during the closing ceremony.
"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 new company president J. Allen Brack, in the announcement. "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 2019 will begin on Friday, November 1. If you're not a Virtual Ticket member, you can still watch many of the opening ceremonies as well as the esports tournaments for free.
