Blizzcon

Do you have any interest in World of Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and/or Overwatch? If you answered yes to any of these, then you really should consider clearing your schedule this weekend. Why? Because BlizzCon 2015 will be taking place of course!

Blizzard’s annual conference kicks off on the 6th of November, and they’ll be talking about all of the above (and hopefully more) for the duration of the conference. Keen to follow all the proceedings online? You’ll need to grab a virtual ticket if you are.

It’ll cost you a whopping €29.99 (or $39.99), but does come with the following in-game goodies as an incentive:

  • World of Warcraft – Murkidan Pet
  • Heroes of the Storm – Nexus Battle Beast Mount
  • Hearthstone – Blizzard 2015 Card Back
  • StarCraft II – Xel’Naga and Spear of Adun Portraits
  • Diablo III – Pennant, Pet, and Portrait

Having a ticket will also grant access to the following content:

  • Developer Panels
  • In-Depth Interviews
  • Costume and Talent Contests
  • Closing Concert (Linkin Park)

Fear not if you’re a bit on the penniless side, for  the following will be streamed for free:

  • Opening Ceremony
  • StarCraft II World Championship Series Global Finals
  • Hearthstone World Championship
  • World of Warcraft Arena World Championship
  • Heroes of the Storm World Championship

Regardless of your choice, f you’d like to keep track of all the action, you can do so with the mobile app. Alternately, you can head over to the official schedule page to plan your time accordingly.

Personally, I’m excited for more Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch news. Blizzard’s MOBA is likely going to have a batch of new heroes (and possibly maps) announced, and their shooter? Well, they’ve already teased two new characters –  Hana “D.Va” Song and Mei-Ling Zhou . I wonder what else they have in store for it?

Other than that, I would love, love to see a really big surprise announcement. Is it time for Warcraft 4 yet? Or another Diablo III expansion? I sure hope so!

          • Hammersteyn

            But she’s a boy 🙁

    • Can you bring me back a Tricia Helfer?

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        Just transfer some money into my Steam account and I’ll make a plan

        • Cool. Make sure she packs a Kerrigan Costume and an EDI costume.

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Ugh, fine, I might spend some time…admiring…the costumes on her first though

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            No deal

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Stingy bugger!

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Unless the cabbage is able to cloak me, no deal

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I said it’s invisible, not magic or high tech.

            Oh well, guess I’ll have to find someone else that will give me a gnome rogue for an invisible cabbage.

  • SmurFyZA

    I would only buy a virtual ticket if it secured me an Overwatch beta invite. Hey they would definitely make a LOT of money that way

    • hairyknees

      I thought about that too. I think people would rage though 😛 would be a cheap tactic to make MOAR money

      • SmurFyZA

        It ultimately is your decision to make that purchase or not. I would definitely do it if I had the money and the option was there.
