Blizzard has announced that tickets to their annual tradeshow Blizzcon, which celebrates their three franchises StarCraft, Warcraft, and Diablo, are going to be on sale in two batches on May 21 at 10 A.M. PST and May 25 at 7 P.M. PST for $175.
A limited number of tickets are also going on sale on May 28 for $500 that will grant access to an exclusive pre-Blizzcon dinner to benefit the Children's Hospital of Orange Country. There will also be virtual tickets available for $39.99 for those who can't make it to Anaheim, CA but want to watch a stream of the event.
This year's Blizzcon, which will take place on October 21 and 22, will once again feature panels with Blizzard developers, playtime with current and upcoming Blizzard titles (Heart of the Swarm?!), several professional gaming tournaments featuring players from all over the world, and other fun stuff like costume and dance contests and trivia contests.
If you are a fan of Blizzard games it truly is a treat to go to Blizzcon. I went to the event for the first time last year and it may have been one of my best gaming experiences ever.
