Want to go to BlizzCon this year? Today, Blizzard Entertainment announced that tickets for BlizzCon 2010 will go on sale in two batches on Wednesday, June 2 at 7:00 pm Pacific time and Saturday, June 5 at 10:00 am Pacific time. Tickets will cost $150 and will be available for purchase at www.blizcon.com. The event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in southern California from Friday, October 22 through Saturday, October 23.
Last year, tickets for the event sold out in a matter of minutes. With games like StarCraft II, Diablo III, and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm on the horizon, we doubt that getting tickets will be any easier this year. As always, Blizzard’s official statements about what will be revealed and available for play are vague. Here’s what they had to say:
In addition to serving as a gathering place for Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, BlizzCon will offer attendees a chance to enjoy:
- Hands-on play time with upcoming Blizzard Entertainment games
- Discussion panels with Blizzard Entertainment developers
- Competitive and casual tournaments for players to showcase their talents
- Community contests with great prizes
- Commemorative merchandise based on Blizzard Entertainment’s game universes
- More exciting activities and attractions to be announced.
Still, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what Blizzard fans can expect to see for StarCraft II, Diablo III, and World of Warcraft at this year’s convention. So check out our predictions, and join the speculation party.
