Blizzar’d biggest fans need to set their calendars and alarms.
Blizzard announced today that tickets for BlizzCon 2017 will go on sale online in two batches on April 5 and April 8. BlizzCon is a fan event that takes place in Anaheim, CA every year. This year’s convention will go from November 3 to 4. Tickets cost $200 each.
On April 5, tickets go on sale at 7 p.m. Pacific. On April 8, you can purchase them at 10 a.m. Pacific.
BlizzCon gives Blizzard a venue to make announcements for some of its most popular games, including Overwatch, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, and Heroes of the Storm. It also gives fans a chance to play new content early and watch professional gamers compete in esports events.
Blizzard also releases a digital ticket for the event. It allows people who purchase it to watch many of the show’s events live from home, and it also gives them in-game goodies for Blizzard titles.
