BlizzCon Dates Revealed With Three Pricey Ticket Options

The convention is expanding this year, and so are some ticket prices.

Blizzard Entertainment is once again hosting its annual BlizzCon fan celebration this year. Dates for the event are set for November 1 and 2, with tickets going on sale in two waves: Saturday, May 4 and Wednesday, May 8. This time there are three total ticket options fans can buy that are more expensive than the last.

BlizzCon is Blizzard's annual celebration for all things related to Blizzard video games. There will be cosplay, demos, previews, and esports tournaments for Blizzard's most popular titles including Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and more. There are also special announcements that will be made during Blizzard's annual keynote. Perhaps this year we'll finally see Diablo 4.

This year BlizzCon is introducing a couple new items and events. Blizzard announced that it's expanding the show to take up more active hall space, and there will be new "BlizzCon Pregame Festivities," a casual get-together outside the Anaheim Convention Center on the day before the actual show.

A standard weekend pass for BlizzCon will cost $229, not including your travel or lodgings. This year BlizzCon is also introducing the Portal Pass for $550.

The Portal Pass includes preferred parking, separate registration and security lines, access to a lounge to rest and hang out with Blizzard developers, and access to the Darkmoon Faire during the new "Night at the Faire" event. This will take place on the night before BlizzCon.

Finally, there's the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner pass for $750. This is a returning pass that gets buyers access to a laid-back charity dinner hosted the night before, with benefits going to CHOC, the Children's Hospital of Orange County. The pass lets you eat and mingle with Blizzard devs and gain the full advantages of the BlizzCon Portal Pass during the show.

Blizzard also announced this year's collectible coming with any BlizzCon pass. Buyers can choose between either a human knight statue or orc statue to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Warcraft. These statues look really nice, actually, but con-goers can only choose one and their selection will be locked in at checkout for BlizzCon passes.

BlizzCon is scheduled for November 1-2 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can purchase your tickets here.
