BlizzCon Virtual Ticket Available Now, Comes With Legendary Overwatch Skin Based on Diablo 3

Gain access to two months of original video content.

BlizzCon kicks off on November 2-3, but for people who can't get to Anaheim Blizzard offers a Virtual Ticket that gives them access to video streams from the event. The tickets go on sale today and will unlock the first in a series of virtual goods for ticket holders: a legendary skin for Sombra in Overwatch.

Even though BlizzCon is two months away, Blizzard is promising immediate benefits to purchasing a Virtual Ticket. Those who purchase one today will have access to two months-worth of original pre-BlizzCon video content and series, with some videos launching today.

There's also what Blizzard is calling a Build-a-Panel poll where holders can vote on the panels they'd like to see present at the show. More details can be found on the BlizzCon Build-a-Panel blog post.

BLizzCon's Virtual Ticket Sombra skin.

The Virtual Ticket also comes with several digital goods for in-game content in Blizzard games. Not all of them have been revealed yet, but the first is a legendary Sombra skin modeled after the Hunter class in Diablo 3. The Sombra skin is available today for ticket holders.

You can purchase a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket from Blizzard at the official website for $49.99. BlizzCon begins on November 2 in Anaheim, California.
