Blizzard’s sent out a gentle reminder that BlizzCon starts this Friday, so expect plenty of Blizzard-related news this weekend.
“With more hall space, more attendees, and more attractions, this BlizzCon will be our biggest yet,” said Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime.
“We’re working hard with our partners to make this an unforgettable experience, and we’re looking forward to meeting players at the show.”

Anyone thinking about picking up one of the new tickets should know that the offer is only open to those with an active Blizzard Account as of 9.00pm PST on August 12, the time Blizzard first posted its “Sold Out” notice.
