As with every new BlizzCon, this year’s event will too offer a virtual ticket for those who prefer to follow the show from home.
The BlizzCon 2018 virtual ticket is available for purchase now, and one of the bonus in-game items you get with your purchase is a Diablo-themed, Demon Hunter skin for Overwatch’s Sombra.
You can use the skin today if you fork out the cash for the virtual ticket,
and that’s the only way to get it. Update: Thanks to Alex Webb for pointing out that all the in-game bonuses, including the Sombra skin, will be available in their respective games in 2019. Blizzard mentions this in the fine print.
BlizzCon 2018 doesn’t start until November 2, but you can buy the virtual ticket starting today.
Virtual ticket holders also get exclusive goodies in Diablo, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, StarCraft 2, StarCraft: Remastered, and Heroes of the Storm – though these have yet to be revealed.
As a bonus, you’ll also receive a $10 discount off this year’s Goody Bag, available through the Blizzard gear store. The ticket is priced $50/€40.
As ever, you can also expect unlimited access to all livestreams from BlizzCon with the virtual ticket, including VoDs and plenty of shows not available to regular viewers. Then there’s the vault, a collection of behind-the-scenes videos and interviews with Blizzard developers.
