BlizzCon 2013 tickets on sale: April 24 + 27

BlizzCon 2013 is quickly approaching, taking over the Anaheim Convention Center on November 8 and 9. If you want to be among the thousands of Blizzard fans in attendance, you’d better be quick: Tickets go on sale in two batches, one on April 24 and the other on April 27.

…if you’d like to be involved in something a little different, tickets are also available for an exclusive pre-BlizzCon dinner to benefit Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

BlizzCon 2013: Anaheim, November 8-9

Here’s what you need to know:
Tickets for BlizzCon 2013 will set you back US$175 each – the same price as they were in 2011.

Tickets will be available on the official BlizzCon website (www.blizzcon.com) in two separate batches, to give everyone a decent chance at grabbing some.

The first will go on sale on Wednesday, April 24th at 7pm Pacific time (What’s that in my timezone?). The second is on sale from Saturday, April 27th at 10am Pacific time (What’s that in my timezone?).

Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment

We love having the opportunity to hang out with our players at BlizzCon, and it’s always awesome to see the greatest gaming community on earth swarm Anaheim. We look forward to delivering two full days of gaming, activities, and other entertainment, and we can’t wait to show some of the exciting projects we’ve been working on.

As a reminder, BlizzCon is an “annual-ish” two-day community gathering, a “thundering celebration” of all things StarCraft, Diablo and (World of) Warcraft.

The event will feature in-depth discussion panels with Blizzard staff and personalities, as well as hands-on play time with the latest games, and – this year – the StarCraft II World Championship Series Global Finals. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to mingle with like-minded gamers, fans, cosplayers, pro-gamers and developers.

Alternatively, you can pick up tickets for the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner (including admission to BlizzCon itself), for US$500 each, and proceeds going to Children’s Hospital of Orange County. This event will take place on November 7th, and “offers guests an opportunity to /eat, /drink, and /lol with Blizzard game developers, community managers, and other folks from Blizzard before the show.”

Tickets are extremely limited, and will be available for sale from Wednesday May 1 at 7pm Pacific time (What’s that in my timezone?).

…of course, Blizzard acknowledges that there are gamers from “the far reaches of Azeroth, the Koprulu sector, or Sanctuary” who might like to enjoy BlizzCon but cannot make it to Anaheim. For these die-hard, distant fans, a Virtual Ticket will be available, with more details to be announced at a later date.
