Blizzcon Virtual Ticket and Goodie Bag Information

Blizzcon 2016 info

BlizzCon 2016 is right around the corner, and today virtual tickets have gone on sale. If you’ve never bought a virtual ticket, it’s a great way to keep up with all things BlizzCon from home. This ticket gives you the virtual BlizzCon experience, letting you stream most panels, esports, and contests live as well as on demand. For $40, we think it’s a bargain.

The virtual ticket grants you access to:

  • Developer Panels – Get a first look at the latest developments in World of Warcraft®, StarCraft® II, Diablo® III, Hearthstone®, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch®—all live from the main and panel stages.
  • Exclusive Interviews – Want to go deeper into your favorite Blizzard games? Get even more insider info from members of Blizzard’s development teams in exclusive in-depth interviews.
  • Community Contests – Watch your fellow players put their creativity on display in the costume, talent, art, and movie contests on Friday evening.
  • Closing Ceremony – Snag a front-row seat for the Saturday-night closing celebration, and help us give a weekend full of Blizzard gaming and esports action a raucous send-off—more information to come!
  • On-Demand Replays – Miss a panel or just want to revisit your favorite moment? The Virtual Ticket provides access to on-demand replays of main-stage and panel-stage events for three weeks after the show.

Other perks include:

  • The same in-game goodies ticketholders receive
  • Access an online version of the BlizzCon store with unique merch
  • The ability to buy the BlizzCon physical goodie bag, packed with BlizzCon 2016-only gear

There’s no word yet on which digital goodies we’ll be getting as they’ve neither been announced nor are they in-game. Typically there’s a WoW pet, a Hearthstone card back, a Diablo 3 banner, a Heroes of the Storm mount and/or portrait, and we certainly expect something Overwatch-related to be added — possibly a new spray or skin?

However, we do know what’s in this year’s goody bag:

  • World of Warcraft coaster
  • Overwatch inflatable Reinhardt hammer
  • Diablo polyhedral dice with bag
  • Hearthstone microfiber screen cleaning cloth
  • StarCraft zergling antenna topper
  • Heroes of the Storm ETC guitar pick keychain
  • BlizzCon Blizzard stein

Before you can get digital items or access to the store, you’ll need to check your mailbox for your digital bonuses code and apply it to your account. While the digital goodies and con-specific merch aren’t available yet, you can apply the code now for access. However,goody bags are on sale now for virtual and physical ticketholders. All ticketholders will receive a bag at BlizzCon but can purchase an extra for a double dose of swag. If you want one you should grab it now — you can only buy one per account and last year they sold out fairly quickly.
