BlizzCon Goody Bag

BlizzCon Virtual Tickets are officially on sale for $40, and this year Blizzard is offering up physical goody bags (the same ones offered during badge pickup) for an additional $35. Of course we all know the Virtual Ticket offers non-stop premium coverage of the event being held November 6th and 7th at the Anaheim Convention Center. But folks also get their share of some sweet in-game digital loot such as pets, mounts, banners, or trading cards. In years past, Virtual Ticket holders were left wanting as fans in attendance also received physical items in the form of a goody bag. However, now you too can enjoy the awesome loot without forking over hundreds of dollars in tickets, travel, and lodgings.

“BlizzCon is the ultimate Blizzard community event, and we’re thrilled to give even more people around the world a chance to be a part of it with the Virtual Ticket,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Whether they’re hearing cool news about their favorite game, cheering on the community contests, or getting behind-the-scenes insight from the developer panels, we want everyone at home to feel like they’re right there with us.”
