As with recent years, Blizzard will be offering a virtual ticket to fans, allowing them to stream the convention's big keynote conference, developer presentations, and Q&A panels.
The new BlizzCon All-Access channel will serve as the official Virtual Ticket tour guide all weekend as hosts take viewers around the show floor, behind the scenes, and deeper into the games through exclusive interviews. For those who can't wait to get started, the season of BlizzCon starts today at www.blizzcon.com, where gamers can watch several series of all-new videos, which will have new episodes regularly in the weeks leading up to the convention. "We nearly think of it as the biggest thank you, we can give to the best gaming community in the world", said Blizzard head of community development Saralyn Smith in an interview. Alliance players will get the Stormwind Skychaser, while Horde players will get the Orgrimmar Interceptor.
A customizable viewing playlist, making it easy for Virtual Ticket holders to catch all their favorite moments live. The opening ceremony and BlizzCon's eSports events are free for everyone. "This year's Virtual Ticket also unlocks a $10 discount on this year's Goody Bag, featuring a collection of commemorative gear to mark the occasion", Blizzard said on the Blizzcon website.
"The 2017 Virtual Ticket gives you a front row seat to more than 60 hours of Blizzcon content from wherever you are".
