If you're unable to attend BlizzCon, the Virtual Ticket is the flawless way to experience everything happening in Anaheim, and be the first to know about any news that drops at the annual event. There is a limit of one Virtual Ticket per Blizzard account. While both of those heroes got a blue BlizzCon-themed skin, this year's BlizzCon skin is a departure from that trend, inspired instead by the Demon Hunters of Blizzard's Diablo series. While esports streams and the opening ceremony are free to everyone, virtual ticket holders get access to additional coverage of the event, as well as the chance to build a panel for the show via voting and access to the Blizzcon 2017 archives. The very flashy Demon Hunter Sombra was unveiled in a tweet last night, where she was labelled as an "exclusive legendary skin", that you can only access by purchasing a ticket for this year's event. Fans are anticipating an announcement for Diablo at BlizzCon, which might be why Sombra's skin is taken from the game. At the bottom of that BlizzCon post, there's some small print that says "the in-game items for Overwatch, StarCraft II, and StarCraft: Remastered will also be available separately in 2019".
The BlizzCon Virtual Ticket is available to buy now (or as a gift) for $49.99.
BlizzCon, a celebration of Blizzard Entertainment's games, esports and the communities that pump life into them, is less than two months away but the harsh reality is that most of the company's fans won't be able to travel to California in early November to take in the festivities in person.
