Get your blankets, tents, and folding chairs ready as you sit by your computer and keep refreshing Blizzcon.com, because at 10 PM Eastern Time on June 2nd, that's the only place you'll be able to buy your tickets for the 5th anniversary of Blizzard Entertainment's BlizzCon gaming extravaganza.
Since 2005, BlizzCon has been a beacon for the millions of gamers addicted to Blizzard's online multiplayer games like World of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo. Thousands upon thousands of people flock to the West Coast every year to meet their comrades, guildmates, and opponents in person in one of the biggest game enthusiast meet-ups in the world.
DirecTV even offers a pay-per-view broadcast package that provides live coverage of the event, as a $40 package...just to watch people play video games.
With very limited space at the Anaheim, CA convention center, tickets will be snapped up in an instant. Priced at $150 a piece, the tickets will be sold in two intervals - the first will be Wednesday, June 2nd at 10 PM Eastern Time.
For those who can't be at their computers at that time, or were unable to snatch up a ticket then, a second and final batch will be made available on Saturday, June 5th at 1 PM.
"BlizzCon is a unique opportunity for our players to meet one another, strengthen the friendships they’ve formed online, and have a great time celebrating a shared passion for gaming together with Blizzard employees," said Blizzard Entertainment CEO Mike Morhaime in a press release.
