BlizzCon ticket sales open May 16

By on
Blizzard Entertainment’s BlizzCon convention is locked and loaded. The annual two-day celebration of their most successful franchises: Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo is set to commence on August 21 and 22 in Anaheim, California. Tickets are expected to cost $125 each on the official BlizzCon website, with two sales phases scheduled. The first block of sales will open worldwide Saturday, May 16th, and a second on the 30th. In light of the frustrations caused by a lack of ticket availability last year, BlizzCon will have more floor room available in this year's edition.

DirectTV is also slated to televise the convention in HD as a pay-per-view event with floor coverage, interviews, demos and more. The televised portion will cost $39.95, which will bag you a minimum of eight hours of HD footage. Players of Blizzard's blockbuster World of Warcraft who order either broadcast will receive the BlizzCon-exclusive in-game item. Attendees will of course get it as well as part of their BlizzCon goodie bag.
