30 May

Paris, France – May, 29, 2009

Blizzard Entertainment announced today that the second allotment of ticket-purchases for the 4th annual BlizzCon gaming convention will go live tomorrow, May 30th, at 10 A.M. PDT. Tickets are $125 each, with an active Battle.net account required for purchase. The event will take place from August 21st to the 22nd in the Anaheim Convention Center, and include hands-on gameplay with many of the developer’s anticipated titles, as well as tournaments, developer panels, and more. In order to streamline the process, Blizzard has made many changes to its Blizzard Store, including a fixed time limit for ticket purchases and a first come, first served queue system. Those looking to nab a few tickets will have to act fast, the first batch of tickets went on sale on May 16th, and were sold out within an hour. Those that are not able to attend the convention can check out the festivities through Pay-Per-View’s daily HD coverage of the event, a minimum of 8 hours of coverage a day for $40, and will come with this year’s World of Warcraft in-game item.
