Blizzard announced via press release that ticket sales for BlizzCon 2010 will again be in two batches. This year, ticket sales are on Wednesday June 2 at 7:00 pm PDT and Saturday June 5 at 10:00 am PDT, the earlier of which is just two weeks away. As has been the case in previous years, tickets will be available on Blizzard’s online store, and prices have again been raised as they are now $150 each.
As in previous years, both a DIRECTV pay per view event and an internet stream will be available for $39.95, and all users who purchase either will get the yet to be named in-game item. Different from last year, the internet stream will have multiple channels so that users can switch between panels, getting whatever news they may be interested in. In another change, anyone who orders the DIRECTV pay per view event will receive the internet stream for no extra charge.
If you can’t afford either the flight to California plus tickets option or the online stream option, some of the events, including the opening ceremony, will have limited free streams available online.
As previously announced, BlizzCon will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center on October 22 and 23. If you still don’t have a Battle.net account and are interested in tickets, make sure to register for one before tickets go on sale.
We’re looking forward to what Blizzard has to offer at this year’s BlizzCon, and hopefully we’ll see some of you there as well.
