Blizzard Entertainment has announced the dates and location of the new BlizzCon 2019 event. The big Blizzard celebration will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in California in November. To be more specific, it will take place on the weekend on November 1st and 2nd. However, you can get the tickets much earlier, as they go on sale in two runs: next Saturday, May 4, and the next Thursday 9.
As always, the event will be full of video games, Blizzard fans, cosplayers, and of course, competitions. In addition, they have reported that this year there will be many more activities. You can meet the developers and even enjoy the celebrations a day before BlizzCon 2019.
BlizzCon 2019 will have three different types of passes
One of the biggest innovations offered this year is the possibility of different kinds of passes for the event. The BlizzCon Portal Pass, for $ 550, will allow you to access the previous Black Moon Fair event. In addition, you can enter the venue before Friday and Saturday and you will enjoy the MVP treatment in the security and registration queues. Lastly, you will also have exclusive parking.
We have a new ticket option this year: the BlizzCon Portal Pass. BlizzCon Passes, Portal Passes and Benefit Dinner Passes will all be on sale in two waves. Learn more here: https://t.co/tXaSRYY46Z

But it’s not all, because you can also get the traditional BlizzCon Pass. With a price tag of 229 dollars, this guarantees you the same privileges as in the previous BlizzCon. However, if you want to access the traditional charity dinner to meet the developers and more workers of the company, then you will have to get the BlizzCon Portal Pass with access to the dinner for $ 750. All the prices mentioned are without taxes, so bear in mind that you will have to spend a little more when purchasing the passes.
Every year, all of the proceedings from the dinner are donated to an organization concerned with children’s health and well-being: CHOC Children’s. You will meet some of the geniuses of the company while being a supporter of a good cause.
Get the best of eSports Action
The great attraction of the BlizzCon 2019 is the eSports competitions that are going to take place. Several Blizzard games will have their moment, such as Hearthstone, StarCraft, Overwatch and of course, World of Warcraft. You can enjoy the Hearthstone world final as the Hearthstone Grandmasters will conclude on Saturday, November 1st.

WoW will have two competitions: for the first time, the global final of the WoW Mythic Dungeon International and the WoW: Arena World Championship. After that, you can also watch the Overwatch World Cup and also the StarCraft II World Championship Series. Come on, it will be impossible for you to get bored that weekend.
Finally, you will not leave empty-handed. The BlizzCon 2019 entries include the possibility to choose between two collectible figures. They are the commemorative figures of the 25th anniversary of Warcraft. You can take home a human infant or an orc soldier. Choose the figure that you like the most when you buy the ticket and it will be waiting for you when you get there.
