You may have watched the live stream but if not then the good news is that BlizzCon 2017 Virtual Tickets are on sale and there’s Goody Bag Details Virtual Tickets are on sale now with discounts on goody bag pre-orders for Virtual Ticket owners. There’s also going to be even more on show this year on the live stream.
This year the Virtual Ticket will show all stages so you can choose what to watch. Also, for the first time there is an All Access Channel which will go behind the scenes and can be considered a “guided tour through the event and around the show floor”. The price? This year it’s going to cost £24.99.
Leading up to the event, the BlizzCon site will also be showing behind the scenes action with special videos and some of these are already online for viewing.
