Blizzard 2008 Worldwide Invitational Tickets On Sale

Tickets for Blizzard’s upcoming major event, the 2008 Worldwide Invitational, are about to go on sale in two days. On the 20th of March – this Thursday, fans of Blizzard and their games will be able to purchase tickets to the event.



What exactly is planned for the event?

The Worldwide Invitational is a two-day event bringing together the company and gamers in a convention atmosphere, featuring:

  • A chance to try World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King and StarCraft II
  • Discussion panels with Blizzard developers
  • Artist and developer signings
  • Competitive and casual player tournaments
  • Costume, dance and other player contests with great prizes
  • Live musical performances
  • Merchandise; a silent auction; and much more…

In last year’s WWI in Korea, Blizzard used the opportunity to announce and exhibit StarCraft 2 for the first time. We’ve already speculated what this year’s event has in store for us. Since the Zerg race has already been announced, our other prediction will possibly come to be – the StarCraft 2 beta might be announced.


Where and when will the event take place?

  • Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th of June 2008.
  • Hall 5 of the Porte de Versailles Exposition Center, Paris, France.

The price of one ticket is 70 € / £55, and it’s worth every penny:

In addition to invitational tournaments featuring top eSports competitors playing for a total of $100,000 in prizes, the Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational will also host casual tournaments for attendees, costume and dance contests, live musical performances, and more. All attendees will also receive a goody bag of Blizzard Entertainment items including a beta key for an upcoming Blizzard Entertainment game and an exclusive World of Warcraft in-game pet.

See you there!
