Blizzcon 2008 Tickets on Sale August 11

BlizzCon 2008 is fast approaching, and tickets to the event will soon be available for purchase. Hot on the heels of Blizzard’s recent mega-event, the World Wide Invitational, BlizzCon is going to be another stage where Blizzard will exhibit the latest developments to its games. Hopefully, StarCraft 2 will get more exposure this time around, like it did on last year’s BlizzCon.

What else can be expected from the event?

In addition to serving as a gathering place for the different Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, BlizzCon will offer an array of activities, including discussion panels, hands-on playtime with upcoming games, tournaments, contests, and more.

The event is going to take place on Blizzard’s home turf, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California on October 10 and 11. For those who can’t make it or can’t afford the admission price, the event will be televised using DIRECTV pay per view in high definition.

“Meeting and interacting with our players at BlizzCon is always a great experience for us,” stated Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re also pleased to be working with DIRECTV this year to bring the show, for the first time, to those players who are unable to attend.”

Tickets for the convention will cost $100 each, and will be available for purchase on the official BlizzCon website. Pricing for existing DIRECTV customers and programming details will be available in the coming weeks from Blizzard Entertainment and DIRECTV.
