The event will take place at its usual venue, the Anaheim Convention Center, on August 21 and 22. Tickets are priced at $125 apiece, and will be sold through the official BlizzCon website. nope Blizzard notes that those unable to secure tickets on May 16 will have a second shot, as another block of tickets will be released for sale on May 30. The company has made improvements to its Blizzard store interface, including a first-come, first-served queue system.
BlizzCon will again be broadcast on DirectTV, with customers able to tune in for the price of $40. However, fans will also be able to tune into a Pay Per View internet stream this year, for the same cost. Anyone who orders either broadcast will also receive this year's BlizzCon-exclusive World of Warcraft in-game item.
