BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket purchase includes Legendary Diablo-themed Sombra skin for Overwatch

The Overwatch reward for this year's BlizzCon Virtual Ticket was revealed during Wednesday's BlizzCon All-Access Kickoff Show.


BlizzCon 2018 is kicking off just a little bit early. On Wednesday, BlizzCon hosts Alex Albrecht, Michelle Morrow, and Malik Forte jumped on the BlizzCon All-Access Kickoff Show to reveal some of the convention's early details. The biggest reveal centered around a certain BlizzCon Virtual Ticket goody for Overwatch.

Those who pick up this year's BlizzCon Virtual Ticket will pick up a Legendary Skin for Overwatch. It's a unique skin that crosses over with another of Blizzard's properties, as hacker Sombra gets a Demon Hunter skin that's themed after Diablo. This is only the first of the in-game rewards to be revealed. Anyone who purchases the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket will also receive a specific in-game reward for each of the games under the Blizzard umbrella. That includes World of Warcraft, Diablo III, StarCraft II, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. Those rewards will be revealed at a later date.

The BlizzCon Virtual Ticket is now available through the BlizzCon website, but there is one item worth noting. The Virtual Ticket price is going for $49.99 this year, which is up from the $39.99 of past years.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
