BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket includes World of Warcraft Classic at-home demo

Those who opt to join the BlizzCon festivities via the Virtual Ticket will get to jump into the upcoming demo for WoW Classic.


Blizzard has begun unveiling its special goodies for those who order the BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket. The first reward was revelaed last week, that being a special Overwatch Legendary Diablo-themed skin for Sombra. This latest reward is aimed at the World of Warcraft player, particularly the old-school one.

Those who pick up the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket will receive a demo for World of Warcraft Classic (a.k.a. Vanilla WoW). The original WoW throwback was first unveiled at last year's BlizzCon. This offers classic servers with the game code rolled back as closely to the original as possible. Blizzard has been working to get the WoW Classic servers ready and now it looks like there's a demo at hand. The WoW Classic demo will activate after the BlizzCon Opening Keynote on Friday, November 2 and remain active until November 8 at 10AM PT. This will be the same demo that will be playable on the BlizzCon show floor.

For the more contemporary WoW player, Virtual Ticket carriers will also receive special in-game loot. All Virtual Ticket holders will receive the War Mantle of the Alliance, Stormwind Champion's War Banner, War Mantle of the Horde, and Orgrimmar Hero's War Banner. This further plays into the revived narrative of "Alliance vs. Horde" that rages forward in the Battle for Azeroth.

For more on the WoW rewards, visit the World of Warcraft website. The Virtual Ticket is available on the BlizzCon website. BlizzCon originates from Anaheim, CA from November 2-3.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college 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?
