BlizzCon 2013 Tickets Go On Sale 24th and 27th April


You’ll have two pops at grabbing yourself a ticket to this year’s BlizzCon which will take place on November 8 and 9 in Anaheim, California.

Mark your calendars—a Blizzard is coming to Southern California! Tickets for BlizzCon® 2013 will go on sale in two batches on Wednesday, April 24 at 7 p.m. PDT and Saturday, April 27 at 10 a.m. PDT through the official BlizzCon website. In addition, a limited number of tickets to an exclusive pre-BlizzCon Benefit Dinner will go on sale Wednesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. PDT.

BlizzCon 2013 takes place November 8 and 9 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, and tickets to the two-day show will be available at $175 USD each. Tickets to the Benefit Dinner (which includes admission to BlizzCon) will be priced at $500 USD each, with proceeds benefitting Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Tickets to previous BlizzCon events have sold out within minutes, so be sure to synchronize your hourglasses.

The ticket price of $175 is the same as it was for BlizzCon 2011 after a hike up from the year before that when they went for $150. I’m sure the cost of running the event has increased since 2010 so it’s surprising (and welcome news) to see ticket price frozen.

  1. I’d be curious to hear more about this so called Titan game,.. but then again,. It’s a MMO,. and it’s blizzard activision – do we really expect it to be much different from WoW in a new coat of (cough) lore?

  2. It’s impressive the opinion change about blizzard since the last Blizzcon…I think disappointment is the word that defines ACTIVISION-Blizzard….erm….Sad Panda.

  3. I’m interested enough in the D3X that I’m going to watch a pirate stream again this year.

  4. I wouldn’t worry about D3X for a couple years

    • I just wouldn’t worry about it, period.

      • Why are you reading a diablo fan site if you don’t care about the franchise anymore?

        • People like you are worse than the game was at launch, the butthurt part of the community is the only remaining bitter part of the game.
          Go and find a hobby, son.

    • The thing is, Diablo 3 is the only disappointment Blizzard has.

      StarCraft 2 is widely considered to be one of the best games in recent memory and is one of the top e-sports (I think it’s only behind LoL in terms of popularity). The only problem with WoL was the (too) cheezy story and that’s fixed in HotS. General concensus from all the people I’ve talked to, online and offline about it, is that the story is quite good. AND, Blizzard is doing a 1.6 million dollars series of worldwide tournaments next year to support and promote StarCraft e-sports.

      And, as for World of Warcraft, after the disappointment of Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria is actually really, really good. The lore is not in fact, LOL PANDAS, but is detailed, interesting and, unlike Cataclysm, not painfully obvious and boring. The new difficulty for raids is fun if you’re into hardcore raiding and Pandaria is a great place to explore. The only problem with MoP is that, while just about everything has been improved, it’s still at it’s core, World of Warcraft. But, if you enjoyed WoW before, MoP is great.

      So, yes, D3 was definately a disappointment, but it is the only one that Blizzard has right now.

      • HotS has a better story than WoL, but just barely. There’s still a lot of cheese, but to be honest, about as much cheese as SC1/BW. Not everything they do can be Warcraft 3.

        As for the game, Swarm Hosts are ridiculously overpowered. I love/hate those things.

    • I honestly think they’ll announce it this year. When it’s coming out is another story.

      • I have to agree with Raze. Blizzcon will be almost exactly a year and a half from the release of D3 and that seems like a perfect time to make an announcement of a D3 expansion. Assume that they want to hype it for a good amount of time, so maybe with a lead of about half a year to a year before release and we’re either looking at an expansion two years or two and a half years after release. That timetable seems to make a lot of sense to me.

  5. *twirls finger* let me know when they are planning on announcing diablo 3 expansion 🙂

  6. Am I the only one still wanting them to integrate voice chat directly into the game? If you want people to coordinate while playing, wouldn’t having the option to talk to one another in game be beneficial? Haven’t seen any talk of that on Blizzard’s end.

  7. Who cares… Blizzard ruined the only remaining franchise I cared about

  8. be nice to hear about the expansion

  9. 175 bucks? I wouldn’t pay 5 cents for those. They’d have to pay ME if they want me to attend 🙂

  10. Seriously, who the f*ck goes to these?

    Seeing content in person that you can find online anyway? I don’t get it. For 175 dollars you can buy:

    -a good wakizashi samurai sword on Ebay
    -about 4 tanks of gas (for most cars)
    -17 albums on iTunes <——
    -Probly 2 or 3 new outfits from Target (including a daily discount Bluray)
    -some awesome legendaries and crafting components on the RMAH

  11. $175 dollars , they are having a laugh . I’m a cheapskate and would think twice if it was $50 , wow …..

  12. $175, eh? damn that Jay Wilson! 😉

  13. I’d be willing to buy multiple tickets and shell them out for free ( if it was that easy to get them ) If those that went expressed the same type of d3 rage verbally and in person that we get here and in other places on the internet. I would love to see some d3 panelists have their balls busted over the mess of d3 and called out on it in person.

  14. 175 euro,. i dont think so.
