Blizzard's annucal conference is back for 2019 and there could be some big news in store such as Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4. Here are all the details on when BlizzCon is and how you can watch the live stream.
When is BlizzCon 2019?
BlizzCon 2019 takes place on 1-3 November at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.
How to watch the BlizzCon 2019 live stream
If you're not going to BlizzCon in person then you can watch a live stream of the event online. Blizzard will be providing access to the opening ceremony for free, but you'll need a 'virtual ticket' to gain access to other part of the event.
The Virtual Ticket costs £34.99/$50 via Battle.net and will mean you get the All-Access Channel including exclusive developer interviews, the Community Night and Closing Festivities.
It seems pretty pricey but Blizzard also includes commemorative in-game loot to sweeten the deal. These include two Legendary Overwatch skins (Warcraft ones), a BlizzCon 2019 Card Back for Hearthstone and a Celestial Deepcrawler mount for Heroes of the Storm.
