Like Christmas, BlizzCon is arriving earlier every year. Yes, the actual convention doesn’t start until late October, but there’s a pre-show kickoff event taking place today, during which you can find out the in-game Overwatch skin awarded to all ticket holders both real and virtual. (We assume there will be other virtual stuff, but it’s not on the list.) You can also see an original video series about the event and the studio, so you’ll have something to watch before the main event starts up. In a month.
Those of you who have actual tickets, of course, will be able to enjoy a box of stuff that comes along with the convention, including a little vinyl figure of the eponymous Diablo and a set of Hearthstone magnets. There’s something for every game under the Blizzard banner, although one wonders if the World of Warcraft faction keychain is going to start a few show-floor brawls this year. And there’s no tote bag, if you like collecting those.
Obviously, we are planning to liveblog the convention as usual… but that’s in a month.
