Blizzard said it will sell a limited number of tickets to BlizzCon Opening Week — the first time many fans will get to attend those events in person — later this year. And that Opening Week is going to be a big one, with some great events planned.
There’s lot of events planned for BlizzCon in 2018. The expected game announcements is one thing, but with Blizzard focusing so heavily on Esports, we can expect a lot of events and announcements for games like Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch. More specifically, the opening week event will include the opening rounds of the StarCraft 2 World Championship Series Global Finals, the Heroes of the Storm Global Championship Finals and World of Warcraft Arena World Championship Finals. Those Esports competitions will culminate the following week at BlizzCon, along with the Overwatch World Cup and Hearthstone Global Games.
