BlizzCon is just over a month away now. If you missed your chance to be there in person, Blizzard still has you covered with Virtual Tickets for the conference, complete with a whole bag of in-game goodies. And it appears one such digital extra will be new content for StarCraft II.
Available on the Blizzard website for $30 USD, the Virtual Ticket entitles you to HD streams of all the major panels, interviews and events at this year’s BlizzCon. On top of that however, the digital goods include extras for each of the developer’s games.
While the extras for the other games can be seen below, the announcement describes the StarCraft II items as a new portrait to be revealed later, and “as a bonus, be among the first to unlock a fun new piece of upcoming StarCraft II content.” It goes on to note that the goodie will also be available separately.
This comes less than a week after a survey surfaced on Reddit that seems to be Blizzard asking how players would feel about paid DLC in the sci-fi RTS game. Some of the suggestions include chat emoticons, unit skins, and even new announcer voices like Morgan Freeman, Snoop Dog, Thrall, and Murky.
As for the rest of the Virtual Ticker offerings, there is the Legionnaire Murky & Knight-Captain Murky pets for World of Warcraft:
An exclusive skin for Bastion in Overwatch:
A Diablo 20th Anniversary Pet for Diablo III:
The ‘Welcome Inn’ card back for Hearthstone:
And the Nexus Tiger mount for Heroes of the Storm:
While the Diablo pet is only good for the PC version of Diablo III, the Bastion skin will work for console versions of overwatch as long as you have connected your PSN or Xbox Live account with your Battle.net account. BlizzCon X will run November 4-5 in Anaheim, CA.
