  • You don’t need a BlizzCon ticket to get Demon Hunter Sombra – if you can wait

If you're unable to attend BlizzCon, the Virtual Ticket is the flawless way to experience everything happening in Anaheim, and be the first to know about any news that drops at the annual event. The very flashy Demon Hunter Sombra was unveiled in a tweet last night, where she was labelled as an "exclusive legendary skin", that you can only access by purchasing a ticket for this year's event.

This year's BlizzCon legendary Overwatch skin has been revealed.

▲ What will the new skin be? (The Blizzard skins are unlockable in regular loot boxes, but the BlizzCon exclusive skin is only for virtual and IRL attendees.) In 2016, the BlizzCon-themed skin was for Bastion. Blizzard's portfolio of games may be relatively small, but each is one of if not the most popular and successful in its respective genre. The broadcast is available to everyone and is a sneak peek at what virtual ticket holders will have access to come November 2nd and 3rd.


The new skin is the only selling point for the Virtual Ticket, of course. Items for Heroes of the Storm, World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Hearthstone and StarCraft II have yet to be revealed.

BlizzCon 2018 will take place November 2-3 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, while Blizzard will also be holding BlizzCon Opening Week from October 25-29 at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles in Burbank, California.

Full details for the Vitual Ticket can be found on the BlizzCon website. Overwatch Players who buy the Virtual Ticket will be able to unlock Demon Hunter Sombra immediately.
