World of Warcraft® Classic BlizzCon® Demo
Every BlizzCon, we look for opportunities to bring new aspects of the experience to our community around the world. This year, we’re excited to announce that for the first time ever, BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders will join BlizzCon attendees as the first people to play the World of Warcraft Classic demo we’re creating for BlizzCon at home.

Shortly after the BlizzCon opening ceremony on November 2 (on or around 1pm PDT), players will be able to download the same in-development BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo that will be playable on the show floor. Players will have a chance to explore and enjoy a limited questing experience through a pair of classic early-level zones—one Horde and one Alliance—and experience firsthand our recreation of the original Azeroth.

Once the demo is live, you’ll be able to play until 10am PST on November 8, giving BlizzCon attendees a chance to check it out again once they get back home.

Declare Your Allegiance With BlizzCon In-Game Loot
In addition to access to the BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo, starting today BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders will receive commemorative in-game items that will help them proudly display their Horde or Alliance pride as the Battle for Azeroth rages on:

  • War Mantle of the Alliance & War Mantle of the Horde: Show all of Azeroth where your allegiance lies with a pair of faction-themed cosmetic cloaks—one for Horde characters, and one for Alliance.
  • Stormwind Champion’s War Banner & Orgrimmar Hero’s War Banner: Strike fear into your enemies and stand your ground when you plant your faction’s banner on the battlefield.

In addition to this year’s WoW items and access to the BlizzCon WoW Classic demo, the Virtual Ticket provides plenty of great BlizzCon content for your viewing pleasure along with additional in-game goodies from Overwatch®, Diablo® III, Hearthstone®, Heroes of the Storm®, and StarCraft® II.

    Sunday has:

    Diablo: World Q&A

    does that mean a new Diablo game?

    is that an un-intentional leak?

    Is Diablo the big announcement this year then? Wow panel was straight after the opening last year and that was the bfa announcement.
  1. Pepe The Frog's Avatar
    there is fewer and fewer panels each year, they cut the amount of panels (game panels) by 50% from last tyear lol.

    What next for WoW. Release date of BFA retail.

    Sorry,lol. Couldn't resist.

    One interpretation of this is that they have left room on the schedule for one extra panel on the Mythic and Epic stages by cutting each to 45 minutes and spacing them out. Possibly to add a last minute diablo panel in?

    Rumor has it they have been hiring *ALOT* of blizzard devs recently for an MMO, and namely Diablo game, which putting two-and-two-together means we are likely getting a second mmo from blizzard in the form of a diablo style mmo, which honestly is not too surpising as they are becomming a popular trend among the eastern asian market atm in the likes of lineage eternal and lost ark online being some of the hyped ones.

    Diablo was obvious, whether or not it's Diablo 4 or something else on the other hand, now that is the question.

    There's also a Diablo netflix series coming out.

    Sooo we're getting one less stage at 10$ more than last year The wow classic demo pushed me into the getting the ticket category but I'm glad i decided to wait till November to get the ticket because this schedule right here made me reconsider my decision and now I won't be getting it after all. I just can't justify the price when we're losing out on a big chunk of content compared to last year.

    I can't find the mythic dungeon race, wasn't the whole point of last MDI that the top 4 teams are invited to Blizzcon for a live dungeon race? Where's that? All I see from WOW is arena tournament and random panels about cinematics, voice acting and classic WOW. Well if they didn't convince me before to not give them the 50$ for virtual ticket I'm defo convinced now. 45 min of "what's next" in each game and very skimpy amount of panels.

    Looks incredibly weak. Let's hope there are some reveals.

    Looks like a dry year for WoW news, but I guess we were expecting it. Did the panels get trimmed down overall? Well hopefully the Diablo news will be interesting if that is their headliner.

    wow-wide theres not alot they can really talk about though. We know the main stuff in 8.1 and by November it'll be way to early to talk about 8.2 in solid terms. So it will be 8.1 in detail and maybe like hints towards 8.2.

    i don't know if anyone has pointed it out yet but Diablo is Diablo, usually it's DIII or the diablo III symbol, this is a good sign, it means either they're move away from D3 with a new game installment like Diablo 4,
    or a HD remake. I'd play the shit out of a D1 or D2 remake.
    They did it with starcraft, this is a good possibility and one I welcome

    Im going with Diablo 2 Remastered.
  1. beanman12345's Avatar
    Hmm, Idk, it's only 2 panels, for a new diablo? That seems a little low? I'm not getting my hopes up. Though 2 is double what it's been in past years lol.

    Was hoping they would announce a new game but looking at the time schedules, they didn't leave any room for anything new like they did the year that announced overwatch.
