BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo at Home With the Virtual Ticket

Explore a corner of classic Azeroth in our first-ever BlizzCon home demo experience, coming this NovemberAvailable now, unlock a treasure trove of BlizzCon commemorative in-game loot to show your faction pride as the Battle for Azeroth rages on

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. Learn more about our plans in the video below.

Shortly after the BlizzCon opening ceremony on November 2 (at or around 20:00 GMT), 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, it will be available to play until approximately 17:00 GMT on November 8.

We’re thrilled to be able to bring this piece of the BlizzCon experience to more people than ever before—and together with other interactive Virtual Ticket features that let online viewers vote and help shape the show, this BlizzCon is shaping up to be the biggest coming-together of our community yet.

Declare Your Allegiance With BlizzCon In-Game Loot

In addition to access to the BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo, BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders will receive their BlizzCon commemorative in-game items starting today, letting them proudly display their Horde or Alliance pride as the Battle for Azeroth continues to consume the world:

  • 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 these WoW items, BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders will also receive commemorative in-game items for every major Blizzard franchise. A legendary skin for Overwatch®’s Sombra and the Nexus Razorgrin mount and other items for Heroes of the Storm® are available now; the BlizzCon items for Diablo® III, Hearthstone®, and StarCraft® II will be revealed throughout October as the BlizzCon season continues.
